Fall Videos for the Music Room

Looking for fun autumn videos for your music lessons? Here are five videos to add to your fall video playlist, to practice rhythm and listening skills!

#1: Fall rhythm reading for tika-tika

I created this video to have students practice tika-tika, or sixteenth notes. You could use this at the start of a lesson, or as a transition from one rhythmic activity to another! I also created this one for half note, this one for syncopa, or eighth/ quarter/ eighth.

#2: Fall rhythm reading for ta, ti-ti, and rest

I absolutely love the Ready Go Music channel! This is a fun video to practice ta, ti-ti, and rest with students. If students are in the preparation phase, you could simply have them read with “red” and “yellow,” and if they know ta, ti-ti, and rest, you could start with the colors and then move to the rhythm syllables.

#3: Football rhythm reading

Since fall means football, this would be a super fun way to practice ta, ti-ti, rest, half note, and whole note! I LOVE the music in the video; students would definitely be engaged while reading!

#4: "Autumn Leaves" by Nat King Cole

“Autumn Leaves” is such a beautiful song, and this video showcases the colors of autumn! You could have students watch the video, then have them answer questions, such as:

  • What do you notice?
  • What do you wonder?
  • What do you value?
  • Which word would you use to describe this song?

#5: "Autumn" from "Four Seasons" on piano

This video is a helpful way for students to visually see notes on the piano, and to improve their understanding of rhythm and melody. I love that it's a simpler version of “Autumn,” so those who know how to play piano could see themselves learning it!
