Valentine’s Day Videos for the Music Room

Red and pink glitter hearts with the text "Valentine's Day Videos for the Music Room"

Looking for fun Valentine's Day videos for your music lessons? Here are five videos to add to your Valentine's Day video playlist, to practice rhythm and listening skills!

#1: Valentine's Day Body Percussion

This is a fun video to practice steady beat and to practice body percussion patterns! It would also be a good way to get kids up and moving.

#2: Rhythm reading for half note and whole note

I absolutely love the Ready Go Music channel! This is a fun video to practice half note and whole note with students. On the channel, they also have other easier versions of this video (i.e. for ta, ti-ti, and rest, for preparing ta and ti-ti, etc.)

#3: Valentine's Day Freeze Dance

This video would be super fun for K-2, to get them up and moving, and to practice control of their bodies!

#4: Rhythm reading for ta, ti-ti, and rest

This video would be perfect for practicing ta, ti-ti, and rest. Students could simply read along with the rhythm patterns, or they could play along on non-pitched percussion instruments!

#5: "Love Dream" 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. As students are listening, they can think about these questions.

  • What do you notice?
  • What do you wonder?
  • Which word(s) would you use to describe this song?
