"In the Hall Of the Mountain King" Listening Activities

I love Halloween time because its the perfect time of the year for listening to "spooky" music.  One of my favorite "spooky" pieces for Halloween is "In the Hall of the Mountain King" from The Peer Gynt Suite by Edvard Grieg.  Classicsforkids.com has a great resource this month that includes a listening map, biography of Edvard Grieg, and other activities.  Click here for a direct link to their PDF you can download.

YouTube Videos

As I surfing the web and looking for other resources to use while I teach "In the Hall of the Mountain King," I found two great YouTube videos that you might want to use as well!








Listening Maps

Classicsforkids.com has a great resource this month that includes a listening map, biography of Edvard Grieg, and other activities.  Click here for a direct link to their PDF you can download.

Also, MakingMusicFun.net has another good listening map that you can print and students can touch and follow as they listen.  Click here to see download that FREE listening map.  



Rhythm and Other Listening Activities

I also found a great blog post through Pinterest from Beth's Music Notes on a variety of lessons and activities using "In the Hall of the Mountain King."  Her resources appeal to a wide range of ages and learning styles.  Great ideas, Beth!

  2. I think, directly outside they had a cafe where they serve snacks and wine- although we went the cheap route for dinner (a food truck on the side of the street!) I want to come back here again.
