Baa, Baa, Black Sheep | Beginner Piano Sheet Music

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep is a popular English nursery rhyme with its earliest surviving version dating back to 1731. The song has been used in popular culture as both a metaphor and an allusion. The song is sung to the variant of the French melody Ah! vous dirai-je, maman, which is similar to the Alphabet Song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. With the rhyme in trochaic metre in its single stanza, the Roud Folk Song Index classifies its lyrics and variations as number 4439. The song is said to be about the resentment towards taxes levied on the Medieval English wool trade as well as the slave trade. However, in today’s modern times, the nursery rhyme is used for educational purposes which are to teach children about life in the countryside and to imitate the sound that sheep make.

Lyrics for ‘Baa, Baa, Black Sheep

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full!

One for the master,
One for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.

Baa, baa, white sheep,
have you any wool?
yes sir, yes sir,
three needles full.

Cotton-Eyed Joe | Easy Guitar Sheet Music (Notation & Tab)

Cotton-Eyed Joe is an American folk song. It was popularized by the Swedish Eurodance band, Rednex, when they made their 1995 debut studio album, Sex and Violins. The song was an international hit – particularly in Norway where it stayed in the number one spot for 15 weeks. It also took the No. 25 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100. Cotton-Eye Joe remains a popular choice for weddings, and at sports arenas.

The origin of the folk song is unclear, however, American folklorist Dorothy Scarborough in her book, “On the Trail of Negro Folk-Songs” (1925), claimed that the song originated in Texas where negroes could be heard singing it on plantations.

This digital print sheet music edition of Cotton-Eyed Joe is arranged for the advancing guitar student with at least two years of lessons. It’s a three-page arrangement that features traditional notation and tablature, and there’s an mp3 file on the site that students can listen to as they practice.

Lyrics for ‘Cotton Eye Joe

Do you remember a long time ago,
There was a man called cotton-eyed Joe.
There was a man called cotton-eyed Joe.

I could have been married a long time ago,
If it hadn’t been for cotton-eyed Joe.
If it hadn’t been for cotton-eyed Joe.

Old bull fiddle and a shoe-string bow,
Wouldn’t play nothin’ but a cotton-eyed Joe.
Wouldn’t play nothin’ but a cotton-eyed Joe.

Play it fast or play it slow,
Didn’t play nothin’ but cotton-eyed Joe.
Didn’t play nothin’ but cotton-eyed Joe.

Don’t you remember a long time ago,
Daddy worked a man called cotton-eyed Joe.
Daddy worked a man called cotton-eyed Joe.

Where do you come? Where do you go?
Where do you come from, cotton-eyed Joe?
Where do you come from, cotton-eyed Joe?

Come for to see you, come for to sing,
Come for to show you my diamond ring.
Come for to show you my diamond ring.

Harry Potter (John Williams) | Music Listening Glyph Worksheets

Wish you had an easy to assess your music classroom students all at once? Listening glyph worksheets make it as easy as it gets!

Print Music Lesson Plan Worksheets

Harry Potter (John Williams) | Music Listening Glyph Worksheets

harry-potter-listening-gylph

Listening glyphs are perfect for assessing K-3 students as they listen to music recordings. As they listen, students are asked questions like, “Is the music fast, medium or slow.” They respond by coloring an area of the picture one color or another. For example, music students are asked to listen for a “steady beat.” If they hear a steady beat they should color Harry Potter’s face pink. If they don’t hear a steady beat they should color Harry Potter’s face blue.

This simple response lets you know what each student is hearing immediately, and allows you to quickly shift your instruction to address student understanding.

Products Contents
Harry Potter (John Williams) | Music Listening Glyph Worksheets pack includes three listening glyphs and an “About This Activity” page.

The General Listening Glyph is designed for use with any piece of music from the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone movie soundtrack. Students are asked to listen for steady beat, staccato/legato, tempo, amplitude (dynamics – loud/soft), the size of the music group, if there are singers or not, and if they hear string family instruments.

The Harry Potter’s Wondrous World Listening Glyph asks students to listen for music elements in the Harry’s Wondrous World  from the original movie soundtrack.

There’s also a blank listening glyph that’s included to provide you with the freedom to assess anything you want to. Teachers can choose any piece of music and decide on the musical elements they want their students to listen for.

The last page of the packet includes instructions and lesson extension ideas.

Harry Potter (John Williams) | Music Listening Glyph Worksheets

About John Williams and Harry Potter
Harry’s Wondrous World, composed by John Williams,  is a theme that represents Harry Potter in the films Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Harry’s Wondrous World was played during special features for both films but was absent in later movies as the series moved on to other composers and much darker themes.
