Singing Christmas Carols in the Classroom


'Tis the Season for Singing!

There's music everywhere over the next few weeks in the run up to Christmas. What better way to spend your time than making some of your own in the classroom.

Below we've compiled a list of 15 well known Christmas carols which you can incorporate into your music lessons this month. To download them, click on the link and from there you can print them out for the class.

These can be sung unaccompanied or if you find a nice recording on YouTube or a musician who can accompany the singing, you and the class will be able to sing along. Creating your very own Christmas chorus within the classroom is the perfect way to get that festive feeling!

Happy music making!
