This 11-page download includes:
- 3 student pages: Melody (previewed above), Harmony, and Get Creative
- A create variations tracker: A checklist for students to keep track of different creative combinations they’ve used (such as waltz bass, what keys they’ve transposed to, creating an introduction/ending, etc.)
- 3 teacher pages: Suggested teaching tips for approaching each area including a “bonus” page with some extra MLT-inspired activities if you would like to take the audiation-based instruction a little further.
- 2 notated pages: One with the melody only and one that includes chord root harmony. These are included as a reference for your convenience, but I would strongly encourage teachers to consider not giving students the notation.

Happy Birthday By Ear: The Ultimate Teaching Resource
Thank you for your weekly Friday Finds. They are so fun to read! Thank you also for creating cool Music Labs and your Happy Birthday product. I think I’ve just purchased all your lab products that I didn’t have!
Please continue to create these really neat products to help us as teachers be effective with our students. I currently have lab time for 2nd-6th graders and your products work well for them.
