More Than 100 Videos for Your Music Lab

For years, I’ve been collecting videos from all over the internet for my student’s music lab time.

This has resulted in two major sets of videos:

Music Theory Videos

Fun Music Videos

Access to both of these video series is FREE for Piano Pantry readers!

In order for students to easily access the videos, I would suggest you bookmark the link in your web browser or as an icon on your tablet.

It is important to note that since these are YouTube videos, individual videos may come unavailable at any time. It may be available one day and it gone the next. These types of things are completely outside of my control.

While I always found it nice for my students to have these videos, I needed a way to remember which ones they had watched from week to week, month to month, and even year to year!

Thus was born the corresponding Music Lab sheets!

 

Music Theory Videos

The Music Theory Videos lab series is a culmination of the best videos I’ve found online that teach music theory concepts.

The list is in no way exhaustive. That is, there may not necessarily be a video available for every music theory concept students learn in music lessons.

The videos have been divided into four sets based on a rough/general order in which concepts are introduced in most piano methods. They may not line up exactly, but you can simply assign individual videos based on what the student has already been taught in their lesson time.

It is recommended that you do not use the videos to teach the students the concepts, but simply to reinforce what you and the student have already learned together in your lessons. Since it is divided into four sets, students will likely only complete one set of videos each year, depending on how quickly they progress.

All videos can be found here.

Fun Music Videos

This series was the result of occasionally needing extra items for lab time. I assign this lab when students are caught up on other music labs.

Of course, 95% of the time we want students doing something in that’s that isn’t just “busy work” but sometimes an easy laid-back lab like watching videos like this can be fun and the students love them! They can be absolutely inspiring!

The videos have been organized into eight themes.

  1. Classical Music Fun
  2. Inspirational
  3. Musical Humor
  4. Unique Instruments
  5. Playing with Popular Tunes 1
  6. Playing with Popular Tunes 2
  7. Music History
  8. The Evolution of the Piano

Be aware that students have been known to continually go back and watch some of their favorite videos several times when they’re supposed to be watching new videos. 😊

All videos can be found here.

 

Corresponding Music Lab Sheet

This download is five pages long, covering more than 60 videos in eight sets.

Future Update

Several years ago, I discovered (and still use), Leila Viss’s amazing Get Inspired series.

My future goal is to include another version of the Fun Music Videos lab that is more interactive with reflection questions for each video similar to the Get Inspired series.

For now, the lab sheet is a simple track, rate, and comment setup. 🙂
