From Heaven Winging

This beautiful Christmas song can be used:

  • To teach the rhythmic element 'too' (minim / half note).
  • To play the chords for older students to do an aural chordal analysis. The simplicity of the melody and rhythm lends itself to this activity. The chords used are: I, ii, iii, V and vi.
  • To present it to your class as a melodic dictation and then they can figure out their own chords for the song.
  • For discovering musical sequences.
