"In the Hall Of the Mountain King" Listening Activities

I love Halloween time because its the perfect time of the year for listening to “spooky” music.  One of my favorite “spooky” pieces for Halloween is “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from The Peer Gynt Suite by Edvard Grieg.  Classicsforkids.com has a great resource this month that includes a listening map, biography of Edvard Grieg, and other activities.  Click here for a direct link to their PDF you can download.

I also found a great blog post through Pinterest from Beth’s Music Notes on a variety of lessons and activities using “In the Hall of the Mountain King.”  Her resources appeal to a wide range of ages and learning styles.  Great ideas, Beth!
