No School on Halloween is a mid to late elementary piece that expresses the thoughts of many kids on halloween! Why do we have to have school today? We won’t do much anyway! This piece has an intensity that builds and builds and gives teachers many opportunities to teach a variety of articulation.

What level is No School on Halloween?

The smallest rhythmic value in No School on Halloween is the quarter note. While it does not have eighth notes (which would easily make it late elementary), the chorus contains a fun hands together passage that is great for the developing elementary student.

No School on Halloween has all kinds of contrasting articulation and dynamics, making this quite the audience-pleasing solo!

This piece modulates through different keys, but all the accidentals are written in, making it easy to read and learn.

Features kids love!

No School on Halloween has an exciting glissando at the end of this piece! [Definitely have them play it with an index card.] In addition, the first two pages create an easy, but slow-building intensity that is unusual in early level pieces. Plus there is also a hand over hand arpeggio in the piece. The right hand also plays notes in the bass clef in the chorus for a deep and mature sound.

Bonus mp3 included

With your purchase and to help students learn the piece, we are including a bonus mp3 recording of the music without the lyrics. You are free to send this to students you directly teach who are learning the piece.

    One of my students is performing this piece in our Halloween recital this weekend and he is very excited about it! He loves the glissando at the end and is able to make it sound so much better with the use of the index card! What a great idea! It’s a fun piece and I’m sure I’ll have other kids play it in future years. The studio license is great for using with as many students as I want!

    This piece is hilarious and fun to play. I especially appreciate the rhythms that could be a little difficult for younger ones to play…they can learn these rhythms by using the words. Brilliant. Thank you, Wendy!
