Johann Strauss Junior is famous for his waltzes. Many of them are performed at the annual New Year’s Eve gala in Vienna. Polkas are dances, too, but they are in 2-time. This handout for the teacher contains suggestions on how to use the music in the classroom.

I’m interested in your suggestions of how to teach Haydn’s Clock Symphony, but I could not access the pdf through your website ( or any of the other pdf’s for teaching music in class). is there any way to send pdf’s directly to my email?
Many thanks

Hi Judy, it seems that these resources have been removed from the Lyric FM website. I’ll see if they can be tracked down.
