Musical Instrument Handout Sheets

Are you learning about the guitar, violin, or drums in your classroom? These color-able diagrams pair well with lessons about these common musical instruments. They can be used to help students learn and test on different parts of the instruments, or as fun extras to take home at the end of class.

As you work with these handouts, consider tackling some of the following questions: 

  • What parts of the instruments do you recognize?
  • Where have you seen/heard this instrument before?
  • What parts of the instrument are unfamiliar?
  • Does the sound of this instrument evoke a particular color, emotion, or texture?
