A Music Font for Music Teachers

Just wanted to take a moment to tell you about one of my latest finds.  I make most of my own worksheets, all of my own bulletin boards, Smartboard activities and manipulatives.  To do this I really need a great set of music notation symbols.  I've used clipart of notes, symbols and more before and even created my own.  They work well, but if I'm working on a big project it takes forever.

So a font that has all of the notes, symbols, etc... that I need would be perfect.  Found one!  It is called Note-able Font and you can find it in Musical Magic's TpT store.  This is her description: "This is an affordable, user-friendly, must-have music tool for teachers and self-publishers for use on a PC or Mac/Apple computer. This package includes two fonts: (1) traditional notation (notes, rests, articulations, etc.) and (2) Kodaly and Orff-style notation (stick rhythms, Curwen hand signs, icons, etc.) for a total of 175 sharp, professional music notes and symbols for personal, classroom and small commercial use. No additional commercial use license is required as long as you include credit and a link. You will also receive a detailed user's guide with instructions, keyboard charts, helpful hints and practice guides. "

I found it to be quite intuitive and loved the hand signals and other things that felt like "extras" in this set.  The user's guide was easy to read and quite helpful.  I know...I sound like a commercial!  I think that you'll like it too. 

Christmas Color by Music Symbol is the latest thing I've created using this groovy font.  Can't wait to use them with my kiddos!
