Candy Corn Staff

Candy Corn Staff


Teachers can use this Candy Corn Staff in private or group lessons.  Call out line/space notes, spell note words or 5-note patterns, or have the students compose their own piece and play it.  I use Candy Corn and let the kids keep the candy when they are finished by any note markers will do.  You could also laminate the pages and use a dry erase marker, so you can reuse for next year.  Happy Haunting!

In addition to running a large private studio, Susan also teaches masterclasses for area schools and has worked to develop music programs for the YMCA. When she’s not planning classes or performing, you can find her hiking, searching for 5-star waterfalls, and exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest surrounded by her favorite color:  Green! To learn more, visit
