April’s New Downloadable Worksheets

Romeo And Juliet – Dire Straits
The 23rd April marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare. This worksheet for this song, based on perhaps his best-known play, was written by Mena Bianco, Naples.

God Save The Queen
Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 90th birthday on 21st April. The worksheet for Great Britain’s national anthem was written by Roy Boardman, who was awarded an M.B.E. at Buckingham Palace in 1989 for his work in building up cultural relations between Italy and the UK.

Somebody That I Used To Know – Gotye (feat. Kimbra)
To celebrate the Roadshow’s 10th anniversary, each month we are publishing a worksheet for one song from each tour. This song appeared in 2012-2013, and the worksheet was written by first-time contributor Laura Laura Piermartiri from Grottammare (AP).

Over 285 Downloadable worksheets now online
Most of the worksheets have been written by your colleagues – perhaps you have prepared one and want to share it?
