Notes on a Keyboard

Age Range: 7 - 11
By: Alissa

This is good for students to learn the basic notes (A,B,C,D,E,F,G)

First, you have to say a letter name and have the student play that note. Repeat as many times as you like and correct / tell the student if they press the wrong note.

The second part is you let the STUDENT be the teacher. All you need to do is let them say a letter name and watch YOU press a note. To make the game more fun, you need to intentionally press the wrong note and have them tell you which one it really is.

Children really enjoy this game. They find that they can do better than you so they have more confidence to play.

Thanks for this, - really important to let students teach you. It totally engages them!
