Spot the Note is a favorite activity for teaching note names. Kids write the letter names in the colorful circles or you can play a fun game by asking students to place a treat on the note you call out. Each time students answer correctly, they get to eat their treat! Click here to print Spot the Note and make note name practice fun for your students.
Beginner piano students will learn everything faster if you spend some time right at the beginning to help them learn the names of the piano keys. And the best way to “drill” students is with fun games! In this Jumbo Ice Cream Cone game, students get an ice cream cone and earn scoops to go on top by correctly identifying the piano keys. Kids get more and more excited as their ice cream cone grows taller and taller. Click here for Jumbo Ice Cream Cone–a fun free game to use in your piano lessons.
Asking students to record their practice efforts is by far one of the best ways to get kids to practice the piano more. This chart is awesome because students can record their practicing right next to their assignments. This gives you as a teacher a very precise picture of what is happening at home so that you can give your students feedback and help them improve at a faster rate.
