A while back, Rebecca – of the fabulous Piano Teacher’s Retreat blog – solicited ideas for one-minute games to use with students. (Plus, I really like Rebecca now that she has told the world that she thinks I’m a genius… 😀 ) From there, I linked over to another wonderful website that I’d never seen before. Susan Paradis has a bunch of great music worksheets and games available to download. Notably, I saw this Make A Keyboard worksheet and thought it would be fun to use as a timed game for young students. Just cut out the pieces, give the whole set to the student and time them to see how fast they can put the keyboard together in the correct order. I’m looking forward to giving this a try as soon as I resume lessons for the fall!
