NoteNamers are flashcards designed to help piano students memorize both note names and each note’s specific place on the piano using humorous/memorable associations with animals and other common nouns. This free sample of NoteNamers contains six (6) double-sided flashcards teaching five (5) piano notes near Middle C: A3 through E4.
One side of the flashcard shows standard music notation, while the flip side offers piano students a hint with a friendly cartoon animal whose name begins with the corresponding note name.
The idea for NoteNamers began after watching the TEDx Talk titled “How to Become a Memory Master”. In this video, Idriz Zogaj demonstrated how using a “fun, vivid, and animated story” helps our brain make a strong connection, and thus a lasting memory. NoteNamers was developed to empower my piano students who struggle with note memorization and note placement on the piano. In my own piano teaching, I have found these flashcards very helpful when introducing a new note to a young student. I welcome your feedback!
