This Melody Envelope Game-Volume B music game is perfect for developing aural skills and inner hearing. It works with six of the earliest pitches your instrumental students will learn. These are perfect music activities for developing ear training that your beginning band classes will enjoy.
This game is also included in the Music Theory Games Bundle Level 2 as well as the Music Theory Games BIG BUNDLE which includes both level 1 and level 2 theory games.
Students will practice:
- aural listening skills
- inner hearing
- identifying note names and relating them to pitches
- an “early in the year” game before students are playing
- a review game after students have learned all included pitches
If you’re not familiar with this game, it’s very simple to teach. Each student gets an envelope with 8 melody cards. Teacher plays (or note names) one of the 8 melodies. Students individually identify which card was performed. Once all students have found the correct card, the class names, sings or plays the melody together. This is a wonderful way to approach inner hearing in a different way from the normal – see it, then play it. In this game, the students hear it, then see it, then play it.
DETAILED instructions are included along with a number of ways to SIMPLIFY the game and a number of ways to make it more CHALLENGING.
Volume B contains a set of melody cards containing 5 of the most common early notes for the following instruments. They are concert Bb, C, D, Eb, F, G.
♫ Flute – Oboe - Bells
♫ Clarinet – Bass Clarinet - Trumpet (optional F. Horn – Baritone T.C.)
♫ Saxophone (optional T. Sax)

EACH SET includes 8 practice flashcards with the 8 melodies (about 3’ x 10” each) to practice the melodies before the game as well as the 8 small melody cards (about 1”x3” each) to cut into student sets. There are stars in the upper right hand corner of every card to help students know which way they should lay out the cards.
