Product Description
This is a boardgame that I have created in my studio for my piano students to learn their scales. Play the game in the traditional way that we've always played Snakes & Ladders but follow the directions on each square that you land on. You may use 1 or 2 dice. I've found that 1 dice gives more scales practice but 2 dice gives a fast-track game to play during a typical 30 minute piano lesson. We typically use fun small erasers as counters but you can use anything. When I play it with my students I use that opportunity to:
1/ Model how the tasks are meant to be played
2/ Lightly challenge the student or 'up the ante'
3/ Ham it up during the lesson to encourage the concept that learning can be fun.
This game is completely new! It's for beginners (pre-preliminary grade) who are just starting to learn about different 5 finger positions. This game is using the white note 5 finger positions - C major, G major, A minor & D minor. I've found it to be a fun introduction to the sounds of major & minor while getting little fingers to start their journey of working individually. My student gave me a 9/10 for it yesterday! The 3rd time he got eaten by the same snake he nearly cried laughing! It was so funny!
