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 scales 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 scales can be fun.
This board is for AMEB Grade 4 Piano Full Syllabus. You may notice that, as the grade level increases, I become a little more wicked in my challenges especially towards the end. ;) As the syllabi become more complex I've also had to combine various elements for some pretty evilicious tasks so that we can get as much experience with each piece of technical work. My students usually roll their eyes, laugh out loud at the task & then knuckle down calling my bluff which is just how I like it! :D
