This is a board game 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 Trinity College 2017 Piano syllabus - Grade 4. The sense of daring & challenge is a powerful motivator to accomplish something that would ordinarily seem too hard.
