This set would be great for a group lesson for primer level piano students, or for use in individual lessons. The set is organised in the order that the concepts appear in Faber & Faber's Piano Adventures Primer, but could easily be adapted to suit any other piano method you use.

*You will need your own game counters to play this game. You can use whatever you have to hand for this such as bead, pencil toppers etc.

How to play:

1. Shuffle cards and place face down in card space.
2. Place game counters on the "start” leaf.
3. Each player draws one card per turn, and moves to the designated space or number of spaces.
4. If a question card is drawn and the player cannot answer the question correctly they stay where they are.
5. If the player lands on a leaf with a bug on it, they get an extra turn.
6. The winner is the first to make it around the tip of the branch and back to the finish leaf.
7. If the cards run out at any point, the used cards should be shuffled and turned back over.

As a bonus I have included an extra page of some basic terminology flashcards! There are 8 cards in this set covering treble clef, bass clef, forte, piano, whole note, dotted half note, half note and quarter note (there is a separate pdf with UK terms if that is what you prefer i.e. crotchet, minum, dotted minum, semibreve).

File Notes

Both UK and US versions of the files are included for ease of printing. You can just delete the ones which do not apply to you.

All UK pages are 190mm x 275mm. This ensure that they will print on all printers, without scaling. You do not need to check "Fit to Page" on your print dialogue box, however, if you have considerably larger print area you may want to try this option.

US file versions are set up to print on letter size. The flashcards are compatible with Avery pre-cut business cards, but can also be printed on regular paper/card and cut apart. There are 2 versions of the US flashcard files, one with dotted cutting lines, and one without.


This purchase is a studio license, you are welcome to print as many copies as you like for use within your own studio. You are not permitted to send, distribute or sell the files to anyone.
