GAMES FOR THE PIANO

 

Here's great educational tool for children at the piano. Included is a 78 page illustrated book, Play Along Audio CD and numbered and lettered removable stickers.

You should never underestimate the importance of the element of fun in introducing children to the piano.

Here are nine games your child can play with you, or by themselves, turning that great big piano into an educational toy. You can use the Play Along Audio CD, or play the accompaniments included yourself.

First among the fun games are counting games, in which children learn to count and play simple numerical games at the piano. 

Just follow along with the Play Along Audio CD and you'll be playing games right away.

I often use these games when children become tired of working hard at reading music, and need some relief and fun.

You'd be surprised how refreshed children are after a bit of fun, and how ready they are for a little more hard work!

 

Everything your child needs to start having fun at the piano:

GAME # 1

FOURS

| 1 1 1 1 | 2 2 2 2 | 3 3 3 3 | 4 4 4 4 |

| 5 5 5 5 | 6 6 6 6 | 7 7 7 7 | 8 8 8 8 | 9 9 9 9 |

|10 10 10 10 | 11 11 11 11 | 12 12 12 12 |

                  

Here's a list of games included:

We're all playing "fours."1. Game #1 FOURS Play each white key between 1 and 12, four times each. Promotes dexterity, counting skills and coordination. Children love this simple game, playing it with you, or with the Play Along Audio CD.

2. Game #2 THREES Play each white key between 1 and 12, three times each. Promotes dexterity, counting skills and coordination.

3. Game #3 PIRATES WITH TEACHER'S DIRECTIONS Children simply play the keys 5 and then 12, over and over, while a complex dramatic accompaniment plays PIRATE MUSIC. This game promotes concentration and coordination.

4. Game #4 PIRATES WITHOUT TEACHER'S DIRECTIONS Same as GAME #3, but the Teacher's voice has been removed so your child can concentrate on staying exactly with the PIRATE MUSIC.

5. Game #5 HAPPY OR SAD? One of the skills a musician builds is learning to LISTEN to music and discern the qualities: is music happy, or sad? Children love this game, listening to chords, and other elements, and making educated guesses in the manner of a game show.

6. Game #6 WHICH WAY IS UP? Key among the early skills at the piano a child learns is ability to discern left from right, up from down. This game plays various elements and asks the child to decide in which direction the music is moving. In music, there are only two directions, up and down, and at the piano, they are expressed as left (down) and right (up.)

7. Game #7 NAME THAT SONG A pleasant listening game in the manner of a game show. Familiar songs (such as Mary Had A Little Lamb) are presented and the child must guess the title.    

8. Game #8 FOLLOW THE LEADER Think of it as Simple Simon for the piano! The teacher plays certain notes, and the child must answer by matching those notes, playing them on their keyboard. Promotes concentration, listening and completing a given task.

9. Game #9 FOURS WITH BLACK KEYS Really the same as Game #1, but now the child must navigate the geography of the black keys as well. The child plays each key, both black and white, from 1 through 8. Sounds easy, but it takes concentration. When mastered, your child is firmly aware of the sequence of black and white keys on the piano, an essential skill needed to master "flats and sharps," which are the musical symbols used to denote black keys for beginners at the piano.
