New: Fun freebies for letter name practice

I’ve been trying to come up with some new fun ways for practicing letter names other than flashcard practice. I think it’s important to be able to name notes away from the piano, and also to be able to play the notes on the piano after naming (to learn correct note placement and octaves). Especially when working with kids, it’s important to keep it fun! I created a couple of fun new worksheets for note name practice and wanted to share them with you all!

Musical Decoder is a note-naming worksheet that spells out different words using the letter name “code”. It turns out that there are actually quite a few words that you can make using just the musical alphabet, and this 1-page worksheet includes some of them. After decoding the words, it’s kind of fun to sit down at the piano and play them and hear what each word sounds like! Could lead to some excellent modern compositions… 🙂

Silly Sentences takes it a step further – students name the notes to decode some silly sentences using [mostly] the musical alphabet. Playing the sentences at the piano creates some crazy but kind of fun melodies!

Both worksheets are available in the ShopFreebies” page as a free download! Hope you enjoy!

Don’t forget to check out the amazing savings in the Shop for the big New Year sale – going on until the end of the month. This is the best time to get the piano camp lesson plans, as they are buy 1 get 1 free!
