With my Piano Readiness Class, we’ve been learning about staff notation. Last week, each student composed a mini-composition on the piano and then we together notated the piece. We used colorful markers to label the notes (A, B, C, etc) and also wrote in finger numbers, so they can continue playing their compositions at home. They loved the idea of being composers!
This is the sheet paper we used to notate our compositions. Young students tend to draw rather large notes 🙂 , so I left plenty of room between the lines of the staff.
