5FPs & Scales - Patterns of Black & White Keys
» 54.4 KiB - 41,255 hits - 19 February 2013
This set of worksheets is designed to help students as they learn to master their 5-finger patterns (aka pentascales) and scale. Each 5FP/scale has a series of boxes behind it, representing the notes of the 5FP/scale. The student's job is the fill in the boxes that would be black keys on the piano. The goal is for the student to visually memorize the pattern of black and white keys for each 5FP, and this worksheet will help with that. I've made five pages in this pdf: (1) Major 5FPs, in the order of the Circle of 5ths; (2) Major 5FPs, in the order of the scale (C up through B); (3) Minor 5FPs, in the order of the Circle of 5ths; (4) Major Scales; (5) Natural Minor Scales.

Identifying Intervals worksheets
» 39.0 KiB - 18,232 hits - 14 November 2013
This series of interval worksheets are designed to help students learn to recognize intervals on sight, without "counting" between the notes. As students complete the worksheets, they should be encouraged to notice the line/space patterns that result with each interval. E.g., 3rds, and 5ths are similar in that they each result in a "line-to-line" (a line note going to another line note) or a "space-to-space." 2nds and 4ths are similar in that they each result in "line-to-space" or "space-to-line."

Identifying Space & Line Notes on the Staff worksheets
» 170.6 KiB - 48,133 hits - 12 April 2012
This worksheet introduces the idea of identifying the space notes on the staff using the mnemonics FACE and All Cows Eat Grass. These are the only two mnemonics I use because it's simply too much for most students to try to keep 4 different mnemonics straight! I have found that it's easier for students to remember just two mnemonics and then learn to jump up a step from the nearest space note to identify a line note.

Rollin' Rhythms worksheet activity
» 523.7 KiB - 19,427 hits - 20 March 2012
I was inspired to create this set of worksheets after I saw a math worksheet on Pinterest that involved rolling the dice, recording what was rolled, and adding up the numbers. Here's a musical version! You'll just need to create a rhythm die using a wooden cube or foam cube. Students are instructed to roll the die, write down what they roll, and build measures. If the note they roll is too big to fit in the measure they are working on, they must re-roll until the right one is rolled. When each line is complete, students can clap and count the rhythm to see how it sounds.
