When you tap into the imagination of your piano students, you unleash a powerful learning tool. Play-based learning is not only motivating, but it’s also effective. As you teach through play you are helping your piano students to make memorable connections that result in a deeper, lasting understanding of important piano concepts.
In today’s post we’re previewing an imaginative, game-based piano book that will get your elementary-level piano students pumped about sight-reading.
Superhero Sight-Reading For Elementary Students
There’s a music thief on the loose, and he’s wreaking havoc in cities around the globe! The International ScoreSafe Organization has issued an appeal for assistance and placed all musicians on high alert.
Turn your elementary-level piano students into sight-reading superheroes with April’s PianoBookClub book of the month from Teach Piano Today… My Sight-Reading Superpower. This month’s book transforms sight-reading into an interactive, game-based experience as your students sight-read their way through an urban adventure in major cities of the world.
Designed to focus on sight-reading skills in C position, My Sight-Reading Superpower provides the activities and music you need to raise your students’ sight-reading abilities to heroic standards. This book contains 7 sight-reading pieces, each with a strong focus on note-reading, rhythm, articulation, and dynamic accuracy. Each piece is preceded by an exciting title page that turns sight-reading practice into a game…
Practicing one measure at a time in a “create your own arrangement”, roll-the-dice game, your students will improve their ability to read notes, rhythm and articulation at sight, making it simple for them to “flip the page” and sight-read the accompanying piece. By employing this scaffolding technique you’re giving your students the skills and the confidence they need to become proficient sight-readers from an early age.
“Excellent book – I’ve got two young boy students who are already enjoying this resource! They didn’t even mind the sight-reading as they were engrossed in the super-hero/villain excitement! Lol” ~ Teresa
