When children first begin piano lessons, an extraordinary amount of time is spent teaching them to read notes in Middle C and C position. We use inventive games, fun visual reminders, and cute poems to reinforce early note reading.
And then students get older… and more capable… and we assume they can simply tackle new notes without all of the rigamarole.
As a result, many piano students (who have no problem with notes in Middle C or C position) hit a massive roadblock when learning pieces in Treble C or G position. To make matters worse, kids who hit this roadblock are at an age when they are at a greater risk of quitting piano lessons.
So in today’s post, we’re sharing an action-packed piano teaching game you can use to help older students master note reading in G position.
A Note Reading Ruckus With Fearless Fortissimo
The printable piano game we’re sharing below is inspired by our comic-based piano book series, The Adventures of Fearless Fortissimo. We’ve just released THREE brand new books on Amazon! Find them here.
If you are a fan of the recently-retired Fearless Fortissimo books, then you are going to go bonkers for our completely revamped series with never-before-seen adventures and never-before-heard music.
