If your students are getting tired of their Level 2 method books then the excitement of Fearless Fortissimo might be just what they need! Many teachers have already started transitioning their action-obsessed students to our comic-based piano books, while using their old method books for the technical exercises and activities.
But truth be told, technical exercises and activities in method books can get pretty boring too. And this is why we’ve started releasing Fearless Fortissimo exercises and activities to accompany our books!
In the past few weeks, we’ve created a note reading game, a rhythm printable, and a back-to-lesson activity, and now today we’re releasing an ear training game. As always, even if you don’t use The Adventures of Fearless Fortissimo books, these activities also work great as standalone resources.
Interval Escape – An Ear Training Activity
Today’s activity works best with piano students who are working at the beginning of a level 2 method book and need reinforcement in aurally recognizing and differentiating between intervals of a 4th, 5th, and 6th. To play the game, download the activity sheet here (or click on the image below), and then follow along with these instructions:
- Sit on the floor with the activity sheet. Keep the activity out of view from your teacher. Place a coin over the green circle.
- Next, listen as your teacher plays an interval on the piano. Move your coin one space to the left if a 4th was played, one space forward if a 5th was played, and one space to the right if a 6th was played.
- Repeat Step 2 until your coin lands on a circle with an ‘X’ (you win the game) or an ‘!’ (you lose the game. If, at any point in the game, your coins comes to rest on a black circle, it is returned to the green circle and play continues.
