How many times do you finish a piano lesson and then think, “Whoops… forgot about ear training.”? You’re not the only one! When piano teachers are pinched for time, ear training is often pushed aside in favor of more visual skills. However, learning to play the piano without also improving listening skills is like sending a superhero on a quest without a cape.
So today we’re making it easy to include ear training in your lessons with a Fearless Fortissimo-themed ear-training game. The active kiddos on your piano bench will get a sensory upgrade to their piano powers with an activity that can be quickly played in the last few minutes of a lesson.
A Superhero Ear-Training Piano Game
In our comic-based piano book series, The Adventures of Fearless Fortissimo, there are many moments of suspense and many more moments of triumph. Needless to say, major and minor tunes play a key role in communicating these moods. So it made perfect sense to create an accompanying piano game that can help your students aurally differentiate between major and minor sounds.
The game below requires nothing but our free printable and a colored pencil. To download it, click here or on the image below and then follow along with the included instructions.
