By the time your piano students have reached the end of a Level 2 method book, they have typically mastered note reading on the grand staff and the basics of rhythm. At this point, it becomes time to focus on their ability to play in a variety of key signatures.
While this transition can be exciting for some piano students, many see key signatures as a frustrating stumbling block on their musical journey.
But, with resources like our book WunderKeys Intermediate Pop Studies For Piano 1 and today’s key signature board game, more and more students are discovering that key signatures are fun, not frustrating! So, grab the game below and have a blast reviewing key signatures with your teens.
