Coloring is a peaceful activity. It gives kids a sense of control when things feel out of control. After all, coloring simply requires kids to stay within the lines.
And, because your piano students are probably feeling a little out of control these days, we thought they may find a little peace with some ear training coloring activities.
If you’re like many piano teachers, you probably begin or end piano lessons with a few minutes of clapbacks for ear training. But, week after week of regular old clapbacks can get a little boring for students (and teachers!)
And that’s where the coloring comes in!
Today’s ear training coloring activities are designed to jazz up piano lesson clapbacks. They can be played during online lessons or offline with the help of a musical parent at home.
Let’s Put Some Color In Our Clapbacks!
When using the activities during online piano lessons you will need a copy of the printables and your piano students will need copies of the printables AND a selection of crayons.
How To Play
When your student is ready to begin, clap a measure of rhythm found inside one of the crayon images on your printable. Next, instruct your student to locate the corresponding rhythm in a crayon image found on her printable. The corresponding crayon image will be labeled with a color name. Have your student use this crayon color to color in the corresponding crayon image.
Continue playing until your student has colored in every crayon on her printable.
