Teen piano students spend much less time playing with piano games and completing homework pages than their younger peers.
So, it is no surprise that teens struggle with ledger lines. They simply do not engage with note reading in the same way that they did when they were six and seven.
The common struggle with ledger line notes is an important reminder that teens still need off-the-bench note reading activities.
In today’s post, we’re sharing two note reading mazes that you can use to reinforce ledger line note reading with your teen piano students.
Before You Download Today’s Resource…
Struggles with note reading and other fairly simple theory concepts are often the reasons piano students quit.
Imagine a lifetime of music lost because a student can’t do something as simple as read notes on the staff.
To save these students, Andrea and I have developed our piano student workbooks. With simple, daily homework tasks that take very little time to complete, students can become note reading stars and technical exercise experts.
Check out two of our most popular piano student workbooks:
1. Andrea And Trevor Dow’s Timed Note Reading Tests For Piano
“I have personally taught over 10,000 individual lessons from beginners to advanced students and this single resource is a game-changer to help everyone quickly grasp the complexities of staff reading.” ~Amazon Review
2. Andrea And Trevor Dow’s Technical Exercises For Note Reading Success
“This book is a game-changer for piano teachers. It is not just full of technical exercises, but it has carefully sequenced note reading exercises designed to boost students’ confidence in music literacy. Self-motivating check-off pages and bonus activities throughout the book make this not only helpful for teachers but fun for students.” ~Amazon Review
