As your primer piano students begin reading on the grand staff, it’s helpful to have a varied set of resources you can use to prevent note-reading frustrations before they begin. Children learn in a variety of ways, and therefore having a variety of teaching methods at your disposal is beneficial.
While we often share note reading games that engage your visual learners, with today’s note reading sing-along printable we’re engaging your auditory learners.
Two commonly-confused notes for primer students are Bass Clef B and Treble Clef D. In WunderKeys Primer Book 1, Lesson 6, students practice identifying B vs D by imagining B as a “bunny peeking out of its hole” and D as a “dog digging a hole below the staff”. Today’s sing-along song brings this imagery to life with funny lyrics that will have your students smiling while memorizing these two notes.
Let’s Sing Goodbye To Note Reading Struggles
The “B vs D” printable below can be used along with WunderKeys Primer Book 1, Lesson 6 and repeated until your student gains note-reading confidence. The activity contains sheet music to be played by you (the teacher) and lyrics to be sung by you and your students.
