If you want to turn your primer piano students into note readers who just “get it”, then you need to find multiple ways to engage their brains.
Timed tests will improve their fluency. Games will keep them motivated. Sight-reading will teach them to think on the fly.
And then there are Note Reading Sorts. Note Reading Sorts are interactive activities that engage higher-level thinking skills. Piano students don’t just have to name notes, they have to think about notes.
And this thinking, considering, and sorting, commits those notes to memory.
Today we have created 5 Cut And Paste Note Reading Sorts for primer piano students. Your kids will enjoy note reading in Middle C position and your piano parents will enjoy an activity that keeps their kids busy at home for, at least, the amount of time it takes to whip up some dinner 🙂
Note Reading Sorts For Middle C Position
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of developing fluent note readers. Anything piano teachers want to achieve with students begins first with note reading.
Kids who no longer struggle with note reading have time to pay attention to dynamics. Kids who no longer struggle with note reading have time to improve their rhythmic coordination.
Most importantly, kids who no longer struggle with note reading enjoy making music on the piano!
So let’s keep working on those note reading skills! Send your students today’s printables and simply ask them to cut out the notes and then sort them into the labeled categories.
