Label the strawberry notes

Strawberry Notes

The TMTA convention was  last week, and I really enjoyed myself. I saw so many old friends and made some new ones.  I talked to many publishing representatives as well as authors of the excellent piano teaching material available to us. I hope that I will find time to review some of the new music resources I learned about.

Today I am posting a worksheet to coordinate with this summer’s ladybug theme. It often takes students several years to learn to identify note names, and a little color on the page is a lot more fun. I like to work on lines and spaces separately at first, so I grouped them together.

A lot of teachers have told me their students are enjoying the “Summer Treat” set of worksheets I posted last year, so please check that out if you are looking for some summer worksheets.

Thank you for all your kind comments. It is really wonderful to be appreciated!

      Thanks for writing, Nancy. What books are you using with your new students? There are so many fine ones on the market, and I even like the old ones!

    Wow, what timing! I’ve been printing some of these ‘Summer Treat’ worksheets for my students to do over the holidays which they’ve been quite excited about! So thanks Susan 🙂

      I love summer themes. I wish I could think of something else for them this summer, but I’m running out of ideas. Suggestions?

        In my studio we have an ice cream challenge. They must earn points to receive a scoop on their ice cream cone. I have an ice cream cone on a poster for every student. Then at the end of summer who ever has at least 4 scoops on their cone is eligible to come to our big ice cream party. We eat ice cream and play music games. My kids love this challenge!

    I just finished a 4 day (8 hours total) piano camp! I used a lot of your worksheets and games and they LOVED it all! Thanks so much for sharing your talents!

      Thanks for letting me know, Lorie! Two hours a day sounds like a good time frame. You can do so much more than in group lessons, I think.

    I just finished playing the Ladybug Game with a student and had come in to quickly check email. What a wonderful and perfect surprise was waiting on me: The Precious Strawberry Note Worksheet!! I am drilling note recognition at every lesson this summer and am using lots of your wonderful worksheets and games. My kids loved the Summer Treat Sheet last week. This week, I sent home Notes in the Fast Lane with the goal of naming all notes on one page in under a minute. We are going to begin our One Minute Club this Fall. I know they’ll be thrilled to get the Strawberry Notes next week.

    Thank you so much for your willingness to share these marvelous teaching tools! I know it must take a lot of time to create all these lovely materials.You are a blessing to me and my students.

      Wow, thanks so much for such nice words. You can’t imagine how happy it makes me that other children can enjoy my material! Thanks for taking the time to write. Susan
