New Year's Game

[This game has been updated and revised. Please click here for the updated version.]

Have you ever had a student return from the holidays and sadly inform you that they had been out-of-town and didn’t open their books the entire time?  I usually turn it into something funny, like, “I can’t believe that they don’t allow you to bring pianos on airplanes anymore!” or something equally silly. One student thought I was serious and wanted to know if we could do that in the old days. That might have been the same student who thought I rode a horse and buggy to piano lessons.

If your student is a beginner, pull out this New Year’s game, and after this brief review of music symbols and vocabulary, you can get back to work at the piano!

    Thank you for sharing all your board games. My students love them. Suggestions for the new year hat game……have different sets of colored circles for different levels?
    Happy New Year!

        Cool! I could combine the pieces on the same board. Thanks. : )

    Susan, I love what you do! Thank-you for opening the world of games for off-the-bench learning. I have a suggestion for you: In your board game, could you add a page in which the instructions for the games are all written out. This could become the back side of the game board, or a board on its own. I have been cutting and pasting your game instructions (because Memory is a thing of the past at my age!) and printing, but I know you could do a nicer job. A thought. Happy New Year!

      Linnea, thank you for the suggestion. I’m not sure I can go back and do all my old stuff, however!
