Music Memory Game
Use two sets of cards. Place them face down in a grid. Working in pairs, students take turns overturning two cards to see if they get a matching pair. Whether they match or not, they have to name the notes. If they get a matching pair, they take the cards and have another turn. Reinforces memory work too!
Using a designated instrument (recorder, xylophone, Boomwhacker, etc), students randomly choose 3 cards and play them. You may have to limit the notes depending on the instrument.
Organize the cards in sequence to make scales such as major or pentatonic. Also a great way to demonstrate modes. Print out cards with accidentals to have a fully chromatic set, allowing for more versatility. A good tool for assessment.
Students can use cards to either create a short melody to then play, or to notate a melody which they have already created. Rhythmic values wouldn’t be represented, unless you print note cards with rhythmic values or use a separate rhythm card set to place alongside the note cards. Have multiple sets available and perhaps limit the choice of notes.
