Dice make everything more fun right? It’s much easier to ‘sell’ something as a game if you have a die for the student to use! There are so many possibilities for using dice like this, but here’s a few to get you started:
- Play all the “blank”s is great for beginning students. Try setting a timer and challenging them to get as many as they can in 60 seconds!
- Find all the “blank”s in a new piece of sheet music. Especially good for sight reading skills!
- Scales! Assuming the student has already done all the white key scales, could be major or minor, arpeggios or contrary motions, whatever you want them to work on.
- Roll it twice and then identify the interval, either at the piano or away from it, depending on the student’s level.
- Download the musical alphabet dice and print it out, on card ideally.
- Cut around the outside.
- Score along the edges of the tabs so they will fold neatly.
- Attach the tabs to the inside of the adjoining square using either glue or double-sided tape (how it goes together will make sense once you start!).
- Enjoy all the possibilities!
