Note stem rules are one of those things that it’s hard to feign enthusiasm for as a teacher. I mean, they’re just…pretty dull right? Dull but necessary.
That is until I created Note Stem Smash. This game is fast-paced, fun and is effective practice for all the note stem rules.
The game is simple – sort of like snap – except players “SMASH!” down their hand on top of any incorrectly drawn notes to gain cards.
In future, I think I might add a very slow metronome to up the pressure even more. 😉 But all in all, I love this game, and so do my students.

What are quick clips?

I certainly don’t claim to be an expert, and I don’t have all the answers. I just know how much seeing real teaching with real students has helped me to grow and improve as a teacher.
