I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. There just aren’t enough intermediate music theory games out there. Why should beginners have all the fun?
The ‘Know It!’ game I’m sharing here will fill a gaping hole in your studio. Because it’s about revising all the little “fiddly bits” in music notation. Not only that, but it will get them acting, playing, explaining and naming.
Now that’s value for (no) money.
Have FUN checking up on your students’ knowledge of musical signs and terms with this awesome intermediate music theory game.
How to Play
- Place counters for each player on start.
- Each player takes turns to roll the die and move forward on the board.
- The player then picks up a card and performs the action on the space she moved to. E.g. if she landed on “play it!” and got a fortepiano card she should go to the piano and play loud and then immediately soft.
- If the player can’t complete the action or explain the term, she should sit out the next turn.
- The winner is the first to reach the finish space.
To assemble the ‘Know It!’ game:
- Print out the game board (page 3).
- Print out the game cards (pages 4–7).
- Print the optional backing if desired (page 8).
- Cut the cards apart along the dotted lines.
- Laminate if desired.
- You will also need a die and game counters for each player.

Expression & Articulation Flipped Learning Video
In these videos, I teach students about intermediate level expression and articulation marks. Feel free to send these videos to parents for their kids to watch, use it in group lessons or as part of lab time.
These videos are designed to be clear and concise so that students can watch them – and then get on with some writing work for reinforcement. Saving you time to do fun activities during the lesson time.
