Do you have a beginning Beethoven or budding Brahms at your house? Get him started right with the free printable musical note flashcards I’m sharing today.
Our two children who most loved to play the piano moved off to dental school last year, and we suddenly realized that if we wanted our home to remain filled with music, then we needed to get their younger siblings into piano lessons ASAP.
That we did, and we are blessed to have found a wonderfully encouraging and enthusiastic teacher. Not only does she teach the children we hired her to teach, but after noting the eager intensity with which our little 5-year-old observed their lessons, she has started working with him, as well.
And he is loving every minute of it. Even the theory. That’s because she makes it a lot of fun with games like this.
Piano Key Flashcards
You can print these Piano Key Flashcards double-sided and cut them apart to use as flashcards. Or print them single-sided on two pieces of white cardstock, cut them out, and spread facedown on the table or floor to use as a memory game. If you have as many piano students as I’ve had, you may even want to laminate them for durability.
Musical Note Flashcards
Once your little Mozart can recognize and name all the piano keys, you should do the same thing with these Musical Note Flashcards. At the suggestion of one of my readers, I’ve expanded the original set now to include bass clef notes, as well.
Per the suggestion of one of my readers, this set has now been expanded to include four full octaves, from the C below the bass clef to the C above the treble clef. Just click on either image to download them all.
If you really want to challenge your child, mix the piano key flashcards and musical note flashcards together, then play “Go Fish” or “Concentration” by pairing each musical note with it’s matching key. Enjoy!
