The success of learning piano depends on a few factors. One of them is very clear and simple, but taking quite a long time until succession. It is a reading of music notation, especially with the children. Their brain is curious and learning fast. From the other side, the mastering of anything has to be in a game like an environment.
Here is the great way to learn note and to practice note recognition and application of knowledge in the bass and treble clefs. SAM – A Sorcerer, an Apprentice, and a Magician – 3 minutes fun game for any age!
Why not regular worksheet?
Very common age of beginner piano student is 5-6 years old. In this age, children just begin getting reading skills and their memory capacity is not that big to hold long instruction. The amount of information on one page of worksheet could be frustrated. Using one card in a time help children to concentrate on the smaller amount of information and process it faster. From the other side, which precedes the game helps children to go to an imaginative place, learn and have fun!
The game contains One game board, 60 True and False cards in bass clef, 60 True and False cards in treble clef. Cards fill up 8 pages, the size of the cards is quite small.

- Give the student deck of cards and ask to help the magician organize them between the true and false on the game board. For more fun try timing the student to see how fast they can bring up the knowledge and apply it.
