Flashcard Frenzy

Flashcard work is so important in regular lessons. Students are often successful at naming a note, but fail to successfully negotiate this at the piano- and can really melt down if the metronome is ticking away. There are lots of ways to drill flashcards, and I thought I'd share some of the ways I do it here.

Flashcard Frenzy Cards are a set of 24 cards that I made for flashcard drills at and away from the piano. I use mnemonics here, so a couple of my cards included word-drills. (Like All Cows Eat Grass or FACE).

(Apologies! My flashcards don't line up perfectly....I'm still new at this.)
