This is a great game! I used this with my private music students during National Music Week. Everyone used it, even kids who hadn't learned to read much notation yet. They got the concept quickly. I made it go more quickly by telling them ahead of time which column or row the answer would come from, but if that was too easy for them I quit giving them hints. We invited some parents in to play it with us and students and parents competed against each other. Lots of fun! They didn't want to stop playing it! - Jennifer W.
My students love this! - Jillian W.
