How to Make Piano Lessons More Fun… and Delicious

Want to make piano lessons more fun… and delicious? Check out these FREE M&M Challenge worksheets from MakingMusicFun.net.

Learning to play a musical instrument takes a lot of time, a lot of patience, and a lot of repetition. So why not make it fun?

The following worksheets drill note names and piano keyboard key names – and they are worksheets that your students will beg for over and over again. The M&M Challenge note name worksheet is great for students in their first few years of lessons, as it typically takes awhile before they are confident with their note names. You can place the M&M on the staff and ask them to name the note, or call out a note name and ask the student to place the M&M on the correct line or space. Using both strategies will keep things interesting and get kids thinking about music notation in different ways.

The M&M Challenge keyboard ID worksheet is perfect for kids that are just getting started. You can use it to drill the key names, or drill key names and finger numbers by asking students to place the correct finger on the correct piano key. Either way they are rewarded with an M&M for each correct answer.

About ‘Moses and the Ten Commandments’

God spoke the Ten Commandments to Moses in His own voice and wrote it on two tablets of stone by God’s very own finger. God gave these laws to Moses and the people on Mount Sinai. These commandments are the first part of God’s law system, where it summarized the hundreds of laws found in the Old Testament. It offers the basic rules of behavior for spiritual and moral living. One day, Moses destroyed the tablets out of his anger — a symbol of God’s laws being broken in the hearts His people and a reminder that we should always be careful of righteous anger that it does not lead us to sin. God then made Moses create new ones like the ones He had written himself.
