Music Flash Cards
Flash cards are a great way to practice and solidify musical knowledge that needs to be rock solid. Note names and musical terms should become second nature to music students, and flash cards can help. Whether used in traditional drills or as part of flashcard races like Around the World, flash cards can provide the repetition necessary to commit music basics to memory.

7 Music Flash Cards Sets for Kids

Flash cards are one of the simplest, most versatile learning tools available. Students can use flash cards on their own, in pairs, or with parents. They can also be incorporated into small group games like memory or large group games like Around the World. And, with digital print flash cards, you can print and laminate one sturdy classroom set, or print a set for every student to practice at home.

In a music class or lesson setting, there are plenty of concepts that lend themselves well to flash cards. We want students to be able to recognize musical symbols, note names, intervals, and note values automatically, and flash card practice is a great way to get there.

Note Name Flash Cards. Whether they are studying piano, an instrument, or just learning to read music, note names are one of the first things students need to master. They can drill note names away from the keyboard with printable note name flashcards, available for treble, bass, and viola clef.You can always start with a limited range of notes and add flashcards as students’ knowledge expands.

Music Symbols and Terms Flash Cards. Beyond note names, there is much to learn in the language of music. This flash card set includes note names, note values, dynamic markings, rests, sharps, flats, and more. This set also includes an answer card for each flash card so that the cards can also be used for a memory or matching game.

Memory Game | Music Terms Lesson Plan

Here’s a game you can make yourself. Cut out a few cards, pick out a few music terms and you’re ready to play.

Objective: Learn Music Terms
Materials: Card Stock, Scissors, Pen
Players: 2-4

Start by cutting out a set of 20 blank cards with scissors or cutting board. Ten of the cards will be for the answers, and ten will be for the definitions. (You can add to the set once the first ten definitions are mastered.) Select the music terms and write the terms and definitions on the cards.

Game Play
Place all 20 cards face down on the table or floor. Each player selects two cards each turn. If they’re a match they keep them, and get a chance to select two more cards. Continue moving in a clockwise direction until all the cards have been matched. The player with the most matches wins the game.
