Christmas Quiz 2017

Happy Christmas everyone! Here is this years edition of my Christmas Quiz. As always the quiz is designed to last an hour with going through the answers as well. The quiz consists of five rounds: * By George - Famous people called George * Geography - Red and White flags * MFL - Pairing up animals in English and Dutch * Pictures - Scenes from Christmas films * Music - 90s music The rounds with a time limit on them (all bar music) are designed to move on automatically (after 5 minutes for the majority or 20 seconds per picture). You only need to click to move on when you have read through the instructions of the round. I have included all the required sound files (copyright to their respective owners) just make sure that you place them all in the same folder as the PowerPoint itself for the links to work correctly. Please feel free to leave feedback / suggestions for future rounds / any issues in the comments section and I will address them as quick as possible.

Complete Piano Scales Cards for ABRSM Exams 2017-18 Grades 1 to 8

Complete Piano Scales Cards for ABRSM Exams 2017-18 Grades 1 to 8

This set has cards for every single possible scale combination for the ABRSM piano exams 2017-18, grades 1 to 8. Simply print out the page(s) for your student's grade and give them the sheets. They can then cut out the cards and place them in a pot/jar/bag. When they practise, they can pick them out at random to ensure they are practising all of their scales. For grades with more scales, they can sort them into different pots as they play through them - confident, needs some more practice, needs a lot more practice. They should then pick from the "needs a lot more practice" pot most frequently, until eventually all of the scales are in the "confident" pot. Each card tells the student which scale to play and in what manner it should be played (legato, staccato, which hand(s), which inversion etc) and how many octaves should be played. It is just like having the teacher or examiner giving instructions, and it will ensure students are accustomed to playing each scale on demand. This resource can be used with every single one of your piano students as they progress through the grades. NB: I'm not affiliated with ABRSM in any way.

They should then pick from the "needs a lot more practice" pot most frequently, until eventually all of the scales are in the "confident" pot. Each card tells the student which scale to play, whether it should be tongued or slurred (or, for higher grades, legato-tongued, staccato or slurred) and how many octaves should be played. It is just like having the teacher or examiner giving instructions, and it will ensure students are accustomed to playing each scale on demand.

Sleigh Dash (Christmas musical notation note value game)

Sleigh Dash (Christmas musical notation note value game)

Race to fill Santa's sleigh in this fast-paced musical notation game. Santa has received a lot of questions in the children's Christmas letters this year. If you can help him answer them, he'll be able to collect enough presents to fill his sleigh! Each player draws seven value cards (quavers/eighth notes, crotchets/quarter notes, dotted crotchets/dotted quarter notes, minims/half notes, dotted minims/dotted half notes and semibreves/whole notes) as well as the equivalent rests. The first player to answer Santa's question correctly, using their cards, wins a present. Santa's questions feature filling a bar in 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 time, finding note and rest equivalents, addition and subtraction with musical notes, and balancing a seesaw with equivalent note lengths. Presents are drawn at random - your younger pupils will love seeing what they get. The winner is either the first person to win x number of presents or the person with the most presents after x minutes have elapsed. Sleigh Dash will give your students the practice they need to know their note values inside out.

Ukulele Chord Diagrams (Open only, no bar chords)

Ukulele Chord Diagrams (Open only, no bar chords)

I created this configuration of stickers for ukuleles so that children can learn to understand where they need to place their fingers when playing certain chords. I started with C major (green), F major (blue) and G major (red). From here, there are a lot of songs which can be played using these 3 chords alone (blues songs and most nursery rhymes) but the other chords show combinations of different coloured stickers. The numbers relate to which fingers (on the childs' LEFT hand) which should be pressing down on what string(s) and fret(s).
