Tonal Learning Sequence
I introduce rhythm skills approximately in the order listed in this Tonal Learning Sequence document.
The flashcards below should be printed out on 8.5″ x 11″ paper. You can then enlarge them (129%) onto 11″ x 17″ heavy weight paper using a photocopier. After cutting the paper in half, the new and bigger flashcards should be 5.5″ tall.
The square note indicates the location of the tonic. For major scales, this would be do. However, for minor (la-based), you can make the square be la. This also works for modes (dorian mode: square is re, etc.).
One and Two-Line Staves
These cards are designed for young students who may find it easier to understand the concept of line vs. space notes when presented with fewer staff lines.
