To help my students become comfortable with starting on any note, with any finger, I created this simple note match card game. This is a great game for elementary students that are just moving away from positional reading, and can even be used with beginning students as soon as they learn to identify all the keys on the piano, even if they aren't reading all of the notes on the staff yet.
How does it work? There are three decks of cards: clefs, finger numbers, and note names. Students draw one card from each deck and place it on the piano rack. Once the last card is placed, students must quickly find the key on the piano and play it with the correct hand and finger. For an extra challenge, ask students to play and identify each key under their fingers once they find the given note.
