Here’s a Valentine’s Day game for your piano student lab time. It’s playable with 1 or more students.

The instructions that Susan gives on her site aren’t clear, so I’m make up my own. If you happen to figure out a slightly different twist to things, go for it!

To Win
Students hunt for note values on Valentine’s cards placed around the room. The one with the most cards at the end of the game wins. If you play with just one student, it can be a race against the clock. Set a goal of 3 minutes to identify and return all 9 cards. Then play again during their next lesson, trying to beat the previous time.

Game Play
Cut out rhythm cards and fold like a tent. Place them around the room with the hearts facing the students. Call out a rhythm. The first one to find it and return it to you wins that card. It’s a little like a memory game, but with movement.
