Piece Cards provide motivation for students to learn and review their pieces. Students earn a card for each piece they complete in the equivalent Repertoire Books.
There are four main ways students can use the Piece cards to practice or review pieces:
Unit Map - When you assign a piece, the student tapes their piece card on the appropriate place on their Unit Map.
Chain - Students earn a Piece Card for each piece they master and tape the Piece Cards they earn into a long chain.
Bowl - Students earn a Piece Card for each piece they pass. These cards can be put in a bowl, and the student draws a card out of the bowl to review during practice at home or at the lesson.
Hide and Seek - Teachers or parents can hide piece cards around the room. The student finds a card and plays that piece.
