Hi,

 

I wondered if anyone might know where I could buy a card game to play with my son so we can learn all of the music words like Forte and legato? He is age 9 so it would be great to have a game to play with him to learn the words rather than just asking him to rote learn them. I'd like it to go right up to grade 5 if possible. 

 

Thanks!

It wouldn't be too difficult to make a game of pairs by cutting up cards and making 2 of each word.You could divide it into groups when playing if using them all was overfacing. Maybe you'd get a point for each pair, and a point for knowing its meaning.Maybe such a game already exists.
Or you could make quizzes with the words having missing letters eg - or-e or l-g--o.

Thanks, yes, the difficulty is getting the full list of terms and their meanings. Do you know if the list is available online for the grade 1-5 syllabus?

Aren't they listed at the back of the Eric Taylor theory books?

 

As for games, I'd make cards.  One set with the word, the other with the meanings.  You could play "snap" or "pairs" that kind of thing.

They are, but only a small sub-set of the more common terms from the lists are ever used in exams.

I did think that list was a bit on the long side.  :)
