Inspired by the Rhythm Magnet Game by Joy on Color in my piano I planned a fun game at our last group lesson to review identifying intervals by ear. This is a skill that seems to come quite naturally to some students, but is a real challenge for others.
I taped 6 posters in different areas of the room including the interval name, song associated with it and a picture to represent it.
Major 2nd - London Bridge
Major 3rd - Oh When the Saints or We'll Bring The World His Truth
Perfect 4th - Here Comes the Bride
Perfect 5th - Star Wars
Major 6th - It Came Upon a Midnight Clear or I Hope They Call Me on a Mission
Perfect 8th (Octave) - Somewhere over the Rainbow or I've Been Dreaming of a True Love's Kiss (from the Disney movie Enchanted). You could also have the students make the posters for additional reinforcement.
Can you think of a fun name for this game?
