Piano Adventures Lesson Book Level 1 Unit 3 Assignments and Supplementary Activities

Piano Lesson Plans: Teaching Landmark C's on the Grand Staff

Streamlining my piano lesson assignment plans to online documents including virtual links allows my students easy access to learning videos and song samples all in one place. This post includes specific instructions for pieces in the Piano Adventures Lesson Book 1 but many of the activities could also be used with any method book to introduce the 3 C's on the Grand Staff.  I like to use the names Leila Viss suggests for the different Cs on the grand staff. 


Lesson: Red LB 22 C’s Rock

  • Choose a different color for Bass C, Middle C, Treble C and color them on the grand staff above and in your song.

  • Prepare by placing the correct finger on the Treble and Middle C’s that you play for the first line. 

  • * Can you play with a steady rhythm?

  • Optional Game: TPT Heave Ho Ho or HPN Slapfish C’s 

Lesson: Red LB 23 Mozart’s Five Names

Lesson: Red LB 24 Paper Airplane

Lesson: Red LB 25 The Juggler

  • As you listen to The Juggler, tap the rhythm with the correct hand on the fallboard.  Remember R.H. crossovers on line 3 and 4.

  • *Can you play with a steady beat and bouncy short staccatos?

  • Optional Game: SP Music Staff Battleship (Treble Clef)
