A few weeks ago, I posted about how I use simple flashcards to begin sight reading with my students on this post. Since then I’ve been working on flashcards with just 2 notes to make beginning sight reading even easier. It’s so important to train their eye movement and hand coordination from the start that I wanted to make a set of flashcards using the landmark notes of Middle C, Treble G, and Bass F.
So today, I’ve finally finished the flashcards and I’m sharing them with you! Here we have steps (2nds) and skips (3rds) with the landmark notes so students can begin to identify one note and practice sight reading even when they are barely learning to read music. I am so excited to use these in my studio with my beginning students. Hope you enjoy them too!
