- Print your bingo card from the file below, or ask your piano teacher for one.
- Write your name at the top.
- Read all of the ideas on the bingo card. Which ones inspire you the most?
- Start thinking of musical ideas and trying them out on the piano. You may want to use an audio recorder during this part of the process, so you can remember the best ones later.
- Write down the ideas that you like on staff paper (print your own at BlankSheetMusic.net or PrintablePaper.net). Students may also record their final compositions and ask for help writing the music.
- Each piece should be at least 16 measures long. If yours is shorter than this, add another idea or a variation.
- Bring your bingo card and composition(s) to lesson. We'll mark the boxes of the ideas you used and edit your composition as needed.
- See how many pieces you can write and how many bingos you can score by the end of the summer! There may be a reward at the end. :)
