‘Recital Shakedown!’ | Piano Practice Game

piano party

Help students GET RID of those PESKY performance NERVES – Loosen things up with this FUN PERFORMANCE oriented piano practice game!

A cool performance-centered piano practice game, designed to help students build and develop performance skills.  The engaging artwork makes it feel like a ‘real’ music game.  It includes 50 challenge cards, issuing a multitude of fun ‘performance challenges’.  Tackling these quirky and engaging performance challenges helps students improve their ‘focus skills’ and also strengthens their ability to ignore distractions while playing.  Play it in a group class to help students realise that they are not alone in facing their nerves!  Even better, why not hold a ‘Piano Party’ class as part of your recital preparations?  Of course, you can also print extras as ‘party favours’ and send them home for students to use as a piano practice game!

Game Rules – TWO versions INCLUDED – Make performance fun:

  • Great for a Group Class or ‘Piano Party’!  Printing & set-up instructions, and Game Rules, are all included for this useful little piano practice game. These game-play instructions make it easy to use in your group classes.
  • Play the game in individual lessons!  Use it to create a memorable piano lesson with just teacher and student during lesson time.  A second set of instructions are also included for how to play the game one-on-one. You can even send this motivating piano practice game home with students, for them to have fun with in their mid-week practice sessions!
  • Useful for both In person AND Online lessons!  A great way to have some fun with ‘performance practice’ online.  Use it to help you run an online Zoom ‘performance class’ when face-to-face classes are not possible.

  • Love it!

    A fabulous game, that is easy, inclusive and good for lots of laughs. Good to take the edge off of getting up in front of people to play, whilst secretly doing performance practice. 🙂
