More About the Music Spelling Bee Grand Staff Note Reading Game

This grand staff note reading game gives advancing piano students a terrific way to review the treble and bass clef notes of the grand staff, including up to 3 ledger lines above and below the staff.

Six-letter music spelling words created from the letters of the music alphabet are shown on each card: DEEDED,  BEADED, and DECADE, for example.

Students figure out the word, roll the dice, and move forward on the game board. The first student to reach the beehive wins!

Use this grand staff note reading game instead of traditional music notes flash cards to drill treble and bass clef notes in an engaging way.

This game includes 15 music spelling word cards for each of the following to make this game as accessible for all of your students as possible:

  • Game cards without barlines
  • Game cards with black barlines
  • Game cards with gray barlines

Your piano students will have tons of fun in piano lessons while becoming more confident in their ability to identify notes of the grand staff with this interactive kid-approved and teen-approved music activity.

How to Play the Music Spelling Bee Grand Staff Note Reading Game

  1. Print the pages you need onto white card stock and cut out the cards. Laminate if you like. 
  2. Place the Bee Cards on the game board, and place the grand staff cards face down beside the game board. 
  3. Roll the dice to see who goes first, or let your student go first if the two of you are playing during a private lesson. 
  4. Draw a music spelling word card. 
  5. The student will identify the music spelling word that is indicated by the notes on the staff.
    1. The student can either say the letters to figure out the word or write the word onto their score card.
    2. *Pro tip: Laminate the score cards or place them into a plastic page protector so they can be erased and reused throughout the game. 
  6. The student rolls the dice and moves forward on the game board. I usually use a single die to make the game last just a little longer. 
  7. If a student lands on a flower, the student will draw a Bee Card to see what to do (fly ahead to another flower, trade places with another player, go back one space, etc.)
  8. The first person to reach the beehive wins!
  9. Students will enjoy reviewing notes on the grand staff in a fun, hands-on way!
  10. They will feel very accomplished by their ability to figure out the musical spelling words as they play this engaging and interactive treble and bass clef game!
