What is the Piano Key Spelling Bee Game?
This interactive piano key spelling bee game gives beginning piano students a fun way to review the names of the white piano keys, A, B, C, D, E, F, and G. Spelling words created from the letters of the music alphabet are shown on the piano keys: AGE and CAFE, for example.
Students figure out the correct word, roll the dice, and move forward on the game board. The first student to reach the beehive wins! Your piano students will have tons of fun while becoming more confident in their ability to identify the piano keys.
