Experience is the best teacher.  My children love the “Rainbow Castle” game that I created, but my toddler has her own way of playing it.  She likes to take the playing cards and match them on the keyboard.  She became frustrated that the piano was too small for the cards, but spent a lot of time trying to make it work anyway.  This game was created especially for very young children, including toddlers, although any beginning piano student could benefit.

This activity comes as a bonus with my e-book, Beginning Rhythm.  It uses the same playing cards as “Rainbow Castle”.  Play with treble or bass clef cards, but not both.  Have fun!

About the author 


My name is Tamsyn and I love music. I got my bachelor’s degree in vocal performance from USU. I spent many years teaching private piano lessons until I had children of my own. I have attended several children workshops on how to teach children music. I really like the Kodaly method, but have adapted a lot of different techniques for my own children.
