Note Magnet Activities
Make your own magnetic games for your students. Use on our staves from pre-reading to the grand staff. Includes color or black and white, solfege or note names, as well as plain black notes.
Color-Coded Piano Inserts
Six different piano inserts to choose from. Use these inserts behind the piano keys for learning solfege or the letter names of the keys.
Make a musical path, play hopscotch or a modified twister with these fun solfege circles. Print on colored paper to save on ink, laminate, and enjoy a permanent gross-motor activity to get those wiggles out!
Musical Solfege Stairs
Put these solfege triangles on your staircase and watch as children spontaneously sing the scale as they walk up and down your staircase.
There are eleven nursery rhymes in six different formats, including solfege or nursery rhymes, color or black and white, and different keys (primarily C and D major). These melodies feature simple, two-note accompaniments which are great for Orff instruments!
Learn the quarter-note, quarter rest, and eighth notes. Build your own rhythms in our puzzle grids, and learn the rhythm for "Rain, rain, Go Away".
Rainbow Castle Game
Reminiscent of Candy Land, players draw colored notes on the staff and move their pawns to the appropriate note on the piano. What a fun way to familiarize pre-readers with note reading on the staff!
Our Pre-reading exercises focus on So-Mi-La, which make the easiest intervals for our ears to hear- the minor-third, the major-second, and the perfect fourth.
Learn all about the musical opposites of fast and slow, high and low, and loud and soft with our simple games and activities.
Meet Guido d'Arezzo
Guido d'Arezzo was the famous monk who invented music notation and gave us solfege. Learn more about him in this simple Power-Point Presentation, also available as a printable PDF.
Solfege Chains are sight-reading exercises with only capital letters to represent the notes to be sung. M for "Mi", S for "So", and so forth. These exercises are especially fun to sing as a round or as an echo game.
Rainbow Matching Game
Match color-coded cards onto our giant colored piano. This activity is especially good for very young learners who are also learning their colors.

The Solfege Train taught me more about music theory than 10 years of piano lessons.
"I love The Solfege Train, which I bought from Tamsyn a year ago. With this membership, it's available both as a book and printables, if you want to use it screen free, which was important to me when I got it, or as interactive videos, which are the way we're going now.
"Seriously, learning Moveable Do with the Solfege Train taught me more about music theory than 10 years of piano lessons. It teaches ear training and theory, two things I'm seriously weak on, in a very [Early Learning] way (my 2 year old does fine).
"And there's even more stuff I haven't even looked at yet! I'm really excited about it!"
