I’m excited to announce the supplemental learning content I’ve created for Piano on Quizlet! I have created 43 sets so far and will be continuing to add more content for piano and also will create sets to supplement other instrument learning.

In case you are not familiar with Quizlet, it is a flashcard platform online and through mobile apps for students to learn and study information. It has study sets on all kinds of subjects for teachers and students to use.

Teachers can create ‘classes’ on Quizlet where they put ‘study sets’ for the students in their class to use. For each study set that a teacher creates, Quizlet plugs the information (terms, definitions, images and audio) into flash cards and games that students can use to learn and drill.

Students can start with untimed multiple choice ‘tests’, ‘write’ or ‘flash cards’ to learn information and then move on to timed games, like ‘match’ or ‘gravity’ (‘gravity’ is only on the computer version) to get information lightening fast. Complete mastery of note-recognition and other musical information is what allows musicians to read and play new music in real time. This is a fun tool that pairs with Treblemakers Piano Method Books and other curriculum to strengthen learning. I’ve always liked using flash cards in my lesson plans and this is even better.

I’ve created sets using the same learning strategy used in my teaching and method books.

  1. Introduce small subset of information. (3-4 things)
  2. Drill and use till mastered.
  3. Introduce another small subset.
  4. Drill and use till mastered.
  5. Combine sets.
  6. Drill and use combined set.
  7. REPEAT!

I’ve included the free link below for anyone to join and use my class. This can help you track progress, know what information is mastered and what needs more attention. Students can also compete against themselves and others in my class for fastest times.
