I picked up the Piano Teacher's Resource Kit a few months ago. For years, I've been using some of Alfred Music's reproducible sheets, but needed some new teaching materials. When my music students go away on vacation, I usually give them "airplane homework" to do while they are away. I am always on the look out for music crossword puzzles, word searches, music sudoku and composer reading and comprehension. The Piano Teacher's Resource Kit is handy for these situations (along for those who need remedial work in a particular area, such as rhythm).
It contains 88 pages of reproducible worksheets, cheat sheets and music games. There are five levels of difficulty.
For us music teachers, there is a handy answer key in the back. I love how the pages are perforated so we can take them out and photocopy them in batches. However, that creates another challenge - how to store theme without getting them mixed up, but that's a challenge for another day.
The Keynote Writer has been a handy cheat sheet for my students struggling with keyboard geography.
It's available at your local music store as well as Sheet Music Plus (below):
