Valentine Note Scramble for Basic Keyboard Notes and Middle C Position

I feel like 2012 just started a few days ago, and yet it's almost February! Where does the time go? In anticipation of February and Valentine's Day, I've created a few worksheets to help students review basic note names.

Susan Paradis has an excellent worksheet on her website that has notes from Bass C to Treble C, but I wanted something a bit more basic for my earliest beginners, so I created some worksheets that could be used with both pre-readers and beginning readers.

The first sheet is for beginner students and drills basic notes on the keyboard:

The second sheet drills the notes in the Middle C Position, for students who are reading on the staff:

These worksheets are available under the printables tab- look for the worksheets section and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the list. Let me know how you use these during lessons- I'd love to hear from you :)


  1. These worksheets look great. I am going to try them out in the Little Musician classes. You have some great ideas here that I want to look through! I have followed your blog on google connect. Thanks,

  2. Hi Tonya,

    Thanks so much for your comment. I enjoyed checking out your blog as well. Let me know how your students like the worksheets, and if you have any ideas for improvements/additional worksheets. :)


  3. Hi Tonya,

    Thank you for worksheets! I've been on the hunt for some fun Valentine's Day activities I could do with my students these next couple of weeks. I also checked out Susan Paradis' worksheets. Like you said, she has some great ones but they are a little more advanced (only 1 of my students would be able to complete it). I appreciate the simplicity of yours and it is definitely something I could use with my beginner students.

    I like the chocolate box theme too! Maybe I will have some heart-shaped chocolates as a reward for getting them all correct!

    Look for my blog post within the next week where I will be compiling a list of different Valentine's day activities. I will definitely be linking to yours.

    Thank you for sharing!

  4. Monique,

    Thanks so much for your comment- I'm glad these worksheets were just right for your students! And the suggestion about the chocolates is a great idea!

    I'm looking forward to seeing your list of Valentine's activities- I'm in the midst of pulling some together for lessons next week.
