Do the articulation marks on your piano students’ music sometimes go unnoticed? Have you searched in vain for fun supplementary repertoire that provides extra practice for these important concepts? Well search no more!
Fleas on the Keys was written to give piano teachers an engaging way to reinforce the articulation marks young piano students first encounter (staccato, legato, accent and fermata).
As a bonus, we’ve included 4 full-color posters introducing each articulation mark and the corresponding Fleas on the Keys character. These characters also appear in the first few measures of each piece as a friendly reminder to pay attention to those little marks on the page. Hanging these posters in your studio will help your students to make these connections quickly. We’ve also included an Articulation ANTics themed piano teaching game to continue the learning and the fun!
Fleas on the Keys and other Articulation ANTics is intended for early elementary students (ages 6 to 10).
