Hi all, I am planning a piano party for young children aged 5-11. I want to serve a piano key cake, and instead of a present each child is to bring a musical piece that they are working on and play it. We are going to have food and games after this - does anybody have any musical game ideas? I was thinking of passing the beat games, music trivia games, Orff improvisation/body percussion games. Any other ideas?

If you have a smart phone, you can download a game called Music Flash Class. It has a great "hot potato" game setting that I have played in classes with students as young as 7 and as old as 24! Seriously, they all had fun playing. I couldn't believe how the college students participated, but the kids were hilarious. So much giggling and helping each other learn at the same time.

Hi Nannerl Mozart! Sounds like fun smile I'd love to see how you make a piano key cake!

I just did a piano party at my studio last Saturday afternoon with a "Happy Birthday Bach" theme for around the same age group as you. We played "traditional" birthday party games, but each had a twist that allowed them to learn all about Bach and included some fun music instruction. They each played a piece for each other, learned how to give constructive feedback on a performance and basically had an absolute blast with the games and even a little craft. It lasted 1.5 and the kids were ticked to have to leave at the end of it! I know they all left having learned something.

The entire plan/printables for the "Happy Birthday Bach" piano party is on my blog - more info is here if you're interested. http://www.teachpianotoday.com/2012...ith-this-fantastic-group-piano-resource/

You could use KitKat bars for the black keys on the cake (although they'd be brown). smile

Sounds like fun! My friend Joy has a lot of resources on piano games; Susan also has a bunch of piano resources.

It really depends on how old the kids are and what type of musical background they have. smile

Fun! What a great idea. I just watched it on youtube. I don't have a smart phone so I will either borrow hubby's or figure out a way to play the game with another type of timer. Thanks!
