The Note Name Game Title

These quick challenges improve note recognition skills for all music students regardless of instrument, and they’re so fun your students will actually request them! Each challenge advances through 3 levels.

How to Play

  1. Select a challenge below — each square shows the pitches, key, and clef that will be used.
  2. Press play on the track at the top of the page.
  3. Make students attempt to sing the note names as the track moves through all 3 levels. Even if their singing isn’t completely accurate, simply raising and lowering vocal pitch will reinforce corresponding sounds on their instrument.


The game can also be used for sight-reading (depending on instrument range).
