Practice Checklists

Need some help with practice goals? Start with this! Cut out a square, attach it to a piece you are practicing, and check off each box when you accomplish it.

Staff Paper

You may need some blank staff (manuscript) paper at some point, to sketch out a composition, do theory homework, or anything of the sort. I've got your back, so you don't have to go searching around the house for it!

"Count" Dracula.pdf

Here's a fun little theory worksheet for elementary level, for extra practice on counting in 4/4 or 3/4 time. Halloween themed graphics included!

Composition template.pdf

This template is perfect for getting students started on compositions. Included in this template is guidelines on how to use the template, and how to go beyond using it to complete the composition.

Left hand patterns.pdf

These were all of the left hand patterns mentioned in my "Lot's of Fun with Left Hand Patterns" Facebook Live Event on Wednesday, August 5, 2020. I've transposed each to the key of C Major (except for the blues patterns) and demonstrated one example of how they could translate to another harmony.


Here's a piece that can be performed at any level, regardless of what age you are! If you are into comedy, this one is for you. Make your audience roll on the floor laughing because of your excessive acting skills, all just to play a single note on the piano.
