After a lesson, piano students have a lot of information buzzing around in their brains. They learn an entire week’s worth of knowledge in just 30 minutes.

To stop their heads from exploding, teachers must keep their students organized using the simplest means possible.

In today’s post, we’re sharing a Keep It Simple Lesson Assignment Sheet to organize home practice and we are also announcing a new resource that will make daily practice a piece of cake!

music lesson assignment sheet

Let’s Start With Our New Resource

Do you have level 1 piano students who need short, daily technical exercises to keep them progressing and on track?

As students usually do piano homework independently, their at-home tasks must be simple-to-follow, and easy to understand.

And that is why (next week!)  we are launching the second book in our series, A ndrea And Trevor Dow’s Technical Exercises For Note Reading Success.

music lesson assignment sheet

Book 2 in the series contains 280 technical exercises (119 pages!) for level 1 piano students that cover the following:

  • Note reading in C position (review)
  • Note reading in Treble C position
  • Note reading in G position
  • Intervals of a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th
  • Playing with eighth notes
  • Accidentals

This is, quite simply, the book that every level 1 piano student needs for frustration-free, effective, daily home practice.

Be on the lookout for the official release next week!

Do you need technical exercises for your primer piano students? Andrea And Trevor Dow’s Technical Exercises For Note Reading Success, Book 1 is available now on Amazon.

While we have shared many lesson assignment sheets in the past, today’s printable is unique in its simplicity.

Piano Practice Assignment Sheet Roundup

As piano teachers, we spend a lot of time carefully considering what we want our students to practise during the week. And despite today’s digital world, printed piano assignment sheets still seem to reign supreme .

music lesson assignment sheet

There are probably zillions of ways to convey music practice notes to your students, from sticky notes or a notebook to shared google docs and tailored practice apps. But if you prefer using a printed piano practice assignment sheet, is your current format working for you?

Does the design get in your way , or does it make your life easier ?

The content for this article was originally published in 7 different blog posts from July 2014 to August 2016. It was substantially edited and updated in March 2024.

Music Lesson Assignment Sheet Considerations

When choosing a piano assignment sheet to use in your studio, there are a few questions you should ask yourself:

  • Will you use the same sheet for all students, or different formats for different ages ?
  • Do you simply list assignments , or do you provide practice tips as well?
  • Is a lot of color ink OK, or do you prefer something more economical (printer-wise)?
  • Should you be able to type in it , or do you prefer hand-written plans?

Once you know what your ideal music practice assignment sheet includes, it’s time to set about either finding an existing one to meet your needs or designing your own .

Design Your Own Practice Sheets

Today, I’m addicted to using the Vivid Practice app . But over my many years of teaching piano, I created a lot of home practice assignment sheets to meet different needs. Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

For preschoolers or young beginners up to age 7 or so, I like to keep the notes very streamlined . Simple graphics can be fun and engaging, but be careful not to overdo it – if the page is too busy, it can overwhelm these young kiddos.

You can even create a practice sheet to match a method book , like I did with my customised piano assignment sheet to go along with Piano Pronto’s Roadtrip! series .

music lesson assignment sheet

For older kids and tweens, I like to have more space to include practice tips and instructions. Adding a way for students to evaluate their own progress can be beneficial, too.

piano music practice assignment sheet older kids

Speaking of having students evaluate their own progress, I’ve even used a double-sided sheet which encouraged students to think critically about their weekly practice sessions.

piano music practice assignment sheet older kids

While our youngest students have fun with bright colours and pre-teens love their emoticons and comics, teens and adults require something a bit more refined . I’d encourage you to keep piano assignment sheets for this age bracket simple and unspecific .

The New Music Assignment Book

by Lauren Lewandowski | Jul 30, 2020 | Teaching/Practice Tips

This post may contain affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. That means I make a small commission (at no additional cost to you) if you purchase something from an affiliate link.

As a new school year approaches and the pandemic continues, I know many students are in need of something to lift their spirits right now! I created this new Music Assignment Book to include practice goals for students, reference sheets, and even spaces to highlight positive elements from music lessons. Students need this right now!

music lesson assignment sheet

The Music Assignment Book Includes:

1. a beautiful, colorful cover to brighten anyone’s mood.

music lesson assignment sheet

2. Fifty-two weeks of assignment pages with space to make a practice goal for the week

3. a practice log is included with each weekly assignment..

Teachers and set the weekly practice goal as a particular number of days to practice, or set the goal as a total number of minutes for the student to practice during the week.    Use the empty box at the end of the weekly schedule to award students. Younger students may enjoy receiving a sticker if their weekly goal is met. Other ideas include giving students a letter grade or stars based on how their weekly goal was met. For example, the teacher can tell the student they receive 3 stars if the goal was met, 1-2 stars if the goal was partially met, or 0 stars if there was no practice. If teaching online lessons, students may write down their own assignment and discuss their practice with teachers the following week. Students can then grade their own practice!

music assignment book

4. An appendix with:

  • Common musical terms and tempo markings (Great reference for online lessons)
  • Rhythm charts with note and rest values for simple and complex meter
  • Students can record composers they learn within the four musical time periods
  • Space to notate favorite pieces and special achievements (Students really need to highlight anything positive right now!)
  • Blank staff paper
  • Blank paper for notes

CSV File for Expressive Movement Videos

music lesson assignment sheet

Would you like to have another fun musical assignment you can use both in your lessons and to assign for at-home practice, especially for your littles? Expressive movement videos might be a perfect addition to your teaching mix.

Expressive movement takes from philosophies like Dalcroze and gets students moving to music in a way that reflects the patterns, form, and expressive quality of the music.

I first shared about these videos in a full blog post in 2022, which includes a compilation of  15 videos I found on YouTube.

Expressive Movement Videos for Preschool Lessons and Group Classes

Today, I’m expanding on that post to bring you a free downloadable resource to help you assign these videos to students during the week.

This file will be most useful for those who are using a digital practice app that will allow you to bulk-load assignments using CSV files . Don’t worry, though; even if you don’t use an online app, you could still use this spreadsheet to copy and paste text to create your own assignments.

Group Class Lesson Planning Made Easy

music lesson assignment sheet

Ever since I started teaching piano full-time just over ten years ago, group classes have always been part of my studio offerings in one way or another.

While we’re not necessarily going to cover the variety of group class format options in this post ( check out episode 3 of The Piano Pantry Podcast for that ), I do want to share an overall group class lesson plan format that has consistently proven successful for all of my group classes no matter the level.

In this post, I’ll be referring to the style of a group class that is more of an occasional enrichment class, not a weekly “group piano lesson.”

Each class generally includes five key areas :

  • Student gathering/entrance
  • Performances (and directed active listening)
  • Audiation Activities (ear-training)
  • Ensemble Work (sightreading)
  • Music Theory Games

In this post, we’ll discuss why each area is important and share some of my favorite go-to resources.

Friday Finds #202 Planning for a New Semester

Friday Finds January Blog Post

The beginning of a new semester always seems to bring with it a little extra work. This is the time many teachers sit down and consider what’s coming up in the weeks and months ahead for each individual student.

There may be students who are preparing for a competition or non-competitive festival, students preparing a senior recital, or students getting started playing in their church’s worship band or accompanying congregational singing.

I tell myself ahead of time to not worry about getting much else done that first week of the semester as most of my time outside of lessons will be dedicated to student planning.

Here are some resources to help you with your planning plus a few other end-of-week goodies.

A Simple (and Free) Video Supplement to Support Your Online Teaching

music lesson assignment sheet

Are you looking for a few extra (but simple) tools to help you with your new journey into online teaching?

Here’s one you may not have even considered!

A free compilation of 48 of the best music-theory videos from all over the web is available here on Piano Pantry.

How can this video series help make your life easier over the coming weeks?

The videos have been leveled into four sets based on the rough/general order in which concepts are introduced in most piano methods.

You can quickly and easily access videos that help reinforce new concepts your students may be learning. Here are a few examples of videos in each set:

  • Key names and the music alphabet
  • How to draw the treble and bass clef
  • Landmark notes
  • Skips alphabet on the staff
  • Sharps, flats, and naturals
  • How to build major and minor triads
  • AB and ABA Form
  • Chord inversions
  • Circle of fifths
  • Scale degree names
  • Augmented intervals
  • Double sharps and flats

Before, during, or after your online lesson, grab the link and text or email it to students/parents. (If you use a program such as Tonara , simply attach a link to the video in a theory lesson assignment. Easy!)

Should these videos replace a lesson? No!

Are they an easy and fun way to provide additional e-learning to your students? Yes!

Access the video series here.

Here’s a screenshot showing a few videos that are included in the series:

December Fun: Christmas Games and Activities for Your Studio

music lesson assignment sheet

Are you looking for ideas on fun “off-bench” activities to use in this Christmas season? Look no further! Today, I’m going to share some of my favorite games and resources that I return to year after year, along with tips for each one.

First, let me briefly share how I store my holiday games. We have to stay organized, right?

Storing Games (Both Hard-Copy and Digital)

music lesson assignment sheet

(P.S. The A4 size is nice because if you laminate a letter size sheet, the lamination makes it larger.)

It’s not a cheap way to store games as they’re almost $1 apiece, so I’m currently only storing my holiday-themed games in these. The rest of my games are stored in hanging files in a file drawer. (I’ll write a post on that another day!)

The digital files are stored in my cloud file manager.

music lesson assignment sheet

From there, I name files for what they are. This allows me to see how many games, for example, I have, how many worksheets, etc.

music lesson assignment sheet

Favorite Christmas-Themed Activities

In no particular order…

Holiday Rhythm Cups from Wendy Stevens at Compose Create.

This is a great way to have fun with rhythm in a unique and collaborative way. The set includes three songs in three levels: Deck the Halls, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, and Joy to the World.

Check out a clip of my students having fun with “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”

12 Ways to Turn a Potentially Frustrating Lesson into a Musical Opportunity

music lesson assignment sheet

Awhile back I wrote an article for Alfred Music Blog called Learning Music in a Quick-Fix Society: 7 Tips to Foster Music for Life .  In the article, I share seven ways we can help create an environment that fosters the mindset that learning music is more than just a short-term activity.

One of those seven items was that, as teachers, we shouldn’t feel frustrated when students come to lessons either without their books or having made little progress. (Of course, if it’s an ongoing issue, that another story.)

It can be very easy to get irritated at students and in turn, have the lesson take on a sour note and be a negative experience. On the other hand, if we keep in mind that life happens and music lessons are an ongoing commitment, we can look at it as an opportunity rather than a failure.

Here are 12 ways we can turn a potentially negative, frustrating lesson into a positive musical experience. You don’t even have to pick just one! Set a timer and tell the student every 5 minutes you’re going to switch activities!

Manipulatives and Piano Games for Private and Group Lessons

music lesson assignment sheet

How many manipulatives, piano games, and other resources do you have in your music studio? You probably don’t even have to count to know the answer. A lot!  Am I right?

Keeping track of all our teaching resources can be a daunting task. Lesson planning for private and group music classes can be enough work in itself without having to continuously recall and rehash all the different manipulatives and games we have each time we plan.

After finding myself physically walking back and forth regularly to my game files, flashcard box, and such, I decided it was time to put together a master list of every activity or manipulative I had or could use to teach a concept .

It can be very easy to lose track of what we already have. Having a document like this has allowed me to not only have an easy place to reference what activities I could utilize at any given time, but it was an awesome snapshot and inventory of what I owned.

Keeping a master list is also a great place to keep teaching ideas that may not necessarily have physical items to accompany the activity.

I thought you might find this document useful as well.

The Master List

Since it is a document that I update on a regular basis, I decided to simply share the public link to a Google Doc. Keep in mind that it’s a working document so it’s possible I will add to, edit, and even remove items as time goes by.

There are three ways you could utilize this document

  • If you want to keep the document as is and not risk being at the mercy of my future edits, you could download it.
  • If you want to always see the updated version, I would recommend bookmarking the link in your browser. This way, you simply click on the link, and you always see the most updated version.
  • If you wanted to create your own list, you could even copy and paste it into your own document to get you started and create your own version with the materials you have!

May this document help you add a little more sanity to your lesson planning and studio organizational life. 🙂

A Great Game for Reviewing Major Chords and 5-Finger Patterns

Don’t you just love it when you come up with an activity or game that turns out to be a real winner, making you wish you had thought of it sooner? I had one of those moments recently when reviewing major chords and 5-finger patterns and wanted to share the activity with you.

I was looking for a fun way to review all the 5-finger patterns and chords in one sitting in preparation for a festival in which a few students will participate.

Most of the TCW card games, though, are not made for students just learning or even in the early-mid stages of mastering any particular concepts. They really have to know their stuff to play most of the games. I’ve tried a lot of their games with students who didn’t know the information like the back of their hand, and it makes the game a lot harder and not nearly as much fun if they have to sit there for a minute to figure out the answer.

Don’t get me wrong; they are high-quality, wonderful games (I own every card deck in the series); they’re just more helpful once the student really knows what they’re doing. The games really help students learn to think faster about concepts they already know and understand well.

Just because particular games are made to be played one way doesn’t mean we can’t utilize them in another, so that’s what I did!

Lesson Planning: A king-size master spreadsheet

music lesson assignment sheet

When I started teaching piano full time, my biggest challenge was finding a method for lesson planning and tracking student progress and materials.

Eventually, as I started using Evernote more, the latter problem of tracking student progress and materials was quickly resolved. (See Evernote Part 1: Studio Management ).

Lesson planning, however, took a lot of trial and error – as I think it does for many of us and is something that continues to evolve and change.

One thing I’ve learned about myself is I’m a very visual person. I don’t do well simply making a note or two here or there for items I need to remember for students’ next lesson. I need to see the big picture.

Finally, in 2014 I was inspired by an article in the September/October 2014 issue of Clavier Companion written by Arlene Steffen, Stephen Hughes, and Craig Sale called “Lesson Plans: A teaching essential?”

Thanks to their detailed article, my  king-sized spreadsheet was born. 

Because a spreadsheet like this will be completely customized to your teaching style (and studio calendar), it doesn’t do me any good to give you a copy of mine. So, in this post, not only do I walk you through the details of what I include, but I’ve also created a video showing you how to create your version, including tips and tricks for using Excel like a pro!

Lesson Assignment Sheets

The assignment sheets for piano lessons plays a vital role in helping the student stay on top of their practice.  Well, that is if the student looks at the assignment sheet.  First as a student and now as a teacher, I  have seen many different methods used successfully.

The most basic method is to write the date at the top of the pages that are assigned.  Now this works well if the student is completing their pieces every week and if they remember what the date of their lesson was.  Overall, I find that this method leaves alot to be desired.

A slightly more advanced way is to use a small notebook and just to write Lesson, Theory, Performance, Practice and notate the page numbers out to the side.  This gives the student a check list to work off of.  There also isn’t very much room for additional notes and writing.

The past few years, I have been giving my students spiral notebooks with college rule paper.  Now this method definately worked well for me.  There was lots of room to write extra notes and to keep a practice record.  I did find that one of the drawbacks was that I didn’t always write the assignments in the same order.  If the theory somehow got added at the end of the page instead of after technique, it almost always was forgotten.  This was a good method and didn’t create any extra work for me as a teacher, but I felt that I could be more organized.

This year all of my students have been given a 3-ring binder.  When the student opens the binder the first thing they see is that week’s assignment sheet.  Every week I print out each day’s sheets with the correct date and the updated music history and listening assignments.  Below you can look at an example of this sheet:

Assignment Sheet- word version

This form seems to be working really well.  All the assignments are in the same place and there is plenty of room left for extra notes and reminders.  Also, I love to give handouts that are helpful to the students.  Some weeks it is supplemental theory sheets and others it can be music history information. By having a 3-ring binder handy, those papers don’t end up crumpled in the bottom of the student’s music bag.  It is also a nice place to keep sheet music so that it doesn’t get wrinkled. 

Over all I am very happy with the new assignment sheets and the 3 ring binder method.

Summer Fun Piano Assignment Sheets!

summerdesigns2016

“Bees’ll buzz, kids’ll blow dandelion fuzz And I’ll be doing whatever snow does In summer…!!”

Only a few more weeks before summer vacations start! Are you getting ready for summer piano lessons in your studio?

I’ve been working on some fun Summer Projects for my students: organizing my digital sheet music library for Summer Library Lending , and next week we’ll start our Summer Song List . (More details about that soon!)

… and of course, I made some new summer assignment sheets!

This year I decided to make 9 new sheets . Each sheet includes:

butterfly

  • A “Reminder” note section for important reminders
  • Space to write assignments
  • 4 octave keyboard
  • Blank music staff
  • Fun images to color so students can keep track of “Practice Days”
