Mad Music Minute = NOTE NAME Practice

Besides MMM, you can also use the printed flash cards Mrs. Petty hands out or work on the flash card websites linked above.

 

MAD MUSIC MINUTE---Go to http://www.secondrunnerup.com/mmm2/ to make your own.

---Choose your clef (Treble, Alto or Bass)

---Choose your range (ranges listed below)

---Click on "Row" near the top right

---Click on each row, left column, to generate the quantity of questions (I recommend that you click them all) The "0" for flats and sharp will already be chosen. If you want to practice with 1 or 2 sharps or flats, then click those as well.

---Then click "Generate Worksheet" near the left side.

---You can then print or trash that one and try again. Make as many as you would like.

 

Frequent problem to fix: If you click on Generate Worksheet and it comes out blank, you probably need to select the "0" for how many sharps and flats you want. It is the blue "0" near the bottom right side of the home page.
