*Music Symbol Sticker Books - Primer Level to Level 2B

eBook (PDF), 9 Pages
Bundle Price: $12.00

Support independent publishing: Buy this e-book on Lulu.

Discounted bundle includes: Primer Level, Level One, Level 2A, and Level 2B

A fun way to encourage your students to learn all the musical concepts introduced by levels. These books correlate with the Piano Adventures series and cover the Primer level, Level 1, 2A & 2B. Each sticker book lists the concepts and symbols introduced by the series level and allows you to "check off" each concept as the student learns it by placing a fun sticker over the box in front. It's a great way to motivate your student to learn the concepts and symbols while also making sure your student has a complete grasp of each one! 

Once you have bought the PDF, you are welcome to make as many copies as needed. I recommend printing them on cardstock and using jump rings to keep them together. As your student moves into a new level, just add the next sticker book to the same jump ring! 

(You can buy these individually below or at a discounted price if bought as a bundle of 4!)  Enjoy!

I love reading about your piano discovery camp for little guys. I think I could do a great camp like this! BUT (Isn't there always a "but"?) I'm a teacher who follows the directions of others very well, but creativity is not my strong suit. Would you consider selling plans for a pre-piano camp? Like now? In time for summer? Big grin.

I'm considering ordering your Road Trip USA to use with my older students. The part about dancing has me a little anxious though....

Sheryl said...

Hi Robbin,

As it turns out, I am currently working on that very camp, getting it ready for sale. Stay tuned! And by the way...the dance steps aren't easy...! Just simplify the steps and remember...you'll still be better than most of the kids!

Anonymous said...

I'm just curious about how much you charge for these camps in order to cover cost of materials and time? It all sounds wonderful!
Thanks! Christine

Sharesa Larsen said...

I bought the meet the composers camp and am looking for the review questions card for day 4. The document says to look on your resource page but I cannot find them. Maybe I am looking for the wrong thing. Are the review cards for rhythm or on the composers? Thanks!

Sheryl said...

Hi Sharesa,
The Resource Section is the last pages of the packet. The last seven pages are the review questions I believe you are referring to. Let me know if this helps. If you're still having trouble, please send me an email - notablemusicstudio@sbcglobal.net.

Sharesa Larsen said...

Thank-you! I had forgotten that I had only printed out the schedule, so here I am blushing! I am super excited to be offering this camp to my students!

Mj Vogel said...

Sheryl, I am looking for your Piano Discovery camp curriculum, as well as your camp curriculum from last summer. Are these for sale? Would you mind letting me know at maryjov@USA.net? Thx!

Juliet said...

Is there any way to view a few sample pages from the World Adventure book? THanks.

Sheryl said...

Sure, Juliet! Send me your email address and I'll forward a couple to you.

Kathleen said...

Are these lessons easy enough for substitute teachers to follow? How much musical knowledge is needed?

Virginia said...

Hi Sheryl,
I am considering buying the musicians island bundle. Could you send me a couple of pages to look at first? Thank you, virginia123@me.com

Studio Zhao said...

I'm hosting 3 weeks of summer camp this year, and am interested in several of your cummer camp curricula bundles. Could you send me some sample pages of

Meet the Composers (especially interested in looking at sample composition techniques)
Mystery on Musician's Island
World Adventure
and maybe Road Trip USA!

to zhaofamilystudio @ gmail . com (remove spaces) ?

Thanks!

Tish said...

Would you send me a sample of Mystery on Musician's island and Marooned please. I'd love to take a peek before deciding on them. Thanks.

Sheryl, I ordered and had your Road Trip camp last summer and it was a blast! Can you email me any updates you mentioned? Also, since it is the Olympics this year, are you planning to publish this camp? I know many of us are interested in it. Thanks so much!

Where can I find the pre piano camp for little guys mentioned above?
