Use these flash cards with pairs of students. One student shows the flashcard, the other student must name the notes on the card, and then play them. Then they should switch roles. When they get good at reading single cards, put two cards one after the other on a stand, and have the students play the whole sequence.

The cards are graded – they start with open strings, and go on to all the notes of the D major scale in first position.

I print out the cards on the light carton paper used for report covers, available in any office supply store, and cut up the cards with a utility knife or scissors.

These cards are part of my series OpenString Symphony. These are pieces for string ensembles of mixed skilllevels, from open strings to first position all notes. You can see the entireseries at .

These pieces are part of a morecomplete program for teaching strings in classes. You can read the entirefirst-year program in the books Playing Together Student Workbook and PlayingTogether: Teacher's Guide, both available on Amazon:
