The Music Deck was developed by music educator Kaila Flexer to help her students have fun while learning to read music.
The Music Deck is similar to a standard deck of cards. The four suits are eighth note, quarter note, half note and whole note in 13 different pitches. Additionally, there are four rest cards.
With the aid of a Helper Sheet, these games can be played with no prior musical knowledge. As identifying pitches of notes and values of notes and rests becomes easier, players will naturally use the Helper Sheet less and less.
With The Music Deck, you can play familiar games like Go Fish, Crazy Eights and Snap!
