Music Note Name Identification Speed Test -

 Note Naming Speed Test - (20 Notes)

This is a simpler  version of the note naming speed test on the grand staff with only 20 notes presented.  This test is great for beginners who have just started learning to read notes.  For piano students, it uses only a C position in the right hand (from Middle C to G in the treble clef).  For the left hand, it uses one octave of notes from low C to middle C in the bass clef. 

Can you name 20 musical notes on the grand staff in 1 minute?  If not, how many notes can you name in a minute?  This worksheet will test how quickly music students can identify and name notes.  Use it in combination with the other speed tests to increase your note reading ability.  Try it weekly and see if your time improves!

Another music flash card recommendation: Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory: Note Naming Flash Cards

Need help with note reading?  I think that the best way to improve note reading skills is through flash cards.  It helps speed up your recognition of notes and allows you to practice note reading away from the instrument.

These Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory: Note Naming Flash Cards include 60 note naming cards, containing 96 notes and rests in the alto, treble and bass clefs. It is organized into 4 progressive sets and may be used with any beginning music theory course. Highly recommended!
