"What Note Am I" Icebreaker game: According to piano teacher Joy Morin, students try to figure out what note, value, or rhythm they are by asking questions such as, "Do I have a stem?", "Is my note head filled in?", "Am I worth two beats?", etc.
Sing or Dare: "Sing" cards like "sing [the song] while marching the beat" or "sing the song, but buzz all the words 'the'." "Dare" cards like "Name everyone in the room" or "Hug the teacher." (I think I might change the dares to musical things like "sightread a simple song" or "play the melody on the xylophone.")
