This economical, but well-designed set of Flash Cards is targeted for all beginning music students. It is especially helpful for those (children and adults) who are learning keyboards, harps, or beginning band instruments. Music teachers and homeschooling parents may enjoy having this little set as a fun, "go-to" activity that builds music theory, critical thinking, sight-reading, and vocabulary. Games using the cards can create interest and opportunities for additional practice.

In my quest to learn the harp and to share music with others, I wanted a quick, non-electronic, and easy-to-read method to learn / review musical notes, terms, and symbols. At the time, Amazon had several types of products in this area. I took some time to decide which product would be best for me. I selected this set, and that choice has proven to be a good one! This is a nice, easy-to-read / easy-to-understand set of flash cards, and the colors do seem to stimulate one's mind, memory. Eye-glass wearers will appreciate the big, dark fonts on these cards.

What's nice is that the cards are two-sided with the teaching item on front and its answer on back. Apparently, some flash card sets in music do not have the answers on back; I read this in one Amazon review. What's the point of having the card if you don't have the meaning with it? Fortunately, this 89 Color-Coded Flash Card set gives the learner and teacher both sides of the situation, which is most appreciated!) Cards 3 through 36 show the named notes as they would appear on the musical staff as well as their location on piano / keyboard.

I purchased "Complete Color Coded Flash Cards for All Beginning Music Students" (5.25 x 4.125 x 2.875, 89 cards) by Alfred Publishing, "Music Flash Cards Set A (Hal Leonard Student Piano Library)" ( 6 x 3 x 1.125, 126 cards) by Jeff Schroedl Blake, and "Music Flash Cards set B (Educational Piano Library)" (6 x 3 x 1.125, 138 cards) by Hal Leonard Corp. Henceforth these will be referred to as "Complete Set," "Set A," and "Set B," respectively.

Each sells for full retail on Amazon, $4.95. None are laminated. None come in a box; each has only a cardboard wrap (secured with a rubber band) that covers where the face, spine, and back of book would be. All have answers on back along with card numbers. All are color coded for different areas of study. The Complete Set and Set A both show the notes on the piano keyboard relative to Middle C.

Complete Set (89 cards)
* cards 1-36 (yellow): Bass Clef; Treble Clef; Bass clef notes Low C through E above Middle C; Treble clef notes A below Middle C through High C.
* cards 37-50 (pink): Eighth though whole note including dotted fourth and dotted half; Eight rest through whole rest; time signatures 2/4, 3/4, 4/4.
* cards 51-65 (white): Words and symbols describing the tempo and volume of music.
* cards 66-77 (green): special music notations (sharp, flat, natural, fermata, pedal sign, 8va, staccato, slur, tied, repeat, repeats, D.C. al Fine).

The flashcards review many topics but my favorite was how they handled teaching reading of notes. They had a range of notes treble and bass clef from leger lines above to leger lines below. On the front of the card is just the note, but on the back, on a far more basic level is the note in the staff with the letter name of the note in the quarter note bubble. And below is a keyboard graphic with the note highlighted again- where to play it. Teaching beginning piano these have been great because the kids have all the reminders with them at home if they forgot from the lesson or are unsure as to which key, note, placement, etc.

Update 4/29/15: One of my harp students gave me a new deck of these today to replace the ones she borrowed, and told me offhand that they were on sale. While I'm here to purchase more, I'd just like to say that I still LOVE these flashcards. They're perfect for a private studio -- inexpensive enough to let students take them home, but sturdy and clear enough to be useful. Two thumbs up!

Original Jan 2011: I purchased these cards for my husband, who as a boy always memorized his piano music before he actually learned how to read it. He has been a play-by-ear pianist ever since, and his lack of basic musical language has been debilitating in our marriage! ;) These cards were just right. Not only can we shuffle the note flashcards so that he can't memorize the order, but they introduced/reintroduced most of the more common musical symbols.

As a musician, I am able to flesh out the cards with more information; thus, these are the only tool we've used thus far. After DH learned the notes flash-card style, I had him start adding the octave (not just "A", but "A3"). Later, I would flash the cards at him and he would play the correct note on the piano. Then we started recording the time it took him to finish that portion of the deck. Worked like a charm.

The cards are well made, and the color-coding has been very useful in the execution of our informal lessons. The cover is also a nice little touch, and keeps the deck fresh and clean. Overall, I'd say these are perfect -- and _definitely_ worth five bucks!
