MARSHFIELD — A Piano Fun Day was enjoyed by a group of area piano students on Saturday, April 18, at the Chestnut Center for the Arts. The morning event was an opportunity for the piano students to enhance piano and music theory skills in a game-like setting.
First, the students became acquainted with each other in a circle with rhythm activities. They were then divided into teams and rotated to the game events: Rhythm Races, Music Baseball, Pitch Perfect, and Scarf Dancing. To close the morning, each team played “Bluebird on My Shoulder” in ensemble on three keyboards.
Piano Fun Day was sponsored by Marshfield Area Music Teachers Association (MAMTA) and open to students of MAMTA members. MAMTA teachers who planned and led the Piano Fun Day included Julie Crist, Gigi Plautz, and Linda Nelson-Schreiber from Marshfield and Karen Warmuth from Neillsville.
