Description of Pedagogical Tool:

This is the “bingo” card that each student requires. Students mingle with other students to build the chord names provided on the sheet. They need to write in the note on the staff that each student had (that is in the chord) and they need to note the name of every student who built the chord. Suited for grade 11 music students.
