Level 3 Fluency: Snake and Dice

Updated: Jul 20, 2021

The learning objective for this game sheet is to achieve quick changes between chords in any position. The focus is randomness but with some element of predictability. With my students I also stipulate whether chords can move to the nearest option or have to jump an octave or alternate between hands or play the treble clef chord and left hand root note.


What we are not looking for is correct harmonic progressions but rather an experiment in the character and quality of the sound alongside ease of movement.

Version 1

  1. State the key and complete the chord grids.

  2. Set a time limit per chord.

  3. Roll 1 dice and move your counter forward from the head, play the inversion within the time specified.

  4. Roll the dice a second time for the second clef counter and repeat point 2.

  5. Alternate with a second player where applicable.

  6. For an incorrect chord return to the head.
