Montessori Activity: Introduction to Musical Note

Age: From 3 years old


1. To teach distinction between musical note and different pitches.


1 set of musical bells.


1. Shake it from number one to eight and say the corresponding note e.g. "do", "re", "mi"... etc.

2. Shake number 1 and say this is the lowest note.

3. Shake number 8 and say this is the highest note.

4. Invite your child to experiment and ask him which of the note is higher or lower.

Additional Information:

Each of these bells plays a distinct note - do re mi fa so la ti do... (the only cons is that the last two notes are not so distinguishable). These bells come with a sheet with 3 different songs. It helps the child to be sensitive to different sound - the high note and the low note. The child learns that the different pitch that each bell makes could be coordinated to make a beautiful tune. It is a good tool to introduce a child to musical note. I bought it from Amazon:
