Set Up

2) Get one die from board game
3) Cut out playing cards and stack them face up in five piles

Yellow/Time Signatures
Magenta/Tempo Terms
Orange/Note Names

Game Play

Players begin at "Start". First player rolls die to determine space, and drives Matchbox car to that space. Player draws playing card with the color that matches the parking curb. If the player correctly identifies the musical symbol or defines the musical term on the playing card they record a point on their score card. The playing card is returned to the bottom of the stack. If the player is incorrect they are awarded a parking ticket and return to previous space. The playing card is returned to the stack. Players continue to move around the game board in a counterclockwise motion, draw cards, and collect points until one player has collected enough points (15 points with at least one point from each category) to win the game.


Teachers may chose to drill a more limited set musical elements. Players will move from one parking space to the next, ignoring the colored cards and colored parking curbs. The player wins if they successfully move their car completely around the board to arrive at Carnegie Hall before being awarded all three parking tickets.

Blank cards are provided if you wish to add more musical symbols and terms.
