Vivace Advanced is our most recent game. If you liked our original 'Vivace' game, you and your students are going to love this advanced version!
The objective of the game is to collect more musical pieces than other players. Musical pieces are collected by grabbing the correct musical piece quickly, before the other players, when the word “VIVACE” is said aloud accompanied with the picture, name, or definition of a musical term.
The 17 'advanced' musical notes and symbols are formed out of 3/16" thick acrylic. Notes and symbols range in size from 3 inches tall to 1 inch square for the smaller symbols. They come in a large white draw string bag perfect for allowing students to reach in, feel each piece, and guess the symbol or note they are touching. Your students will learn to know each curve of every advanced note and symbol. It's powerful!
You have your choice of getting an all black or a multi-colored advanced symbol set.
You also have your choice of getting either just the original game - or - the Vivace Game Package
The Vivace Game Package includes everything for both 'Vivace' (the original game) and 'Vivace Advanced' game. It includes a total of 34 large acrylic musical symbols (basic and advanced symbols), two draw string bags, two master symbol lists (covering both basic and advanced symbols), and instructions for playing a variety of different games and activities.
Vivace comes complete with 17 large acrylic musical symbols and notes, large 12" deep Vivace draw string bag, instructions, laminated answer key, and 3 levels of laminated playing cards.
1. Create Sandwiches
Using the three different levels of playing cards, have the student(s) lay out all of the pictures cards (level 1), then they layout the acrylic pieces on top of the matching picture card, then have them lay out the right name card on top of this, and then lastly the correct definition card to complete the sandwich.
2. Eyes closed
Place the musical pieces in the black Vivace bag and have the student grab a particular musical piece with their eyes closed. They can also grab a random musical piece and just by feeling it (don’t peek!) the student must figure out which one they are holding and/or define it.
Players sit in a circle and every player except for one person has a musical piece in their hand. Someone plays the piano (or play a recording of a song). When the music is playing everyone passes their pieces to the right. When the song stops the player without a musical piece is out of the game. Take away a musical piece and do it again. Play until there is only one player left!
7. Find it in the music
Give a player a musical piece and sheet music that they are working on. Have them find the musical term in their music (or count how many they can find)!
