Playing Fine

Next, the students can look through their deck of music symbol cards for the six dynamic signs and everyone is ready to play Fine. Although this is fairly easy, make the practice count by asking them to arrange their cards beginning with the softest one time.

On the next round ask for loudest to softest. Then to help them notice the symmetry of the dynamics cards, lay out the Fine symmetrically.  

"This time let's start with the two mezzo cards," or "This time let's begin with fortissimo and pianissimo and work our way to the middle cards."
