Musical Clay-to-Win is a musical version of Clay-to-Win (1988). It is similar to pictionary except you sculpt clay instead of draw. I made special cards to make it "musical". The four categories I chose were: music notation (i.e. quarter note), musical instruments (i.e. violin), "things" associated with piano (i.e. chair), and "You Choose a Category" (any item from the categories listed above). This game is a favorite with teens and adults.
Materials needed to play:
2 equal amounts of Play-doh (same color)
Musical Clay-to-Win cards
2 plastic knives
1 very small cookie cutter

To play this game, a Piano Puzzler is played and the students guess the familiar tune and composer whose style it is played. I selected fifteen of these FREE music composer flashcards to use as a list for them to pick from and added a couple composer cards not associated with any Piano Puzzler to make it more interesting.
As a fond reminder of the 2015 Winter Piano Party and encouragement to listen to more Piano Puzzlers, I gave each student a CD containing several Piano Puzzlers.
