Have you played Scoot with your band students? This game is so much fun and required little to no prep! The best part is that it works for ALL class sizes & students love moving around the music room! Students begin answering the card that is on their own music stand. After an appropriate amount of time (maybe 1-2 min) the teacher says “SCOOT!” and all of the students move to the next chair, where a new card awaits them on a music stand. Continue until every student has completed every card!

Have your ever played the game Scoot with your band classes? There is little to no prep involved and it works for all class sizes!
