Each January I begin the One Minute Club initiations. My students love the challenge of being able to get through each level and see their names displayed on the list in the studio. I offer plenty of incentives to keep my student motivated to drill flashcards each and everyday at home, so when they come for their lesson they can make it through their level in under 60 seconds and advance to the next level.
Level 1 - C's
Level 2- C's, F's
Level 3- C's, F's, D's
Level 4- C's, F's, D's, G's
Level 5- C's, F's, D's, G's, B's
Level 6- C's, F's, D's, G's, B's, A's, E's
In practice, they must say and play each flashcard on the piano. When timed, they just need to play the flashcards.
Each level must be played in under 60 seconds. Level 6 must be played in under 60 seconds 3 times in a row in succession in order to finally become a member of the One Minute Club. (Flashcards cover C2-D6 on the keyboard.)
