The red Greek Letter Cards pictured above are the Greek letter cards. Students need to learn the Greek letters in order to read ison, mode keys, and tone keys. The Greek letter card deck has 6 sets of cards in different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, purple and pink. These cards are used without pitch in Level 1.
Ni Pa Vou Cards
The Ni Pa Vou cards pictured above are for practicing the scales on pitch. The colors give students something visual to associate each pitch of the scale with. We often use Curwen hand signs with these cards because it provides a spacial element, allowing students to sense where they are in the scale. Although Curwen hand signs were developed for western music theory we will use them until I develop more appropriate hand signs.
