English and Spanish version
Students can learn some basic characteristics about the piano and try to play the instrument.
They can try to create their own melody, play a specific song (the teacher can choose it), or see how the piano works in Minecraft, by taking the path and seeing the redstone mechanics and note blocks inside the instrument.
Also, students can try to answer the question Beethoven asks them.
In this activity, students should work together to play a melody or song. Each student should choose an specific note to play and play it in the correct time so the melody sounds right.
The piano only has two scales, so before playing a song confirm that the piano has the correct notes to play your chosen song. Teachers should help students find songs with these specifications.
