Recently one of my reviewers in Germany told me that she loved the Rainbow Castle game, which is part of “Beginning Rhythm”
, except that she could not use it with her child because Germany uses a different notation system than America. I forgot to compensate for that when I made the game. In Northern and Central Europe, there is a variation of using the letter “H” to represent the white note below “C”. (“B” is the black note right below it.) It was this notation system that Bach used to sign his name into many of his compositions with the notes “B-A-C-H.”
In countries that use fixed do, the note names are simply ‘Do’, ‘Re’, ‘Mi’, ‘Fa’, ‘So’, ‘La’, and ‘Si’.”
I have now updated the “Beginning Rhythm” program to include game boards that accommodate these notation systems, as well as game boards for solfege with “Ti”.
You can download international gameboards here for free.
For the entire game with the playing cards, I refer you to “Beginning Rhythm.” I have mostly added these files as an update for those who already have the game.
