Make teaching young children easier
Leprechaun cards are designed to take the fear and frustration out of lessons and practice with even the youngest children. Give them a fun and engaging, colorful game, and away they go! Each card is simple and easy to perform, breaking down the steps for you.
Eliminate short attention spans
Teaching young children is difficult because it is hard to keep up with their 2-minute cycle of attention. WIth violin, it is even worse due to the complicated nature of the instrument.
Leprechaun is designed to move with this level of energy. It is paced just right, to move through activities in a way that keeps them interested.
Get to Twinkle faster
The Leprechaun Cards Pre-Twinkle deck is designed to help students progress through basic aspects of beginning violin, including holding the bow, moving the bow, placing the fingers, and basic rhythms. Singing and rhyming lyrics are included to help students engage with the exercises.
Each card is meant to address a key point of balance, technique, body awareness, or ear training, while giving children control of the process by choosing which card they will do next.
After a few weeks of playing the game, the student will be ready to play Twinkle Little Star.
Easy to play:
- Select six cards, one of each color.
- Arrange the cards on the floor, in a basket, or in envelopes
- Student draws one card at a time and performs the activity
- When all cards have been done, the Leprechaun gets to the end of the rainbow and his pot of gold!

Field tested and proven
Several years ago I sat down and drew out the first draft of this game on colored paper. Since then it has been used in hundreds of lessons and group classes. The results have proven themselves: kids love this game, and it helps them practice both in the lesson and at home.
No previous knowledge required
Anyone can use these cards! No musical background required. Each card is self-explanatory, and the instruction and lyrics booklets included will provide what you need to help the student perform.
You can watch a sample video of the game at LeprechaunCards.com [COMING SOON].
