  • Mozart's Musical Dice Game (Musikalisches Würfelspiel)


This game, originating in 18th century Europe, is credited to Mozart. This musical game of 'chance' is played when dice are used to create music from pre-composed musical measures. You simply roll the dice and the musical measure with the coordinating number is used to compose a piece of music. This composition 'game' can be played individually or in teams of 2 or more.

Check out additional FREE info on this lesson by looking at my blog post!

Included in this NO-PREP, print and go, package is:

  • 1 class hand out
  • 2 dice templates (numbers 1-6 and 7-12)
  • 2 unique student composition worksheets (that walks your students through the entire musical dice game and musical composition)
  • 1 extra sheet of staff paper

This is an easy and really engaging lesson for upper elementary and beyond. Your options are limitless with this! Have students create their music using 1 or both dice, copy the compositions onto the staff paper, and bring it to an instrument to play. This could, potentially, be a multi-lesson project.

    Mozart Dice Game

    Posted by ROE on Feb 20th 2022

    Nicely laid out and easy to use. I had hoped that someone had had the idea to make a student-version of this item (Würfelspiel by Mozart) and was happy to find it here!
