Age level?

What age are these "lessons" intended for? Because it only took me a week to memorize the keys.

I agree that most students can learn the key names right away. However, having them write in a different key each week (plus do a physical exercise such as "Dipping Donuts") encourages familiarity and speed at identifying and finding keys.

I've learned not to take it for granted that a new skill will stay with a student without continual review!
