A few ideas to bring playfulness to practice time!
Duet with your parent (octave higher/lower OR they play LH while you play RH).
Play the melody with just your index (pointer) finger.
Make up your own words toa song and sing your version while you play.
Don’t Put Your Trash
Harmony happens when we sing our designated part AND listen to those around us! What a skill! As a family, each person can choose their favorite part and
with the cd sing their part all 3 times! All 3 parts begin on the same pitch and the actions will help you stay on your part.
This week we drew in the 'bulls eye' and 'arrow feather' to create a stylized calypso accompaniment. First, sing, chant, or clap Ting-a-layo with each
chord while practicing with your child then sing the lyrics of the song while your child dazzles you with this exciting accompaniment!
Hickory Dickory Dock
Tick, tock let us rock while playing in parallel motion! This is tricky business, playing the same note together with both hands at the same time.
Physically rock back and forth with your child to feel the rocking motion their hands will play. Once they get this down enjoy playing the melody while
they play the parallel 5ths. What a dynamic duo!
World renowned pianist Vladimir
Horowitz shares an inspiring perspective of practicing!
