Interesting Image

Thank you for attending class today! Aren't your kids amazing?! As a reminder, there's no class next week (Spring Break - do something fun for me... I'll be doing taxes.)

Lesson 15 is Station Day! Parents attend this with us. We'll have so much fun!

If you have not registered for next year yet, please do. I am waiving the registration fee for anyone who does it before the recital. Here's how.

Celebrate Connection
A few ideas to bring playfulness to practice time!

  • Play with a metronome set at 60, then 80.
  • Play the RH part with your LH.
  • Perform for a neighbor or friend.

This Old Man

How exciting to see the culmination of the last 2 years of chord study when writing the accompaniment for this song! We use our ears to hear what sounds correct, then use our staff knowledge to write the correct chord on the staff.

Scale Mix-Up

You can play scales anywhere on the keyboard! Begin on any C. Choose to play OUT & IN or IN & OUT. Play each hand separate with various bugs. So many possibilities!

Dotted Quarter Eighth Note

A.K.A “Shoo-oot the”! This rhythm is tricky to count though feeling and chanting the dotted quarter note (the bulls eye) and eighth note (arrow feather) with “shoo-oot the” will place each note exactly where it needs to be played in time. Pull out your own beat box to practice the various rhythms!

Have the practice blues set in at home? Jazz up practicing by adding some variety with practice time. Also open up the Green Turtle Shells Songbook and play all of the chords in the LH while playing the melody with the RH. Celebrate the wonderful progress your child has made throughout this year!
