Parents (and bells) come next week.

Please remember that if ever you aren’t able to come to class please call or email to let me know so that everyone is accounted for. Thank you, thank you!

In the Red Balloon Student Manual, it states, “Young children will assimilate the concepts I introduce in class ONLY if they experience repetition and consistency at home during the week.” It makes such a difference when you work at home to create consistency. Because of this, you are helping to produce great musicians - and of course fine children. Kudos to you!

Five Fat Turkeys

We introduced this song today. It helps us feel that steady beat and soon we’ll find the SOL SOL DO hiding in it.

Baby Steps

The line to a space, or space to a line pattern tells us that we’re moving on the staff in baby steps. Today was exciting because we actually notated a baby step on the staff. The kids are “getting” it! It’s so fun to watch their minds take it all in!

Primary Chord Song

We further internalized these important primary chords by reading the chord chart in pairs on the autoharp. Pretty soon, we'll be able to recognize them by their sound. Fun!

This week we notated baby steps on the staff. So for fun, we'd like to encourage you to get some playdough and have your child make 5 lines, 4 spaces and then some notes. You can use different colors or the same colors. It's up to you. Then put the notes on the lines or spaces and see if you can make some babysteps!

Check out this video and see how this violin teacher helps her students with clay.

We have a treat for you that won't cause cavities- it's a Halloween coloring page.
