Pink Piggies Lesson 12

Pink Piggies Lesson #12

Lesson 15 will be an "Instrument Day"! This class gives families a chance to share an instrument. Of course, performing is optional and you are welcome to just listen, but we would enjoy hearing from you, your child, or another family member or friend who plays an instrument. We welcome any and all performers! Let me know if you have any questions.


Two of the songs we sing this semester, Picaflor and Hey! Hey! Look at Me!, have only two pitches, SOL and MI. A third song, Doggie, Doggie, Where’s Your Bone?, adds LA for a total of only three pitches. This is because the SOL-MI interval is the easiest interval for the child to learn to recognize, imitate, and sing in tune, therefore allowing children to have successful singing experiences. We also use these songs to expose children to the musical staff and pitch relationships.

(Remember, these activities are optional but can be a great bonding experience to do with your child during the week.)
