Just a reminder, students DO NOT need to bring bubbles to class. I have a set for the class to use. You can keep it next to your piano at home.
A few ideas to bring playfulness to practice time:
Homework: p. 18–19 Students color the intervals as specified. Be sure you know the finger numbers so you can help your child practice correct fingerings (see illustration on p. 68).
Edna will teach us how to sight sing and sight read. Ask your child about what Edna did in class this week.
Kit Kat Keyboard
If you have a digital keyboard at home, discover the fun, groovy beats to chant and play Kit Kat Keyboard with!
This week we learned our fingers have numbers. When they do their bubble exercise, ask them to wiggle their 3 finger, their 5 finger, etc. This exercise is important for finger strength and dexterity.
In Let’s Play Music we learn that intervals are Turtle Shells! An interval is the distance between 2 notes. Learn more about the importance of melodic and harmonic intervals in learning how to read and play music here!
For my convenience, I have preloaded content for the whole semester. I will update each future post with specific time-sensitive info before I send the link each week. If you choose to read ahead you might see details that don’t apply to your child’s class. For this reason I do not recommend reading ahead. Thank you!
