Next week is parent week and tuition is due!
Reminder: Class starts with our new "AbracaDObra" activity to find "DO is Home", then moves into learning to write music on the staff. Be sure to come a few minutes early so your child gets the most out of these opening activities!
We’ll be adding new note flashcards on our next “parents day” class (Lesson 5), so now’s the time to make sure your student really has a handle on the Treble Clef Space Notes. It will be much easier for them to learn new notes if they’re already really good at identifying the old ones.
Homework: p. 24–25 Students color in the key named below each keyboard.
This song is jam packed with opportunities for musical development. We will further develop our sight reading skills (playing something we have never seen before), stretch our experience with playing intervals, encounter rhythmic reading and learn more about the classical ABA (ternary) form with our fingers instead of JUST our ears. And you thought it was just a fun song you remember singing as a kid!
We also learned about the repeat sign this week and how it makes us 'repeat' something in the music. Here's a fun dance you could do with your child to help them remember to 'dot dot do it again'.
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!
