Are you looking for summer music classes? Join my summer camp, Let's Play it Again, created specifically for and only open to 1st and 2nd year Let's Play Music students! They are so fun and parents don't have to attend. Student Packets are available to ANY 1st year students. They have games and activities to do at home to help review and prime your child for success in Year 2!
Homework: pp. 34–37 Students cut out and glue on pieces for the “Fox Hunt” puppet show.
Chords in Pieces
The new activity today was singing a broken primary chord on command. The children sang the correct chord a cappella for me when I held up a color. They did fantastic! This shows us that their aural brain is internalizing pitches and their ability to sing in tune is developing. These concepts may seem unimportant, but they are crucial to developing a complete musician. Laying this solid aural foundation now will help your student take dictation in 3rd year and write their own composition.
Let's play steps and skips on our bells! If you open your Homework Booklet you'll find some bell music at the back. Encourage your child to play it. Even better, encourage them to start writing their own bell music and notate it if they'd like.
