Thank you, parents, for attending class! In our puppet show we learned about the new terms: introduction, bridge and coda (read more about them below). Now that your child has been practicing their composition for several weeks, help them experiment with their piece by incorporating some of these variations:
Be sure to send me all of the updated edits for their composition. You can either write out the music, send me a video, or do both! Reminder: Another private lesson is coming up on Lesson #11, April 6. Your lesson time is the same as Lesson #6. We will finalize all compositions.
Homework: pp. 22–23 Students fill in the chart with the correct notes.
This repertoire piece has all the elements that we've learned about in our puppet shows! It has an introduction, a CODA (special ending) and it has 2 BRIDGES. We will actually learn the theme in C Major and then we will get to show off our transposing skills to play it in F and G.
G Major Scale
This is the last of the major scales we will learn during our time in Let's Play Music. All of our scales have taught us finger technique and strength, but also allowed us to understand key signatures and scale compositions. Just as our Magic Keys Song will tell us, Do is G because the F# is a ti — so don't forget to play that F# on ti !
Even Disney's Aristocats know how important it is to practice their scales (and arpeggios)!
Also, we have attached coloring pages for our Circus Puppet Show for fun!
