We started writing music notes today! Students drew quarter notes on space F.
If your child has been playing Scale In and Out with just the RH, they might want to try playing hands together this week. If your child is needing a little extra help on this activity, here's a video link that will help!
Homework: p. 20–21 Students fill in the letter names on the keyboards as assigned. Be sure to have those flashcards out every day! They won't regret it!
Our old favorite caterpillar is BACK to help our finger strength, coordination, and dexterity! This time we are asking even MORE out of your little musician by requiring their hands to play in parallel motion.
Bounce and Roll
Our first repertoire piece will have your child sight reading and playing hands together. It will also teach us how to accurately execute and recognize the articulation markings for staccato and legato that we experienced physically last week!
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!
