Parents come on Wednesday for Station Day! Please have your child ready to play their recital pieces for me during our Celebration Station meeting. We will meet briefly to celebrate your child’s progress and be sure they feel comfortable for the performance.
Homework: pp. 32–35 Students cut out and glue on pieces for the “March of the Gnomes” puppet show. This will also help them get ready for the recital.
Mom and dad, did you know I can play all the Primary Chords with BOTH HANDS with my eyes shut? The goal is to have their eyes on the music while they playing as much as possible, with only quick glances at their fingers. With their favorite song, invite them to memorize it and "see" the chords in their minds while they play with their eyes closed.
Mastering Playing Hands Together
This is likened to patting your head and tummy at the same time! Play hands separate until each hand is mastered, then put hands together one measure at a time. Slow and steady wins the race!
