Declan – continue with eight days a week, especially the middle part that starts on A. Parents, help Declan to practice by reviewing the pages with him.

The song is eight days a week by the Beatles so please play the song around the house at different times.
Griffin – practice Little Black Submarines playing the rhythm correctly and moving to each chord on time.

The next step is to get Griffin to sing the song while playing it, so please be very encouraging.
Simon – Parents, make sure Simo practices Seven Nation Army, Love Me Do and Knocking On Heavens Door, making sure that he plays the songs in time and plays all parts the correct amount of times.
