Hello everyone!

This is the last homework assignment before the break!

Happy Holidays everyone and a Happy New Year! See you all in 2019!

Simone

Recommended minutes to practice: 15 Minutes per day

Songs: D-E-F march work on this for one more week. Remember to check what notes you are playing in the song before you start playing. Check to see where your hands go and get set up! Remember to always count while you play and keep a steady beat. We also learned Mister blue bird, Dance band and frogs on logs. Today we learned Time Signature. 4/4 time means that the top number tells us how many beats are in one measure. The bottom number tells us that a quarter note gets one beat. Continue filling out the counting before you play a new song and always count yourself in!

How parents can support practice: Encouraging your child to practice regularly and helping them develop a routine is the best way to be supportive. Additionally, check their homework log for accuracy.

 

Ruby

Songs: There will be a test on “It’s a small world”. Remember to keep a steady beat and  count while you play.  You can also work on “Peter, Peter” and we can have a test on that one as well. For your test, I will give you both comments and a mark for each song. Also for fun, try learning all I want for christmas by ear! Play the song on youtube then try playing it back on the piano! Have fun with it. We will try this again in the new year.
