Hello piano explorers and parents,
Welcome to the last week of summer lessons. Please note there are NO LESSONS next Wednesday. For those who are registered with me in the fall, lessons begin September 9, 2015.
I appreciated teaching Abby and her enthusiasm and willingness to try new things! Keep listening and moving to music. Find the three black keys and play the tune, “Hot Cross Buns”. See if you can also play this on the middle, high and low range of the keyboard. Good luck in the fall!
Today we reviewed the exercises in Dozen a Day as well as chose a few review songs from her book. I didn’t want to start anything new because I won’t be able to follow up with her for two weeks.
Continued to refine “William Tell”. Think of how you want the rhythm to be, before starting. We also did some rhythm activities, finding the “pulse” of the song.
She did well on “Famous People” by counting out loud. Congrats! Practice makes progress. We are starting “Leftover Popcorn” and “Ice Cream”. Check your sharps, flats, naturals in “Ice Cream”. Check your right hand to see if it is in the curved shape. See photos below:
