Good work Fiona with the songs in the book this week. During our lesson we talked about how to find your location on the piano. First thing to look for is reading all of the notes in the song. Next you should clap and count the rhythm of each note before you play. After you have done that you now should look for the finger numbers above and below the beginning notes. This will tell you where to place your hands. Take your time while going through these steps and be sure to ask for help if you really can’t find where to start!
