Blue Bugs #5
Do you turn the Blue Bugs music on everyday? Your whole family will learn something!
Thanks for being such great supportive parents! These kids come to class ready to learn and have fun. They are just soaking up the musical concepts and skills being taught! Thank you for supporting your kiddo!
One month from today, I'll be holding LET'S PLAY MUSIC SPIRIT WEEK! This week will be full of prizes & fun and is the main source of recruiting for the studio! Basically, share videos on social media, or via text/email with your friends and family, and invite people to come to a FREE Sample class, to show people how COOL Let's Play Music is, and you'll win prizes! More info to come!
Learning to anticipate a beat and feel the beat internally is necessary when developing little musicians. The Umburra game helps us to do just that! Practice it at home when you are "playing" with your students.
Playing Skips on the Bells!
We are learning piano skills when we play skips on our bells. Even though the students don't know it, what we learn on the bells will transfer directly over to the piano. It's better to sight read using "relationships" like steps and skips because it reduces the processing your mind has to interpret when reading notes. Plus, we can do it BEFORE they learn note names. It's brilliant!
Today in class we added another layer of knowledge using our bugs! We saw that our musical bugs match with musical rhythms!! It was a great ah-ha moment and musical discovery for your student. They each got their own bug and matched it with it's rhythmic representation.
Let's take a walk in the jungle! "Walking In The Jungle" uses full body involvement (walking, stomping, jumping, skipping) with some creative play to teach steady beat. Gather your children and teach this song to the whole family.
