Reminder: Next week is STATION DAY! This is a class that would be the WORST class of the year to miss. This is often what gives kids the extra push to be excited in January, the class that excites the child who is way ahead - it's SO FUN!
Chord Transitions "Mom, did you know I can play my chords with my eyes shut?" The goal is to have their eyes on the music while they are playing as much as possible, with only quick glances at their fingers. With their favorite song, invite them to memorize it and "see" the chords in their minds while they play with their eyes closed. Use a paper or something else between their eyes and their hands to make sure they're not looking!
Holiday Songs The holiday songs in the back of the songbook are great practice to reinforce chord transitions while being entertaining for your student and family. These songs will add cheer to the holidays and festivities and they will help solidify the transition between ALL of the chords in the right hand before we begin Yellow Arrows. Jingle away!
With the holidays approaching here is a Gift Buying Guide for your budding musician!
