Green Turtle Shells Lesson #4
Next week parent’s attend and tuition is due!
When you come you can make class especially great by arriving a few minutes early to get your child's hands washed, settle in at the keyboard, and throughout class encourage your child, praise them for the wonderful progress their little hands have made (hugs, do bombs, high 5's, etc.), participate in all of the activities, and have fun with them.
This week we reviewed anchor notes C & F in class with the 2nd verse of Kit Kat Keyboard. Play a quick game of “Show Me a _______”( LOW F, HIGH C or a MIDDLE C). This will help cement these white anchor notes as well as review keyboard geography!
Do you want to build a snowman? This year, a red chord will always be stacked up nice and neat like a snowman with two stacks of 3rds. Enjoy drawing rounded snowmen for the theory this week!
Now that we know how to read and play a red chord we get to play our favorite Old Paint! When you sing together exaggerate that down beat: good BYE, old PAINT, I'm LEAV-in Chey-ENNE. Mix it up singing in a cowboy voice, an opera voice, to help make it goofy and fun! SING ALONG as your child accompanies you both feeling the steady beat and hearing beautiful harmonies all at once!
Our first puppet show this year has been renamed “Spring Bees” for the sake of Let's Play Music's story line. However, its real name is “Spring” and is from a set of four violin concertos called, The Four Seasons composed by Antonio Vivaldi. What is your child’s favorite character? Can they hear the loud (forte) and soft (piano) within the themes? Which themes are major and which ones are minor?
