2016-2017: “A Musical Year”

Week Five

This week, students continued to enjoy sight-reading with Sheldon and Maxwell.  We are learning to think about notes, rhythm, dynamics, and other important details before playing.  Sheldon and Maxwell make it fun!

Older students enjoyed a game break this week!  We learned how to play “Pitch It,” a game that helps us practice naming enharmonic notes.


Younger students had a fun time reviewing finger numbers and piano keys with “Lumber Jack,” one of our all-time favorite games!

Some highlights from my week were hearing several students come into their lesson saying they are really enjoying their recital pieces and seeing one of my youngest student’s awesome hand posture!
