Piano Lesson: Rina, 4, climbs the musical staircase of letter names after playing 8 notes at the piano (Videos) by arioso7: Shirley Kirsten
Rina continued her exploration of Melody by playing the seven notes, C through B on the piano, capping her step-wise ascent with a high C. I embellished her scale-wise journey with chordal accompaniment.
Following this activity, Rina climbed up and down my staircase after she had placed musical alphabet flashcards on each step. We then sang note-to-note as I attached a chord to enrich each one.
Our work continued through Chapter 14, "Princess Melody," from Tales of a Musical Journey by Irina Gorin
By the conclusion of today's 13th lesson, Rina had tapped G, A, and B, to prerecorded music using a choice of fingers 2, 3 or 4 in each hand. In addition, she composed a rhythm using cardboard black and white circles that she had set on the music rack in her desired order.
