Things to Review
2nds and 3rds
G and F Lines
G Major Five-Finger Position
We bring back the bold G and F lines, and the clef signs on the keyboard map, to help students make the connection between the new notes on the staﬀ, and their location on the keyboard.
We only use 2nds and 3rds in this piece. Show students that these intervals work the same wherever they are on the staﬀ. To help achieve this, cover up the clef signs with “Post-it” notes, set the hand position, and have the student read only by interval.This builds skill and confidence when reading in a new or less familiar area of the staﬀ.
For some bonus work, have students play hands together on the repeat.
