Things to Review
2nds and 3rds
G and F Lines

Whatʼs New
G Major Five-Finger Position
Repeat Sign

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.
