Things to Review
Groups of Two Black Keys
Music Alphabet A B C D E F G
White Keys C D E
Here we teach the white key names by relating them to the black key groups. It is the easiest way for students to learn to locate the white keys. Using something a student already knows to help them learn something new is always a good teaching technique.
After following the instructions on this page for finding all of the C’s, D’s, and E’s, turn back to page 6 and review the groups of two black keys. Have the student play these exercises on white keys C D, then D E.
Now, turn to page 8 and play “New Things” on C and D.
