PPIF Book 1 - Note Reading


It is a good idea to ask the student to read aloud the notes of bars 1 and 2 of each new piece. You can then confirm the student's note reading ability. They would hesitate when a new note appears. For eg, if they read notes of bars 1 and 2 on page 13 as Middle C then hold on teacher, a little problem has popped up. They might not have fully understood your page 11 lesson. They are reading by shape and colour thus the crotchets (quarter notes) are read across as one same note - Middle C. Do not panic - you have nipped the problem in the bud. Make them aware of the difference and carry on reading with the actual score or you can use illustrate further on page 62. Hey-ho... Have fun!
