As a result of running the BETA course for "How to Read Music" I have discovered we had two separate groups of people doing the course. There were people who were starting from scratch, who could not yet read music. And then there were other people who knew how to read music but did not yet know the basics of music theory to the standard of Grade 1 ABRSM Music Theory.
So Module 1 in which I was teaching from scratch how to read music was of no interest to people who wanted to dig deep straight into more music signs and terminology, key signatures and major and minor scales etcetera.
On the other hand I have people who have really struggled to be able to co-ordinate reading what they see on the sheet music and getting their fingers to play those notes on the piano.
So the one week I was planning to spend on module 1 of how to read music, is something I discovered I will need to spend extra time on this with additional resources to reinforce these foundational concepts. So to do this, I have decided to create a mini course out module 1 alone which will be an expanded version.
Then for the rest of the modules 2 - 6 I will formulate this into a standalone course on its own that will simply be called "Music Theory - Grade 1". This makes much more sense because by separating the courses, we can ensure that people who enrol in Music Theory Grade 1 have already met the pre-requisite of being able to read music, and therefore they will not get lost inside the course and will all be starting off from the same position.
Because I am in the process of re-jigging the whole course now to create two separate courses, it has taken longer than anticipated to load the lessons. In fact I will be taking the existing lessons down to upload the new versions of the lessons - but this should be sorted over the next few days.
This is the great thing about running a BETA course before launching the official one, is that you have the opportunity to do things like this, and re-jig things to take advantage of feedback to improve the student's experience.
For those who have been waiting around for me to get things sorted... please accept my apologies! I am very grateful to you for your patience, and we will be back and up running to schedule for sure within the next week.
eNROLMENT CLOSES 5PM TODAY
Is learning to read music on your bucket list of things to do? Then this could be a match made in heaven!
We still have four places left on the course. So if you want to apply to do the course for FREE as a Beta tester then email me at infoATaliceletts.com and I will send the details across to you.
Enrolment closes at 5pm today and we kick things off at 8.30pm (GMT) 7.30am (NZ).
Would you like to learn how to read music 🎶
Starting on the 17th of July 2017 our 30 day challenge will begin where you can learn how to read and write music.
This online course will officially launch in September 2017 at £99.00 but I am running a PRE-launch this month and as a founding member you can be the first to try out the course. For an investment of just £27.00 you will get lifetime access to the course so that you can re-take it at anytime in the future that's convenient with you.
In as little as 30 days I will teach you the skills & knowledge required to pass grade 1 music theory exam with Associated Board of the Royal School of Music and as a special bonus we will also cover some of the requirements for Grade 1 Piano so you will be able to play a few scales and play some easy piano pieces.
You don't need a piano to do this course, if you have a friend or local church where you can practise that would be handy. Alternatively if you have an Ipad then you can use the electronic keyboard that is available on the app PianoMaestro that you will get free access to during the 30 days of the challenge.
Are you Ready for the challenge?
If you would like more details on the course please email me at email@example.com and I will reply with the proposed schedule and we can schedule a skype call to chat further.
If you are more advanced and would like online piano lessons via skype then please register your details on my piano teaching website at www.letts.musicteachershelper.com
Hot Cross Buns
Preschool Piano Lesson learning the nursery rhyme "Hot Cross Buns" incorporating WunderKeys Piano for Preschoolers and Preschool Prodigies with solfege.
Middleton 🐭 mouse (3rd finger)
Pointer 🐼 panda (2nd finger)
Thumbelina 🐘 (3rd finger)
The idea is that the preschooler places their three fingers over the solfege below:-
In other words, place their middleton mouse (third finger) over the E, then their pointer panda (second finger) over the D and their thumbelina (thumb) over middle c.
They will then play either their third finger, second finger or thumb, according to the order below.
3 - 2 - 1
3 -2 - 1
1 - 1 - 1 - 1
2 - 2 - 2 - 2
3 - 2 - 1
We started by tapping our fingers on the table.
Then we played the desk bells, yellow, orange and red, as well as the xylophone.
Then we moved across to the piano to play the notes on the piano.
This is a nice and easy piece to play on the piano, perfect for beginners, particularly preschoolers.
