Term 4 - Summer - Week 4 Lightly Row
We have been singing the fingering pattern for Lightly Row all week. Already D can play through it through. Shows that effort on the Twinkles pays off. D leading Twinkle group now - the small classes mean that even at a young age the children can take a lead and responsibility.
Enjoy learning about Gossick piece from accomplished student before us - how to find 3 personalities in the music. And how to find the jolly person in the Happy Farmer. Also neat exercise to promote use of the heel of the bow - holding bow halfway up and bowing from heel.
Meanwhile we are still working on the gripping thumb who today has pyjamas drawn on him - though D reckons he is an octopus.
