Online Music Lesson | March 25 | Mary Had a Little Lamb
Welcome to today's online music lesson. This is most certainly a surreal time for all of us and I hope all of you are safe and at home. Today we are going to do a lesson using the notes C, D, E which we learned in our previous lesson. Well be using those notes to play Mary Had a Little Lamb.
This is a great lesson for your preschoolers, kindergartners and first graders. Most importantly, all the parents as well! Lol! Learning music as a family is a wonderful thing and we can definitely have some fun together.
I've prepared a few worksheets below that you can download and print or send to your iPad or other devices to make it easier to follow along.
Tips for Learning Music
Music, just as any other language needs to be learned one step at a time. Therefore, the best way to do it is slowly and repetitively. So here are a few tips to making the most out of your music lessons. Firstly, break everything down into smaller sections. This is called "chunking" and as the word alludes to, reminds us to break things into manageable "chunks".
Secondly, have patience and don't rush. Remember, you're learning a whole new language, it's okay if you don't get it the first time. There's no rush or goal line. You are on a musical journey, no one gets a bigger prize by getting there faster. lol!
Thirdly and most importantly, have fun! I can't stress this point enough. Sadly, there are many people I've spoke to that got frustrated with learning music and gave up. I don't want that to happen to you, ever. Music is a wonderful thing to learn and very rewarding. Give it time and enjoy the process. Enjoy the time with your kids. Have fun listening to great music and fill your house with all different styles.
