Bass C Touchdown!

Primer Level Lesson Book, Pg. 58, Football Game

First there’s a warm-up to the warm-up! Philip practices the left-hand trick (skipping up and down from the new bass C), then the right-hand trick (playing the broken fifth). That reinforces the skipping finger feel and prepares him for those measures in which there is a change from notes that step up or down. A low C is added as the “field goal.” Philip quickly connects these activities to his own world. The high kick is the big event. The referee signals touchdown!

    Love it! Children are so good as visualizing things so having the vision of football players was perfect for this student. Good work to Nancy and her student!
