Mozart’s Musical Patterns

In My First Piano Adventure Book B, students are taught how to recognize and memorize short patterns at a young age. Using colored shapes to symbolize rhythmic and melodic patterns, the student is able to visually grasp the concept of reoccurring notes as a group. Grouping and pattern recognition allows for quick memorization and the ability to play longer sequences by memory. From My First Piano Adventure Lesson Book B, Pg. 24-25, “Mozart’s Musical Patterns.”

    I love this post! The younger sibling running her hair through her mouth and the eldest on the bench! I can relate! This is what I appreciate so much about your literature……you allow kids to be kids. I have five 5/6 Yr. olds in My First Piano Adventure series and they love it! So do I. You help to make my teaching a joy.
