“Hey Diddle Diddle, D’s in the Middle!”

“Hey diddle diddle, D’s in the middle!” This piece, “Magic Rhyme for Bass,” not only helps the student remember where Bass D lives on the staff, but also packs in six other learning points in its six short measures. Watch as Charlotte and Soleil practice the use of arm weight, dynamic changes, rhythm patterns, keeping a steady tempo, relaxed wrists, and improvisation.
