Vivian is introduced to the C-D-E groups in a more challenging melodic contour, and the rhythmic feel for quarter, half, and whole notes is reinforced. Large rocking motions prepare her to sense the underlying musical pulse. Pointing to the notes while singing finger numbers strengthens the understanding of directional reading. Because the middle fingers are used, the hand is kept in balance. Notice that Vivian keeps her eyes on the music while she plays! From Piano Adventures Primer Level, Lesson Book page 22.
