October is quickly approaching. For our Selah students, that means Fall Into Music Bingo, spooky scales, and a Theory Party week October 16-21. Please make sure you have Registered for the group time you plan to attend. Remember, one hour Group Lessons REPLACE your private lesson for the week. Please be careful at drop off and pick up and do not bring anything inside (this helps us to not get our books mixed up).
🍂Fall Into Music Bingo is a fun way to get students motivated and mix things up a bit. Everyone will get a bingo card during lesson time this week or next week. Students have all month to work on their card. Each bingo receives a prize. Encourage your students to aim for one bingo a week and blackout by the end of the month.
Have your child watch and listen to a professional musician on YouTube OR you could take them to a live performance.
♮For a rhythm game, clap a rhythm and have them clap it back to you or have them clap along to Corn Rhythm Song
♯ For drawing the Grand Staff or two measures of Rhythm, take a look in the book for helps or have them ask their teacher at their next private lesson for help.
As sickness abounds please help our teachers stay healthy by limiting exposure. Please consider waiting in your car, especially if you have siblings in tow. While we enjoy seeing parents, we really want to limit our family homes from so many germs. If your student is exhibiting symptoms, consider a virtual lesson! Simply let your teacher know you would like to do a virtual lesson. We will happily accommodate.
Also, please have your child use the bathroom before or after our short lesson time and only use our private resident bathrooms if there is an emergency.
As we move into the Holiday season we want to encourage you to purchase a Christmas book for your student! You can check out some we like to use on our SHOP page. Order the level and publisher that your lesson books are in. If you already have a Christmas book, please begin sending it with your student in the next few weeks. We will be planning an outing for select students for December to perform at a nursing home.
