We had a wonderful week together in Exploring Music 6! We are in the middle of our guitar unit and have already learned how to play the notes E, F, and G. We have also learned where the notes E, F, G, B, C, and D live on the musical staff! To help us keep all of the note names straight we played a game called Flashnote Derby on the Ipads at the beginning of class on Wednesday. This game featured the students riding a reindeer through the snow covered woods. The app shows a flash card with musical notation written on it. In order for the reindeer to advance, the students had to select the correct note. This was a fun and interactive way to practice our note names!
