This week in Exploring Music 6 students got a lot of hands on time with the guitar! At the beginning of the week we learned about three new notes that are found on the second string of the guitar. These notes are B, C, and D. Each note has a unique address in our musical neighborhood. B lives on the 3rd line, C lives on the 3rd space, and D lives on the 4th line. Students practiced reading our new notes (as well as our old notes E, F and G) by using a game on the Ipads on Tuesday called NoteDerby! Students were a character riding a reindeer through the snowy woods. In order to advance, students were shown a flashcard of a musical note on the staff and had to correctly identify that note! Ask your student how many questions they were able to answer correctly when we tried a round with all six notes!
