By now, your child has earned their white belt after testing for Hot Cross Buns with me! I am very proud of all their hard work learning this song. The next song we are learning is called Gently Sleep. They should already know the tune of this song, as we learned it with different words earlier in the school year. This song is easy and difficult at the same time. The easy part is that both of the lines are exactly the same, which means once they've learned half of the song, they can play the whole thing. The difficult part is the last measure, where they have to move their fingers from a B to a G, which means they have to move two fingers together at the same time. They will have plenty of directed practice time and plenty of time alone to work on this song.
I look forward to seeing how well the students can play this song!
