Christmas Gift

Students grasp the true purpose of scales while enjoying some of their favorite Christmas songs.

Students begin by playing any scale while saying the solfege. Why solfege? Because solfege turns the ear on to the personality of each note within a scale. (All scales are included for review.) A chord warm up is given as a powerful exercise that locks you into the key. Students are then able to play the song in any key like a true musician – listening, feeling, and knowing what they’re doing – not just guessing what the black dots are on a page!

Students in Keyboard Foundations, Book 2 will be able to play the Roman numeral chords in the left hand.

By thinking in a key, students simultaneously improve sight-reading and ear training skills.

Learn the simplicity of transposing and playing in any key.
