Thank you, Hellene!
I know she has ear for music , she played some songs without the music worksheet ... I promise I will record and post, one she learned at school with voice , one she sing every day from you tube and others she listened from CD. Sometime she don't want to see the staff because she has the song in mind.
Another thing that I am not sure she doing right: she play Gentle piano with 1st and 2nd mode until she learn it and after she try with other 4,5,6 modes and hide.
We know about the teaching videos, there are a huge help and she prefer without metronome. But for "Polovetzian dance" she told me that it is different from Gentle piano and she quit following . We will continue for other songs.
What you mean :" For the games I would recommend to play for 10 min for a game per month and write the score down." ? We choose only one game for an entire month? She prefer Fruit lines game and Note duration game ... but can you tell me what it is best for her to do?
She still has difficulties with bass staff...
Spring brings us the desire to go outside and play and to slow down the others activities. Even so we don’t give up on piano lesson …
Daria starts second level piano pieces at Helene’s advice and she enjoy a lot the new pieces.
Here is Daria the first days practicing “ Barcarolle” by Jacques Offenbach:
We are having fun singing the song without piano.
Here is practicing “Bourree” by Johann Sebastian Bach, she is switching from 1st mode to 4th mode :
She return at “ Fur Elise” by Beethoven and she is playing like this:
I start to record Daria playing piano without she knowing because she is shy and mistakes more when she see me with the phone .
I will return with the progress on this piano pieces soon.
I record Daria playing fruit lines when she sing the notes:
For the music appreciation we have seen “ The swan lake” Tchaikovsky Ballet and listening “Peter and the wolf” by Prokofiev and trying to guess the instruments .
For piano sight reading Daria practiced every day Note Alphabeth School with this score:
27.02.2019 : 887 score for 11:14 time;
04.03.2019: 905 score for 11:19 time;
12.03.2019: 1073 score for 11:44 time.
There are days when she wants to play Fruit Lines School instead of Note Alphabeth . She didn’t finished yet but has already done 46 levels .
06.03.2019: 813 score for 10:27 time;
08.03.2019: 884 score for 10:11 time;
12.03.2019: 936 score for 11:40 time .
We enjoy our journey on learning piano and we will continue. I told Daria that she will have a diploma at the end of the course and she is already impatient to see it... I am not sure if she will recive a diploma and what are conditions to graduate...
Thank you Soft Mozart Academy!
