Ok, so I have been racking my brains for useful piano and solfege related activities to try with my DD aged 2yr 9 months, who is not quite ready for the piano and computer element of the programme.
I came up with the idea of creating a powerpoint presentation to go with the introductory songs - to help learn the order of notes etc - hopefully this will make the transition to actually playing the piano easier.
I have tried to create a presentation with fairly accurate tempo, so for HCB I needed to create 3 different Do's (1 second, 2 seconds and 4 seconds). It was a bit of a stretch to create the 4s clip - so apologies this sounds slightly odd.
Very happy to hear any ideas or suggestions for improvements!
Which Do? (maybe which slide number)?
To make the timing accurate for the song, I had to artifically lengthen one of the Dos to make it a four count because the timing of this piece is:
Mi (2 count)
Re (2 count)
Do (4 count)
Do (1 count)
Do (1 count)
Do (2 counts)
This means that one of the Dos (the very long one) does sound odd as all I could think to do was to repeat part of the note to make it longer. I'm not sure what else to do!
Would it be better just to have a 2 count Do note and then leave a space for a few seconds instead?
Or was it another part of the song that sounded echoing?
