She like playing the songs with both hands.
She easily gets bored with the GKG.
What is the proper finger placement for the GKG?
The finger stickers with the numbers 1-5, re there fingers supposed to be in that placement when playing GKG or all the other songs for that matter?
Is it like if he note is on the right side of the tree you use the RH and LH if its on the left?
What does R1 mean? Do I press R then 1 or press both together?
Do i press it on all the songs, or just when specified?
What does the right most score or tempo mean?

For the New Academy:
Where do I make a progress diary? On the blog, messages?
When uploading videos, what do you mean by labeling it 'Soft Mozart: Semester 1/13' then 'Sem 2/13'? Which semester is she now?
How do I label her first video?
Is the evaluation/grading monthly?

Oh, yes! I see the problem here :P Are you using music money?

- can sing do to do music alphabet song chant
- can match solfege icon cards

I am happy to read that. Good job!

W2:
GKG: 30s = 7, 14, 9.


This is the stage of attention span development. Keep working! Consistency will improve the focus skills and score!

GP: HCB = 11/15 T 48


Time shows that coordination is in beginning stage. This is normal. Right now the goal is to keep left number close to 15.

- sings notes instead of pressing keys
- surprised he can recognize the solfege when he watched for the first time the ear training melody 1 ( YouTube) do re do do re mi


Great ear! We will use it as point of support for the further development.

Andrea - Prep Level C

W1:
GKG 2:00 = 265, 258, 204 (RH)


Very good score!

GP:
MB R1= 22/23 L1=12/13 P1=32/36
R= 22/23 T11 L= 12/13 T7 P= 35/36 T19
SS P= 61/67
R1= 34/44 L1=23/23 P1=65/67
R1=40/44 T28 L1= 22/23 T21 P1=61/67 T52


It seems like well developed fine motor skills to me. Any plans to place video for more information?

P=62/67 T32


She like playing the songs with both hands.
She easily gets bored with the GKG.


We have to let her know about her progress. Guess Key game is very important for her ear - key recognition development. Keep notes and show her, how many more points did she earn each time. Ask her to sing the notes names.

What is the proper finger placement for the GKG?


Finger # could be any. Ask her to play with nice rounded hand and with a tip of her finger.

The finger stickers with the numbers 1-5, re there fingers supposed to be in that placement when playing GKG or all the other songs for that matter?


No! These numbers reflect numbers on lines of Grand Staff.

Is it like if he note is on the right side of the tree you use the RH and LH if its on the left?


No! Use 1 hand at a time. If decided Right hand, stick with this. The same with Left hand. The goal is to play game fast and make more points at the same time frame.

What does R1 mean? Do I press R then 1 or press both together?


R stands for Right hand. 1 is the vertical presentation with colors and pictures. Elementary presentation.

Do i press it on all the songs, or just when specified?


When specified.

What does the right most score or tempo mean?


This means how many seconds were 'lost'. Ideal time should be 0. But only machine can do that :P Our goal is to keep time on the right part of the screen down.

For the New Academy:
Where do I make a progress diary? On the blog, messages?
When uploading videos, what do you mean by labeling it 'Soft Mozart: Semester 1/13' then 'Sem 2/13'? Which semester is she now?
How do I label her first video?
Is the evaluation/grading monthly?


We are still in building new Academy process. Please, feel free to place all your videos here. When you upload the video(s) on You Tube, please, write it in the description.

Thanks for the reply Hellene. We haven't used music money, I will try it with them. Andrea, who is 5 can use the piano guide and I think will like the music money, but Nio, 2y2m still needs the stickers and I don't think he'll get what the music money is for, but we'll still try it. What we are using right now is that I printed out and just used the upper half of the piano guide and laminated it, then just put the long laminated strip on top of the piano keys,just below the black keys. The problem is his fingers are just limited on the 1" tip of the keys. I am planning to punch them into circles then stick them to the keys individually, at least it's laminated, if he peels it I can still stick it again. Any suggestions of adhesives, etc that won't damage the keys? Yes, I will upload videos of them next week.
