One of my littler students proudly informed me today that she had volunteered to play violin with their class. They were going to sing ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ in German and she was going to play the melody with them on the violin.
One slight problem (only very minor)…we haven’t started fingers yet. We’re nearly there, but we had to get the bow playing on the correct string first ;D I wasn’t going to let a minor detail like that get in the way of this child’s confidence though!
We did a crash course on the First Finger on the violin today, and I have given her this to practice at home:-
I love Sibelius! I can get huge notes, and because the notes are huge, it looks even easier. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is NOT that easy! At least not when you have three fingers you have to find homes for. This version means that you can get by with knowing where the first finger has to go, and the class/teacher/parents can sing the rest of it. Much easier!
I’ve got my fingers (and toes and eyes) crossed that it will work.
