How are you doing? What is your favorite activities with your child?
In our Pedagogy class today we will learn how to work on the learning energy of your child.
We have to form healthy learning habits to build strong foundation for successful future today.
Attention of your child is energy.
The energy is just as important in the work of our attention as finances in supporting our life. The ability to correctly expend, conserve, and accumulate our energy is what drives our attention.
Having paid for the “basic expenses” of overcoming physical problems, attention has an opportunity to direct its remaining energy to solving problems “for the soul.”
The attention's investment into learning increases if its energy is replenished by successful execution of a prior task. It produces a natural, organic motivation to improve in one form of activity or another.
If attention’s further investment in a project leads to frustration, attention will borrow energy from will power. Will power is the opposite of cramming. Will power is a conscious personal effort to direct the energy of attention under conditions of frustration. It is directly connected to the student’s faith in his own abilities.
If your kid's attention succeeded to promote his independence, self-esteem, and ability to realistically assess his own strengths, the attention may submit to the will power and will gradually cope with the problem.
Look closely on advertisement pictures of piano students. They look anywhere else, but at the music score. If your child SEE what to do, his attention span gets more and more energy!
Continue to work on triads.
Try to play all the keys not alternately, but simultaneously, as shown in the video of our student. Improving the coordination of the three fingers of the right and left hand:
This module helps the player to memorize a corresponding note name for any line or space of the Bass and Treble staves.
Using the LEFT or RIGHT arrows, move the baskets to catch a note, represented as a fruit or flower bud, with a basket having the corresponding note name. Green and brown trees represent vertical Treble and Bass staff lines. Gradually they will change to normal horizontal thin black lines. Use the SPACE key to make notes fall faster into the correct basket. You have 90 levels and 10 different representations of the Bass and Treble staves to complete and finish the module.
Computer control keys
Be sure to switch Num Lock off if you use the number pad keys!
LEFT arrow - Move falling notes left or down.
RIGHT arrow - Move falling notes right or up.
Space key - Make note fall faster.
A - Switch the program to Alphabetic (A, B, C ...) note names
I - Switch the program to Italian (Solfeggio: Do, Re, Mi...) note names
Ctr-X - Exit the program.
Try to use the Left or Right arrow to move the closest correct basket to the fruit.
- Play several notes in a row correctly (the number depends of the module stage) and the program will switch to the next level of difficulty. You will get more points, but the notes will move faster. If you make two mistakes in a row, the module will switch to a lower level of difficulty.
This module develops the skills to recognize the corresponding note name for any line of the Alphabetical or Solfeggio note order to choose a correct note name. Thus, it trains another important skill - to relate one note to another and to easily read notes in forward or backward sequences.
An advanced student can finish this module in 40 minutes (21 minutes of module time), but beginners should start by only playing for a short time.
We recommend to play the module for 5 maximum 15 minutes of the game time. Do not forget to write the score down.
If your child is developing faster or slower than our plans suggest, we recommend writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to start working with our certified specialists.
