On June 7th, I attended a home school group program in which three of my piano students performed. We worked several months in preparation for this event and I was excited to see each student do a fabulous job!
Two of my students, in Level 2B, performed original arrangements of "America the Beautiful" and "My Country, 'Tis of Thee." One of the reasons I created these arrangements was to challenge them with additional hand movement beyond the five-finger position. This also expanded their note reading skills.
