Student Highlight: OK KO's it!
Today's highlight focuses on 5 year old Olivia, who after only a month of lessons is already composing her own song!
Yes, it's only one note, but it introduces left/right coordination, and introduces the grand staff as ONE UNIT with a middle point at middle C. This will be very helpful down the road when she starts reading more complex songs, not to mention building a love of making her own music! Let's have a big hand for Literacy! Yes!
When I was learning to play I always would ask "Why do I only have to play their notes? Why can't I play my notes?" I never really forgot that, and after all these years composing and improvising, I try to get my students to take ownership in their music right away, and give an outlet to their creativity from the very outset. Great job Olivia!
