TEACHING MUSIC TEACHERS OUR GAME SONGS FROM THE PLAY AND PLAY PIANO BOOK
"Over the River to Feed My Sheep" is a song found in the PLAY AND PLAY piano book for beginners. This song has the piano students reading and playing from the Grand Staff. It's also a fun game that incorporates improvisation movement. I recently conducted an all-day training for elementary music teachers in a Texas school district. I used this song to demonstrate how to teach the specific melodic concept, low la.
I found out that the teachers enjoyed the
game as much as my piano students.
