About the lesson​

By now, playing notes that are located right next to each other should no longer be challenging. Skipping a note might at first be a bit of a challenge and if so, then use the slower turtle playback button. To maximize the lesson, repeat the main as well as the bonus lesson each 3 times.

Bonus Lesson

The bonus lesson moves the skipping notes towards the ending of the melody which makes for a nice ending. Be generous as you praise and if a little chat break is needed, take 1 – 2 minutes to rest up a bit. A lot has been achieved and both of you are doing an amazing job.

Good news

Some parents worry that they might teach something the wrong way. Relax. Noah is just the beginning and the 2-series of courses reinforce everything a second time. If you have managed to bring your child/student to this point then you definitely have a gift for teaching because it is not easy to motivate children every day.
Sill, you did and regardless how hard it is/was, the rewards are huge. Creative children have a big advantage.
