Music Skills and Playing Instruments
It is important to keep practicing music skills such as rhythm reading, critically listening to quality music, and playing the piano or any instrument. These skills take lots of repetition to improve in and if you don’t do it for several weeks, you will go backwards.
We have been able to use musicplayonline.com to practice rhythm reading and for our Grade 3’s to keep up their recorder skills. Many students have a piano at home, but those who do not have been able to use virtual piano apps on a phone or tablet to keep practicing. Finally, in our Google Hangouts or through other shared links, we have been listening to some quality music and sharing our critical analysis.
