Hi Everyone!

These posts have been helpful to me. I also have students that can't seem to remember notes. Just yesterday I had a student who seemed to be doing ok, till yesterday's lesson, at which time she acted as though she'd never seen the notes before! After talking with the parents, I discovered she is not practicing. This seems to be an ongoing problem with other students too. They want to come for lessons but don't put any time into it during the rest of the week. Thanks for sharing.

Have also had that happened. It usually all comes down to a child not practicing regularly. I usually lay it out bluntly to the parents that this is a team effort and if they aren't going to get involved, we have reached an impasse.

TCW Resources has a game called The Note Nabber. I allow beginners to use a chart showing the names of just the landmark notes. You get to review note names each week and have fun with it! It's one of the most popular games in my teaching bag.
