- Off to the Races
I love giving this piece to my younger students as well as older for sight-reading practice. It's perfect practice for nailing down whole notes and half notes. The teacher part drives the pieces and makes it super fun for both student and teacher!
I'm glad I got a Studio License of this piece, because lots of my students are enjoying playing it! I think that Studio Licenses are the ONLY way to go. Thanks!
One of the best investments I've made! I purchased the studio license, and use this for almost every student's trial lesson. They can easily play it in the first lesson, and the duet part makes them sound so good!
Love, love this piece! It's a favorite in my studio with young boys in particular! It's an engaging and catchy tune - one that they love to play.
I like the duet part that makes the piece alive...
This piece is a quick favorite of my beginner students! Their eyes light up when they realize they are playing a duet as well! Definitely a keeper for me!
I have used this with 6 students so far and all 6 have fallen in love with it! I love playing it with students who have learned the required few notes. A new studio staple!
Whether you need an exciting piece for a beginner or one to sightread at a lesson with a mid-elementary student, this is it! Rather than do our usual sightreading lesson for the day, I had my Level 2 elementary student sightread this at her lesson last week. The tricky part of this is counting out the whole and half notes (kid get impatient on those, don’t they?), but the teacher duet part is so exciting that the student felt the beat with no problem. This was a real confidence booster to this student! I asked her how she liked it and she said, “It was fun!”
How wonderful to have a great sounding duet to play with very beginning students!!! I played this as a sight reading piece with an elementary student, and we both loved it. I can’t wait to try it with my little littles! I plan to use this as a recital piece for one of my youngest students.
