How to teach lesson 1

Since all of this is probably new to you, it’s best to load the lesson and give it a try before you mentor your child.
Here are the steps:

  1. Load the app
  2. Press the rabbit button and watch
  3. Play the seven “notes” on the big animal keys
  4. Repeat 2 – 3 times and don’t speed!

The desired goal

Music is more than just playing notes. Ideally, you (the parent and mentor) will encourage and praise your child as she/he works trough the lessons. If your child is able to play this first lesson, then you are off to a good start.

After a little break, try the bonus lesson. If there are issues then you can slowly demonstrate once. Regardless of how today (day one) goes, end the lesson with praise and encouragement and promise a new lesson tomorrow.

Supplemental information

Today’s lesson is made up of two “notes”. They are the C and D note.
C = Camel
D = Dolphin
You must ALWAYS refer to the note (animal) names as instructed.

The tempo is the same a playing speed. NOAH has two presets. Turtle (for younger children) and rabbit (for older children). Please listen as your child plays the lessons and make sure that the tempo is slow but steady.

We are happy to help. Just contact us and we will provide additional suggestions.

Mentoring a young child can be an unforgettable experience for both, teacher and student.
To maximize the learning experience, it’s best if you:

  • Find a good time to play
    Avoid a slot that competes with the TV or other interruptions. Mornings are best.
  • Praise and encourage
    A good teacher praises and encourages at the right moment. It’s not always easy but the results are amazing.
  • Ask questions and listen
    Take a 1 – 2 minute break in between the repeats and talk about the animal names. Ask your child to teach them to you. 🙂 After all, teaching means learning twice.
    The right question teaches more than the lesson itself.
  • Be patient
    This is the most important point. Every skill is based on repetitions (which we call practicing). Not every day is the same so be patient. It will all work out. 🙂
