EDCI 306A: Mid-term Evidence of Growth

Over the course of the semester I’ve been following my musical growth plan. According to my plan, I was supposed to reach and complete page #33 (introduction of the Grand Staff) of Alfred’s Lesson Book – Level 1A. I’ve accomplished that goal, which means I’m on track to finish my musical growth plan on time!
Learning the keyboard has been very challenging for me considering I’ve never played an instrument outside of my elementary classrooms. However, so long as I take my time and follow each step laid out by the book, it all makes sense eventually. I really like how the book has eased me into reading music off the Grand Staff. I started off by numbering my fingers and then playing the black keys accordingly. Next, I learned the Middle C and could then play the rest of the white keys. Now, I write the white key names (A, B, C, D, E, F, G) in the staff to help me remember while I play the short musical pieces.
Included in the rest of this blogpost is sheet music and video footage of my progress leading up to and completing page #33. Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed viewing and listening to my progress. These videos were an excellent way for me to reflect on my learning journey. Until next time!
