Audiation--Red Balloons

You saw in class this week how we sang "Three Blind Mice" leaving out parts of the song and "singing them in our heads," instead of out loud.  This is called Audiation and is an important skill to develop as it is the precursor for singing harmony and composition.  You can practice this skill with any favorite songs while hanging out in the house or driving in the car.  Just remember to ask each time if they heard the music in their heads while they were being silent.

REMINDER:  Only send the bells with the students on the weeks when parents come.  This week is a drop-off week, so all they need are their homework booklets, with their completed homework assignment!

Hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend!  See you Wednesday!
