Young Beginner’s Course Term 2 – Lesson 6

Finally gotten all these books from the teacher. All these books are going to last Yvette a few years.


And Yvette loves this book so much.


She loves to revise this book herself and constantly asking me to do this book with her. Luckily I don’t understand music theory, so I can’t really help her too.

They learnt this today.


And this.


Yvette is someone who loves theory a lot. When teacher Elaine wants to teach Theory, she will be the first one to cheer!

I was trouble by her fingering when we were back home practicing after the last lesson two weeks back. This problem was somehow solved. She has shown improvement this week and I was happy with her progress. Let hope her interest in music continue to grow!

  1. Jacob also uses this book in music school for theory. We never do more than assigned though. ;D Not so hardworking.

    The reason why I passed you that image link earlier is bc I don’t understand the notes you wrote. on that page … er….

    Semibreve -> “Ta Hole very long” (?!)
    Minim – > “Ta Hole”(?)

    Abit funny to see, that’s all. Is it referring to the “hole” or did the teacher mean “To Hold very Long”(to hold for 4 counts), and the minim is “to hold” (to hold for 2counts)???

    • Haha… Sam I don’t know. When the teacher told us, I am the only mother keep laughing. Look like very wu zhi!!!

      Well, I think your eplaination sound correct although the teacher never explains much.

      Anyway, thanks for all the links. I will read them. IF i really need further help.. will call you. HEHE!

      • Yah lor – kinda funny. HAHAH!

        Anyway, those Kodaly Rhythm syllable names are not exactly commonly known, so I suppose all the other parents are just trying not to show their ignorance. *hehe*. . I only know of it now with Jacob, and it was my neighbour (a music teacher) who told me that those names come from the Kodaly method.
