Young Beginner’s Course Term 3 – Lesson 2

Lesson was attended on Saturday afternoon.

No new piece. We revised the piece that they learnt last Saturday. The good news was, Yvette could read the note and play the piece by herself. Phew!

Plenty of theories which Yvette loves it.

Still no craft for this lesson. Plenty of kids were crying. Apparently most are unfamiliar faces. One of Yvette’s classmate mum was inside the class. Her child was still not able to adapt to this new environment.

And the video I got from her classmate’s mummy.

Young Beginner’s Course Term 3 – Lesson 1

This lesson was attended on Sat but I have decided to publish on Sun.

Too bad, she wasn’t very attentive or I would say she was really restless when it was time for keyboard time. She got scolding from me and she cried so loudly in class. I am glad we were in the class where we know each other well and I don’t feel so bad when Yvette was throw tanturm.

Other than this “mishap” she enjoys the lesson very much.


The art work for minin. She learnt dotted minim – a new note.


She started to learn small box.


Here’s the theory in the sticker book she loves.


Finally the piece she refuse to play in class. (I really don’t have much problem to get her practice all these songs she learnt in school at home. She simply just don’t like to play on the keyboard in school. SIGH!!)

No more parents accompanied class for Yvette. Finally a year hard work from me, Yvette is able to blend in the class very well. She was there first. She started with books then moved on to the toys. I found that going there early indeed helps her to warm up.

From far, I could tell she has no problem all by herself. C and G (her pal in music class) joined her in this class too. I love to see all these girls grown up together as most likely Yvette and G will be the only child in the family.

Young Beginner’s Course Term 2 – Lesson 10

arrr… just notice I didn’t have even pen down this post. Anyway, it is a revision lesson. They didn’t do much. C didn’t come to the class. It was pouring and we couldn’t get a cab too. In the end, we switch to bus and we were late for lesson.

Yvette dozed off on the bus and really reluctant to open her eyes during lesson. It was G and there were a little boy who sat in the there responded to Teacher Elaine.

They did this piece in the class and I did this with Yvette a few weeks before the class ended.

Young Beginner’s Course Term 2 – Lesson 9

Getting Yvette to practice is getting harder. I found a way to getting her learning the notes with me just by playing the CD and reading the notes with her. Although she was reluctant to play in class but luckily she is still willing to practice with me.

They learnt another new piece again today. And it is getting harder.


Using left and right hands to play this piece need a lot of co-ordination. As Yvette learns, I learn too.

But she loves theory. Done all by herself.

Haha.. I know this is a bit not right but I am trying to keep up in Dec as such I decided to pen in this post while trying to fill in the gap. I must say attending this enrichment class has add on to her interest in Chinese and the lesson is really value for money. (I guess I have emphasized this point again and again.)

Anyway, this is last lesson of term 3. This term they are learning Animals and Frog is the last animal for this term.



The craft for this term is really interesting and I really heart the frog as much as Yvette. She is coping well and from time to time I did see she is trying to put in effort to “detach” from me.

We will be taking 4 weeks break after this lesson. And I am so happy Gwyn and Crystal are joining her. I hope she will continue to love this class with new accompany – her friends.
