When Emily started to learn the Alberti Bass, she learned the broken chords in houses. She now knows six different houses: Emily's House(CGEG), Addison's House (BGDG), Olivia's House (CAFA), Frog's House (BGFG), Dog's House (CGC), and Cat's House (CEC). Now we are learning songs in 3/4 time: we are replace houses with mountains. We start climbing up the mountains: CEG. Emily's Mountain: CEG and Addison's Mountain: (BDG). I like the idea of mountains because we are climbing up the keyboard on the piano. I love Cuckoo--and love hearing Emily play it with two hands on the piano! We should be able to tackle Allegretto 1 with this same concept! It is almost easier than Cuckoo because we will always be climbing up the mountain--never walking down!
Cuckoo, Cuckoo: Climb up the mountain
Calls from the tree top: walk down the mountain, then climb back up!
Calls from the wood: we go for a walk with our fingers through the forest.
Let us be singing: Climb up Addison's Mountain
Let us be dancing: Climb up Emily's Mountain
Come down to me: make a big leap then walk back down.
