With the introduction and utilization of each format, all grades will be on grade level in as little as six weeks. When ever possible, we recommend using lower grade level songs to introduce new concepts, making the reading secondary to the concept. Transferring this to grade level selections will challenge both the concept and reading abilities.

As always, you have complete freedom to choose the selection you feel works within your seasonal or curriculum objective. As reading abilities improve, your song selection should reflect the need to challenge each groups growth. Songs can be chosen for their keyboard fingering or related center enrichment; learning to read a five finger keyboard exercise makes learning to play easier!
