Practice Tip of the Week
Make up silly words to go with your Suzuki pieces. If you can sing your pieces on pitch you can play them on your instrument much easier!
Example: Go Tell Aunt Rhody
Go tell Aunt Rhody, John is very sick, Please tell the doctor, John is sick in bed. He had some popcorn, then some candy-floss, then peanut-butter on his bread. Go tell Aunt Rhody, John is very sick, Please tell the doctor, John is sick in bed.
