Red Balloons.

Today was Truman's first day of Let's Play Music.
This semester he will be in the Red Balloons class.
How appropriate, they each got a red balloon today at the end of class :)
He will have his same teacher as last year, Miss. Emily, who taught him and Bodie Sound Beginnings.
One of his first 'theory' assignments was to color these balloons red as they go up, up, up!
This is a picture of the solfeggio hand signs that the kids learn as the sing do, re, me, fa, so, la, ti, do.

In Red Balloons they are preparing to learn to play the keyboard.  They also learn to; correctly imitate and identify rhythmic patters, recognize steps, skips and leaps on the staff and sing ascending and descending patterns, keep a steady beat and sing in tune!
