Big note, landscape format is great for young and/or students with vision-related disabilities
Two versions included: one with (strategic) note names and one without note names
Single-line melody in five-finger position (G major) with no shared keys
Great way to introduce the concept of tied notes
Simple, harmonically lush, teacher duet included
Write some lyrics
Play the piece in different registers on the keyboard (do students like the piece played higher or lower?)
Have students “transpose” the piece by moving the hands to a different position. Don’t worry if you run into interval issues with accidentals in other tonal centers (this is a good lesson in and of itself)
If possible (if their feet can reach the floor, or you have a pedal extender) explore using the damper pedal (even just half-pedalling) through this piece.
