Next, I showed them how to hold their mallets so the head of the mallet tips toward the floor. They need to have thier palms down toward the floor.
With their mallets at a 90* angle, they play each note, following the sticking (R - right & L - Left) in their book. Play page 4 - #2, #4 & #6. #6 might be more challenging as they are moving their mallets on the keys. Saying notes before they play - then say sticking as they play.
Please make sure they are playing the correct bars - F, Eb & D. They are the smaller bars to the right. Encourage them to look at their book/notes and not their mallets while they play.
