Program Notes

A Long Song and a Tall Song is an experiment. Young students, even those who have been taking lessons for some time, often struggle to decode and read music. One fundamental issue often overlooked is the necessary process of reading music from left to right and top to bottom. If you have students who struggle with how to look at music, try teaching them this piece. The second page of this piece is meant to be a craft for students and teachers to use together. The systems of the second page should be cut up as noted and taped together from left to right, matching the numbers at the extreme margins of the page.
