Program Notes

This arrangment of Row Row Row Your Boat for easy piano is perfect for new music students. It is important for a student to listen to this tune as often as possible so that they will become familiar with the feel of 3/4 time. The most common mistake that is made when reading this piece independantly is lapsing into 4/4 meter, since it is more familiar than the 3/4 dance rhythms. Be sure to sing the rhyme out loud, and encourage the student to do so as well. Counting the rhythm with numbers can also be helpful, but remember that there is no substitute for simply singing the song reapeadtly until it becomes known.

Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.
