The Let’s Play Music Bridge program continues the group experience for LPM graduates for an additional year. Students will learn about the new yellow chord (the V7 chord) along with many other important concepts, skills, symbols, and labels that will help ensure that their abilities don’t get “lost in translation” as they progress.
- fun and familiar songs
- rhythm & counting up to sixteenth notes
- scales, chords, and arpeggios in major and minor keys
