CKQC026: Transposing a ‘Skip to My Lou’ duet for Halloween

You might have seen us working on this duet in quick clip no. 11. This is a fantastic way to build your students’ listening skills during their buddy time.

This lesson was just before Halloween, so I decided to spice things up a bit. This simple trick of turning a major piece into a minor one might seem simple to us, but for students it’s pretty magical.

How can changing just one note change the whole flavour of the piece?!

Make sure to bookmark this idea for next Halloween, or just the next time you need an extra layer to add to a lesson. Students love minor and they get a real kick out of the magic of transposing.

What are quick clips?

Colourful Keys Quick Clips are all about giving you a taste of what my lessons are actually like – in action.

I certainly don’t claim to be an expert, and I don’t have all the answers. I just know how much seeing real teaching with real students has helped me to grow and improve as a teacher.

Let me know what you think!

I hope you had fun watching this Colourful Keys Quick Clip.
