The Power of Personalizing Songs For Young Students

In a lesson this morning, I was showing 4 year old B to play a simple song, a variation on Brother John.  She loved it especially because I realized she didn’t have any brothers, but we could substitute her sister’s name in the song.  So what was Brother John became Sister Iris!  She was jumping up and down with joy and couldn’t wait to sing it for her mom and sister.  Such a simple way to create engagement and joy!

Whenever possible, I try to connect the material to the student with these kinds of personalizations.  Why does it have to be Mary Had A Little Lamb?  Why not Ashley? Or Rebecca?  Of course you will have to add in another note, but, how great to have an instant bond with your student.

This is one of the areas we cover in the online training course.  You can learn more about the Musicolor Method™  7-point framework and join the Teaching Fellows program here
