Adagio Teaching Tip
1. Play the song as student tiptoes around the studio on beat downbeat of each measure.
2. Sing some repetitious lyrics with some extra expression on the long notes
"A daaaaaaaaaaaa gi oooooooooooo Play Slooooooooooooow,"
Adagio play slow
Adagio, Adagio, Adagio Play slow.( Repeat)
3. Divide up the lyrics having the student sing "Adagio" and teacher sing "Play Slow"
For a contrast then play "Ramblin'Rails" by Melody Bober (FJH Federation Favorites Book 1) adding the lyrics "In a race your LEGs run quickly aLEGro means fast" to the first few lines.
Can you say that tongue twister 3 times fast?
