Playing 'Hot Cross Buns'

Hello kids, mums and dads! πŸ˜ƒ

This has been the second week of the course and we have introduced the kids to the song that we will be working on: 'Hot Cross Buns'.

In this week's blog we teach you how to play it.

Using one finger, the pointer one, we will learn how to play this easy 3 notes piece.

These 3 notes are C πŸ’š , D ❀️ and E πŸ’™. To find them on the piano just look for the group of 2 black keys. The 3 white keys underneath are C, D, E, in that order.

Hot Cross Buns consist of 5 lines or phrases.

Line 1 - E πŸ’™, D ❀️, C πŸ’š - pressing one time each note.

Line 2 - E πŸ’™, D ❀️, C πŸ’š - pressing one time each note. This line is exactly like the first one.

Line 3 - C πŸ’š, C πŸ’š, C πŸ’š, C πŸ’š - on the third line we press C 4 times!

Line 4 - D ❀️, D ❀️, D ❀️, D ❀️ - here we press D 4 times!

Line 5 - E πŸ’™, D ❀️, C πŸ’š - the last line is exactly as the first and the second.
