m3838 Posted March 12, 2009 Share Posted March 12, 2009 Hi. I'm asking for help from some professionals in psychology and those with experience with teaching young children. My kid just can't memorize the stave. We tried picture books, coloring schemes, and other tricks. My latest was to represent the stave with 4 pencils. It works very well, when she looks at pencils, and F,A,C,E that are glued by G,C,D is easy. But then, when she's looking at the stave, it's a blank stare. An interesting observation: she will always mix A and C. Between second D and E she'll mix them too. She can find notes on the keyboard with no problem. When the stave is clearly showing ascending melody, she'll play descending and vice versa. Her math is bad, but her spelling is beyond average, at 7 she is reading fluently in English and pretty fast in Russian, excellent drawer, great voice and definite talent for dancing. She is small for her age, malnurished and suffers from eczema (no astma, nock nock nock). Has excellent stamina, despite her small statue, and generally is very loud, happy, "singy", smyly, dancy and likes to tell everybody how much she loves them. A chatter box and social butterfly. All the info above is for those in the health field, to gather some clues and rule out some common cliches. I would really appreciate help and my little Danielle will appreciate it too. Thanks.
