Repeat each of the following steps a number of times:

  1. Listen to the Good News audio while you follow the music notation with your eyes.

  2. While listening to the audio and reading the music notation, tap your foot to the beat and sing along.

    For example, whisper the count off (“One, Two, Three, Four”) at the beginning of the song and also the word “Rest” each time a quarter rest appears, but sing each note, “Too,” in the same pitch as the recording.

    You can sing this song as follows:

    One, Two, Three, Four  |
    Rest, Too, Too, Rest  |  Too, Too, Too, Too  |
    Rest, Too, Too, Rest  |  Too, Too, Too, Too  |
    Rest, Too, Too, Rest  |  Too, Too, Too, Too  |
    Too, Too, Too, Too  |  Too – – –

  3. Now test your music reading skills.  Without the audio, play the song on Coda by reading the music notation.   Play very slowly at first!  Remember to tongue each note:  “Too, Too, Too…”

  4. When you’re ready, read the music notation, and play Coda along with the audio.
