Write a Valentine’s Song is is a composing activity in 3/4 time for young beginners. I didn’t write in directions on this so that you may use it in different ways. Students can write in finger numbers or note notes. They can use left hand, right hand, or both. They can draw in bar lines if you wish and a double bar line at the end. In fact, you can use this as a rhythmic activity and not even bother to compose a tune.
If you use this to compose with a slightly older beginner, the next step would be to notate it on staff paper. I have some large size staff paper on my web site.
I have found that students often cannot complete both lines in the lesson. Sometimes I send it home to complete, or finish the next week.
