I have a student in My First Piano Adventures who learned the first 8 measures to Ode to Joy and really loved it. Now that he has progressed, he asked to play the rest of the melody, so I wrote it out for him. There are skips in the third line that are sometimes a challenge, but he was up to it. We circled the skips and practiced them in the air and on the piano cover. His Mom played the symphony for him and now he is a 5 year old Beethoven fan!
