This funny old video, below, has actually the Yankee Doodle lyrics and also a good male singer happen them come life! Wait because that the introduction to be excellent - it"s precious it: 

After they play with the melody, you have the right to turn it right into a duet through adding an easy chords. Through you, the piano teacher, ~ above the bottom component (or secondo) and also them ~ above the height part, play through together favor this: 


Then shot it, still as a teacher/student duet, like this -- much much more energy in the music! (The bass staff reflects the left and also right hand playing open up chords one octave apart.) 


Then switch parts: allow them it is in the Secondo or chord part! 

First, have actually them play, through LH only, C chords all the way through the tune -- though the track really needs an F chord and the G chord, it will sound simply fine to a young musician through C chords only!

To help them save time, try using a conducting gesture -- a downward activity like a bouncing ball -- come compel a rhythmic response from them.

This is far an ext effective, I have found, than simply counting aloud.

Physical movement native the teacher seems to propel their hands to move in time.

After a main or much more of playing C chords only while girlfriend play the melody, have actually them pat -- again, left hand only -- the F and G chords also, together 4-beat chords.


Please scroll under the page for the download links.

Last of all -- this is the most fun -- show how come play "Left, Right, L, R," with each that the chords. 

Show them the page with chord and also slash icons (or just write on their original sheet... I write anywhere my students" music, usually v colored pens).

As for players, the slash icons make it very plain how many times to play the chords.

They will certainly love play in this rhythmic fashion with huge arm movements, and also it is straightforward kind of duet because that beginners to play together: all chords because that one piano player (no note-reading necessary) -- and also all melody because that the other.

I have put no fingering into this piece. After a discussion around "skips" and also "steps" (a talk you need to have actually again and again), they may not need any fingering at all.

Here is another Yankee Doodle video - same singer together the one above, however with fun pictures (unfortunately there space tiny skips in the sound indigenous time come time): 

Have fun with Yankee Doodle!
