Product Description

Printables & Audio for Unit 2 (Lessons 21-40) will build upon the foundation laid in Unit 1 to help students expand their growing music reading skills and knowledge of music theory. All 51 pages of worksheets and song sheets were designed by Joseph Hoffman to reinforce, expand, and deepen the learning in each video lesson.

 

The Listening Album is another important part of the learning process, and is something that Mr. Hoffman asks his students to listen to every day. This album features fun and beautiful settings of all the songs students will learn at Hoffman Academy. By listening often to this album, students become thoroughly familiar with the music, enabling the lessons to progress at a faster, more confident pace.

 

The Practice Album features fun accompaniment tracks to play along with as you practice. A great way to develop rhythmic ability, while also learning to improvise! With styles ranging from rock to jazz to reggae to folk, these accompaniments will make each practice session a fulfilling musical experience.

 

The Parent’s Guide will provide you with instructions for making piano practice time effective and successful. Excellent progress on the piano requires daily practice. However, children usually need guidance from a parent to get the most out of their practice time. The Parent’s Guide will give you the information you need to become a successful Practice Partner and Coach to your child as they begin their journey into piano playing.

Additional Learning Benefits of the Practice Album

Students can get a lot of value from reviewing old songs every day. It helps build confidence, musical memory, and agility. However, sometimes students can get bored of doing the same songs again and again, and it’s easy to start sounding sloppy with too many repetitions. This common problem can be easily solved with the Practice Album! Having a track to play along with encourages students to always keep a steady beat, and to play with precise rhythms. It will also help develop musical phrasing and expression.

 

Improvisation

Another benefit of the Practice Album is that is provides frequent opportunity for a student to improvise, in other words, learning to make up your own melodies, spontaneously, on the spot. Using the Practice Album, students will get to explore the creative side of music making. For example, with the Chocolate in C track, the student first plays Chocolate in its original form 2x, then the student has 8 measures to improvise. Then, on cue, the student plays Chocolate 2 more times. Frequent practice with improvisation helps students to realize that music is a creative form of expression that they can engage in at any age and any level. Plus it’s a lot of fun!

    From Australia – To find an American on YouTube (where we discovered Joseph) who doesn’t sound like Kermit The Frog and to be such an interesting and professional teacher is rare. Joseph Hoffman is a one in a million teacher. Happy to support Hoffman Academy

    My son loves the materials for unit 2, which he decided to purchase with his birthday money. He really liked having the sheet music, and loved playing with the heartbeat mat. He says he would have been “missing out” if he hadn’t purchased unit 2. (:

    These worksheets have been a wonderful help to my 9 year old daughter, who is enjoying Hoffman lessons so much! She takes her worksheets and has “music class” with her younger siblings(2,4 & 6) so all of my kids are learning timings on the heart mat!
