Over the years, I have tried anything that exists on the planet, with only average success, until in desperation, I started colouring the Cs red and the Fs blue.
Mel I’m so glad you posted this here. I’ve thought it was a great idea since you first posted it.
I have one of Bonnie Mohr’s music books called “Colorful Christmas Carols for the Harp”. She has all the C’s & F’s colored in on the small harp arrangements. It has helped me tremendously when I was starting to learn the bass clef.
Oops! Instead of Merrily…, the tune I spelled out in numbers, above, read London Bridge is Falling Down. Sorry about that.
Patricia, don’t worry, I can’t imagine that anybody didn’t pick that up immediately.
