This product does not have step-by-step instructions on how to teach this song but is rather set up in a logical way that allows the teacher to use their expertise to guide students through the process of preparing, presenting, and practicing Re and Ta/Ti-Ti and Rest. Ultimately, however, the teacher must use their own knowledge of how to teach music to best serve their students.
