The application of the basic principle stage now begins, as we progress and play with the
left hand. The fingers of the left hand will give us the sound pitch. This should be
explained to the students.
In this program, our starting point is the single sound, from which we will expand.
In the previous unit we expanded on the quality of sound duration - a quality which can

b. During the first 3 to 6 months we will play in the first position.
In order to play in the first position it is necessary to mark the position of the fingers

easily while he plays.
The left-hand fingers will be marked in numbers.

Notes: From the fifth grade on it is possible to do
the marking with the students. This will help them understand the concept of intervals and
later - the scale. It is possible to dedicate a lesson to constructing a stencil and have
every student or two match the correct intervals using a cardboard gauge.
