Learn your first nursery rhyme


Preschool Piano Lesson learning the nursery rhyme “Hot Cross Buns” incorporating WunderKeys Piano for Preschoolers and Preschool Prodigies with solfege.
Middleton 🐭 mouse (3rd finger)

Pointer 🐼 panda (2nd finger)

Thumbelina 🐘 (thumb)


The idea is that the preschooler places their three fingers over the solfege below:-

mi (yellow)

re (orange)

do (red)
In other words, place their middleton mouse (third finger) over the E, then their pointer panda (second finger) over the D and their thumbelina (thumb) over middle c.
They will then play either their third finger, second finger or thumb, according to the order below.

3 – 2 – 1

3 -2 – 1

1 – 1 – 1 – 1

2 – 2 – 2 – 2

3 – 2 – 1

We started by tapping our fingers on the table.

Then we played the desk bells, yellow, orange and red, as well as the xylophone.

Then we moved across to the piano to play the notes on the piano.

This is a nice and easy piece to play on the piano, perfect for beginners, particularly preschoolers.

Happy practising!
