Vision (Grade 2) by Peter Sciaino published on 2019-05-01T18:42:45Z Having an early Vision of success in any endeavor can make accomplishing goals possible! The practice of "Growth Mindset" is a trend in education that pushes students to have confidence in their ability to learn through positive thinking and proper work ethic. This concept has long been a successful path in the pursuit of music making as well. While rehearsing VISION, this idea should be communicated to young students. The introduction presents an uplifting and warm harmonic setting that represents the positive atmosphere that would be critical in most any pursuit. The bold opening melody and stately supporting rhythmic structures convey the importance of confidence and should be played with pride. The piece leaves the listener with a feeling of hope as the traded eighth note figures and powerful melodic phrases provide a VISION of teamwork and positive energy.
