George will help you to practise your Crotchets (Quarter Notes) and Quavers (Eighth Notes), whilst making nice, smooooth string crossings!

Look for the patterns in the music - is the rhythm different from line to line, or is it the same?

Each time you need to move to a higher pitched note in lines 1 and 3, move your arm smoothly downwards to get to the next string.

Each time you need to move to a lower pitched note in lines 2 and 4, move your arm smoothly downwards to get to the next string.

Make sure you anticipate each string crossing... don't leave it too late!
