P3 - B2


  • With guidance, tune the non-wire strings, using the sound of an octave and a fifth as an aural measurement

Continue to involve learners in identifying whether strings are in tune, sharp or flat when compared with the sound of the teacher’s strings.

Learners develop this skill at different stages and therefore some learners will still not have fully grasped this by Programme of Study 3. Continue to support them with careful questioning and demonstration.

Help learners to begin to tune the non-wire strings.

Ensure that learners recognise that levers are all in a non-contact position for tuning (and for pedal harps, pedals in flat position).
