Right now he has her working on basic speed drills, paying attention to her part when playing a duet, slurring and learning more sharps and flats. The book she uses goes no higher than d in the staff. At home I help her with what the instructor has assigned her but we also do our own "lesson" If I am practicing say out of Arbans and she likes the way something sounds she will ask me to show her, so I wil play and she will immitate the fingerings without actually looking at the music. Lately the scales I have been playing get up to a above the staff which she can not hit yet, but f# or even g she can hit fine. I know the teacher does not have her at this range yet and I have not told him what she can hit. I do not want to step on his shoes or anything like that. Is she benefitting from what I am showing her or is it best for her to just go at the teachers pace. :?
