drmfs and dotted quarter eighth practice

Today you'll sight sing a short section from a Mozart piano sonata.   It has the familiar dotted quarter eighth pattern and also a small range of notes (drmfs).  I think you might recognize this piece.  Listen as you follow the notation. Listen for the dotted quarter eighth pattern in other songs that you hear throughout the day.  See if you can tap the beat and rhythm at the same time or you could say the rhythm and tap the beat.   Also try to sing the tonic every time you hear it in a song.
