One day, Mom was about to let Sam, the tabby cat outside. Before she opened the door, she looked down at him and said, “Sam, make sure you look both ways before you cross the street.”
Have you ever seen a cat look both ways to cross the street? Find out as you listen to this fun rote piece!

This piece is unique because you get both studio-licensed versions of the piece automatically.  An elementary level for strictly rote teaching.  Plus an early intermediate to intermediate level version that could combine rote and note reading teaching.

For each level/version of the song there are additional bonuses.  To help students, I’ve included the story, plus practice and performance tips for students.  To help you, there are teacher notes for adapting each level for student success.

What is a studio licence?

When you purchase “Sam’s Walk” you get a studio-licence PDF of the piece.  This piece is sent digitally via an email receipt.  If you have a multi-teacher studio, please contact Rosemarie directly for additional licences.  Thanks!

A studio licence is a great way to stretch your studio repertoire budget.  Purchase music once and use for years (even decades) with students you directly teach!  For online teachers, if you share the piece during online lessons, students must print immediately and not retain an electronic copy of the piece.

For more information on your studio licence, check out the Terms and Conditions page.

If you purchase a collection you will need a program to open zip files to access all pieces within the collection.

Should I print all pages for students?

Yes!  Each page is designed with students in mind.

  • Page 1: Cover art
  • Page 2: Description, tips for students to make it their own, terms of use
  • Page 3+: music
  • Last page: other music they may like

Students love a bit of cover art since it can help them get into the mood and story of a piece.   I’ve included ways to adapt or play with the music so students become part of the creative process.

The terms of use are there to educate students and their families about copyright law.  We know, but they may not realize what they are innocently doing may cause you to lose your studio licence.

Lastly, having other pieces at a similar level can keep students excited about what the next song in their musical journey can be!
