Secara level one musical lesson number 4.
This week we're gonna learn Secara section
c1 and d.
So we're finishing off the piece.
So your practice chart is going to look
You're going to have, Secara a, b, c, and
a1 five times per day,
marking it with a check or with a star.
And if it takes you, you know, if after
five days, you haven't been getting many
stars, you should do it for more than five
days and just move on when you're ready.
It's okay if it takes more than five days.
This is a big first piece to be learning.
But, but you'll be amazed, you'll be able
to do it.
Secara C1 and D should be on your chart,
and both should have FERN.
So we should practice with the FERN method
this week, going through.
Specifically, fingers, expression, rhythm,
So let's go through, first, Secara,
We learned C last time.
C1 is measures nine and ten, if you're
looking at your music.
Okay, so, let me play the right hand for
you tell me if this looks familiar here
Okay, so, you recognize that?
Exactly C, so right hand's really doing
nothing new for C one.
Left hand however is.
So left hand, we were back in here for
the b that goes before a c so we're gonna
have to do a big shift down.
It starts on e.
[SOUND] Finger two.
So let's just talk about fingers.
It goes two.
Now we're going to do that special
hitting the thumb after the finger two.
Alright let's try that.
Same note different finger.
And then it goes down to a three and a
Let's do that again.
Really focus on the hand position.
We've got to have good firm tips, no
thumbs sticking out.
Fingers, is where we focus on that.
So, here we go again, ready, go.
four [MUSIC] two.
[MUSIC] ,. one
[MUSIC] ,. one
three [MUSIC], four.
Let's talk about the expression.
Same thing as C, just a lift at the end.
I'll demonstrate it, hands together.
But you can play it, just hands, alone.
Until you're ready.
So my slow wrists moving off.
That gives it a nice breath.
In the piece and it makes the tone sound
really airy and beautiful.
The rhythm is just the same as B, C, C1,
all the same rhythms.
So, let's do the counting [SOUND] 1,
[SOUND] 1, [SOUND] 1, [SOUND] 1,
[SOUND] 1, [SOUND] fast, [SOUND] fast,
[SOUND] 1, [SOUND] 2.
And then the notes.
What's unusual about the notes in C1 is
that the right hand and left hand are
playing the same notes.
Did you hear that?
The left hand's playing the same
notes as right hand, it's just an octave
So left just start on an E lower than the
So the notes are on both hands, we can do
E, C, E,
F, E, E,
Okay, now let's go on to Section D,
it's really a short section.
It's in measures 13 and 14.
It's the last two measures of the piece.
So, let's start with the fingers.
Right hand thumb is gonna be on e.
In this position we're gonna use all
So, here are the fingers, it goes ready
next to five.
Five then four.
then two [MUSIC] then one.
And the left hand, look how easy this is.
Does that look familiar?
So it goes back to the section A notes.
So it's fingers two and four, then to one,
still holding down the four.
And then back down to a two.
we have what we call a retard.
And a retard is when we slow down.
So we have a slowing down, and then we
also have what we have a crescendo or
a swell and we're, that means that you're
going to start soft and get louder.
So let me show that in the right hand
Now we're loud here.
Loud, loud, loud, then back down to soft.
So it goes soft, soft, loud, loud, loud,
So I'm slowing down and playing my
One more time.
Here how much time I took before I played
So you can take a long time, and
if you look at the music there's also this
bird's eye here.
It's called a fermata, that means you can
hold that note as long as you want.
You can hold it for a couple years if you
It's no problem.
Then the left hand will
follow the same as your right hand in
And we'll end the piece with a really slow
wrist coming off and
slow coming into our laps.
And if you do this in a performance, oh,
the audience, they'll be captivated.
You'll have them in the palm of your hand.
They'll be, huh.
And you just wait.
And the mad aplausal started, and you'll
feel very proud of yourself, so that's
very something you should practice.
Okay so now the rhythm infer is we have
this rest at the beginning, so
let me play a little bit of a 1,
that we're coming into it
One, two, rest.
One, one, one, fast,
fast, one, slow down.
So it's just, you go right, right, left,
it's a little different than what we've
