is Peery Habits Level 1, Musical Lesson 7.
So last week, you started 16 Century mark,
section A,
continue to practice that this week.
You want to do it five times per day,
marking an x or
a star if you do all the steps of Fern at
the same time.
And we're going to move on to section A1.
A1 is covered in measures five, six,
seven, and eight.
And it also happens at the end of the
piece, measures 21, 22, 23, and 24.
So it happens twice, just like section A
Section A1 is a lot like A, in fact it
starts just like A, just an octave higher.
So here's where we start at A, here's
where we're gonna start A1.
Still on the G and the D.
The finger numbers are the same so the
left hand five, one, one, five.
Now in measure seven are the next two
measures, the notes change a little bit so
do the fingers.
So, we're still going to want that third
finger on the B flat.
And the fingers are going to be four,
three, two, one.
So just going down after the five, four,
three, two, one.
Left hand was here, it's gonna shift down
the two outside fingers are gonna shift
down, so now you're on F and C, and you're
gonna play one five on those two notes and
then shift back up and play one five on
those two notes.
[SOUND] So we'll do, 'kay now your
expression last week we learned pops,
I know you've been practicing them great.
Okay, so it's the same thing.
Pop, pop, pop, pop.
We also learned our drop float.
We're doing another drop float but it's
faster. Cuz last time it was drop float,
Now it's going to go by quickly in the
right hand today.
It's gonna go drop float.
Drop, float.
So my wrist is still dropping down a
little bit.
And it's very soft, if you're hearing a
soft sound on the A, on the last note,
that's when you know you're doing your
drop float correct.
So it's loud to soft.
And that's the expression, so pop, pop,
pop, pop, drop, float.
Then we're, drop loud on that last one.
Like you're falling asleep, right?
So drop, float, drop.
Let's talk about the rhythm.
Same rhythm as last time starting out so,
ready, go.
One, one, one, one, then it goes fast,
fast, one.
One, two.
So let's do those last two little bits
Ready, go.
Fast, fast, one.
One, two.
And then the notes starts out the same,
you already know that part.
So let's go over the notes in left hand.
[SOUND] F and C, then goes to G and E.
Right hand after the pops,
it goes C, B-flat, A, and then G.
I think you're becoming an expert at these
pops and the drop float.
So practice and work hard on section A and
A1 this week.
