This
is Peery Habits Level One, Practical
Lesson Four.
So, this week, we're going to be using the
LNM.
Oh, excuse me, the Celebrate Piano Solos
book.
Different than our Lesson in Musicianship
book.
It's the one that looks like this.
Solos One.
We finished Unit One in LNM, and every
time we finish a unit,
in LNM we do a unit in Solos.
So, we're going to do a unit in Solos.
The Solos book has a lot of really fun,
more recital level pieces.
So, this week, your assignment is to play
Solos page two,
which is Tick-Tock, and page three, which
is Asian Wind Chimes.
Both pieces need to be practiced five
times every day,
marking either with an X or with a star,
and five days this week.
And after you've completed that, then you
can come back and play both,
play the duets with me.
Both of these pieces have really fun duets
so,
I will see you back in a week, after
you've done all your practicing.
So, parents, the students have left the
room.
And let's play through Page Two Tick-Tock.
You can play this through with me, and
also play the duet, so
that you can learn along.
Make sure you don't play the piece for the
child.
You can play at the same time.
You can count with them.
But please don't play the piece, otherwise
they will learn this with their ear.
So, here's page two.
Tick-Tock.
It's two black keys, both right hand and
left hand finger two right
hand on this lower black key, and finger
two left hand on the same one.
We're just working on keeping a steady
beat.
So, one, two, ready, go.
Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick tock,
tick-tock.
Just keeping the steady beat.
Now, if you're a student, if you always
wanna count each time continuously,
five times is a really easy [LAUGH] pace.
So, you can kind of modify how many times
they play it per day, or
how long you count it.
So, we don't want anybody going crazy of
playing this [INAUDIBLE] [SOUND]
[LAUGH] Just as long as they're keeping a
but here's the duet.
One, two, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Okay, now page three, Asia Wind Chimes.
Asia Wind Chimes starts right in the
middle, on the two black keys.
And this is a fun one to put the damper
pedal down, which is the far right pedal.
[MUSIC]
So it keeps the sound going.
So, if you're child's too small and can't
reach the pedal you can put it down for
them, or depending on how small your child
is, sometimes they can kinda stand and
play the pedal, and the piano at the same
time.
[LAUGH] So, however is fun for them.
But, this is how Asia Wind Chimes goes.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Going up every
single black key, all the way up to the
top.
[MUSIC]
Once we've reached the top,
we come back down.
Again, we're really just focused on beat
this week.
[MUSIC]
If you can keep nice and steady, though.
[MUSIC]
That's what we're going for.
And now we're going to add the duet part.
Because the duet part is just the left
hand, I'm gonna play along your part too,
so you can hear how it goes together, but
play the,
your part, in my right hand very softly.
So, here's how it goes.
One, two, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
It's really fun to improvise, and just
play anything on the black keys.
[MUSIC]
It always sounds really nice,
no matter what keys you play.
So that's fun, if your child wants to play
around on the black keys with the pedal,
and just play anything.
That's also a really fun one to do while
you're learning Asian Wind Chimes.
So, have a great week on these pieces, and
I will see you at the next lesson.
[MUSIC]
