This
is Peery level one, practical lesson six.
Okay, so your assignment this week is out
of the LNM 1A Celebrate Piano book.
We're going to continue singing the middle
C song.
Can you sing it right now?
Start signing.
[MUSIC]
Are you able to match.
Do that one time everyday.
And we'll do L and M page 20 going up and
down.
Five times per day, marking with xs and
stars.
Page 21 five times per day, marking with
xs and stars.
And page 22 five times per day, marking
with Xs and stars.
So this week, you have three pieces to
play.
Be counting all of these out loud.
Play with the metronome or play with
somebody else so
that you can keep the steady beat.
Okay, students, out of the room.
Practice partner, here's how these pieces
go.
So, page 20, going up and down, starting
on two black keys.
Finger two sharing the two black keys
between the hands, so
finger two on the up, upper black key and
finger two left hand on the lower.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
One, one, one,
one, two.
That one is tricky.
Go slowly on it.
And then no pauses.
So as the left hand's playing, the right
hand has to be going right away to
the next group of black keys.
Let's do the duet on that one.
One, two, ready, go.
Right, left, right, left, right, left,
right.
Right, left, left.
Okay, so now onto page 21, Two, Three,
Four Walkabout.
Exercise number one, right hand on the
group of three black keys.
One, two,
ready, play.
One, two, one, two.
one, one, one, two.
Left hand, on the group of three black
keys.
One, two, ready, play.
One, two, one, two.
one, one, one, two.
Make sure as your child is watching.
Even as you get these learned really well,
eyes on music, not on hands.
Eyes can be on hands for muscular, and
should be on hands.
Eyes can be on hands and should be on
hands for our musical lessons.
But for practical, eyes on the music.
If you have trouble keeping your eyes on
the music, or have a child.
That has trouble.
You cover their hands up with the book so
that they learn to do this and not always
this.
Young people especially have fantastic
memories and fantastic ears, and
they will start looking at their hands and
never be looking at the music again.
And that will not be teaching them to read
the music, so make sure.
Eyes on the music.
Okay, let's go through page 22, Rocket
Ships.
Left hand, group of two black keys.
Right hand, group of three black keys.
One, two, ready play.
[MUSIC]
One, one, one, one, one, one.
Two, one, one, one, one, one, two.
[MUSIC]
Two, one, two, one, one one one
one one one one two one one one one one
two one two.
And that's it for this week.
