Peery Habits level one,
practical lesson nine.
So we're going back to the LNM1A book, and
this week,
you're going to learn pages 27, 28, 29,
And 31.
So page 27 will get a five per day mark on
your chart.
So mark it with x's or stars.
Page 28 is a written page so that one will
be a completed mark on your chart.
Page 29 is also written work with a
completed mark.
Page 30 is a piece you play but it's quite
repetitive so
you can just do that one time per day five
days of the week, one time per day.
And page 31 is another piece so you're
going to do that five times per day for
five days for the week.
You're also doing your interval song.
Let's hear it.
Do, Si.
Did you get it?
Make sure you do that everyday before you
touch anything.
Your ear will get better and better.
Okay, so that's it for the student.
I will see you after five days, and now.
Here are the answers to all the pieces.
So, we'll start with page 27, left right,
both workout.
Left hand on this top note of three black
keys, right hand on two black keys.
One, two, ready go.
One, one, one, one, one, one, one, one,
One, one, one, one, one, one, two.
Exercise number two.
Right hand starts.
Ready, go.
One, one, one, two.
One, one, one, two.
One, two, one, two.
One, one, one, two.
So page 28 and 29 are the written pages.
They're pretty self explanatory.
We're going to start ready notes on the
staff now,
instead of just in those black key
So we're going to move to the white keys
and learn about line notes and
space notes.
And directions, note directions.
This is where it gets really important
that you don't write in finger numbers for
the pieces, and you don't write in letter
Just a quick reminder.
I know I talked about this at the
beginning, but
this is where it's really going to start
to be tempting.
So instead of thinking of letter names or
finger numbers, always talk about.
How the music is moving, what direction.
So is the note going up, or down, or
staying the same?
And for right now it will only move up,
down, or
stay the same by what they call seconds.
So, notes on music staff, on the music
is measured, and it's called an interval.
[SOUND] That distance of two notes being
right close to,
together is called a second, and so that's
what page 29
the student will be drawing is, noting if
the second is going up or going down.
So, when you're working with your student
this week make sure you talk to them
Up, down, up.
So even if you use that
instead of counting for this week, that
would be great.
So let's do that as I play page 30 on
stepping along.
I'm going to be saying up, down, or same.
So, ooh, stepping along.
We are on our white keys now, so find the
3 black keys and then scoot up,
so we are playing our notes g, a and b
right hand and left hand same thing.
So getting in position, number one is
right hand, starting with finger two and
then we don't talk about finger numbers
any time after that.
So ready?
Two, up, down, up, up, down, down, two.
Number two, left hand
will start on finger three.
Ready, go.
Three, same, up, down, down.
One two, same two.
So move on to Deep Blue Sea, page 31.
We're going to see the same thing.
Not going to count the rhythm, but, but
use the words up down and same, so
we focus on the directions of the notes.
So page 31 is the same position as we were
in 30.
G, A, B.
Two, three, four.
And fingers G, A, B, four three two, left
Ready, right hand will start finger two
right hand, and
left hand will start finger four.
And it's good, even though the right hand
plays the entire first line,
it's good to look ahead and just get your
brain ready for what left hand is going to
start with so you don't have a big pause
getting left hand started on line two.
So right hand starting note,
left hand starting note,
ready, go.
Two, up, down, up, up, down, down, two.
Up, up, down, up, down, two.
Same two, four, up down, up, up, down,
down two, up, same, up, down, down two,
same two.
That might take a little bit of work.
If the student is getting frustrated in
the first day, just keep cutting it back.
So instead of doing the whole thing just
try one line.
If one line's too much just do one little
section to the first half note.
Just, the, the key with getting great at
piano is to never overwhelm.
So if something's getting too much you cut
it down to what the.
What you can feel you can really do well.
So don't worry about getting it all in.
You'll get it all in once you've done it a
little bit.
You, you'll pick it up so, so quickly.
So here's the duet for Deep Blue Sea.
One, two, ready, go.
All right, that's it for this week.
See you next time.
