is Peery Habits level two, musical lesson
number nine.
Okay you've done a great job.
You know in the entire Halloween Pranks.
So this next week,
we're going to be working on getting
Halloween Pranks up to final speed.
So the way that we were going to do this
is that we're going to
start at metronome 120.
Now on your practice chart, I want you to
practice it five times every day.
And three of the five times you need to
move up the metronome.
So that you're getting faster three ticks
every day.
By the end of this week, if you're moved
up the metronome
three ticks every day, and mostly do that
when you can mark a star,
then, you should be at metronome 120, but
double speed.
So, let me show you, for example.
Here's the speed you're going to start
[SOUND] On your first day of practice this
One, one, one, one.
One two.
Three, four, soft.
So that's your starting speed.
On the first day, you'll practice
metronome 126, 132, and 138.
Do you see how you practice three
different speeds?
Day two, you'll start with 144, and then
also do 152 and 160.
And you'll keep doing that throughout the
whole week, until you get back around 120.
So when you reach 200, you'll move your
dial all the way back, cuz 200 is the same
as 100 except now your clicks aren't going
to be clicking for as many notes.
So let me give you an example of what 120
at the final speed sounds like.
So we've done it at your starting speed,
but now we'll do it at your final speed.
[SOUND] One, two, ready, go.
So that's your goal.
If you can't get it at 120 by the end of
this week.
Break this assignment into two weeks.
And just do as many speeds as you can
perfectly each day.
So if you can only do it perfectly one
time, only move it up one speed.
So you really should move up the metro
dome unless you're getting that star.
So you'll need to aim for three perfect
play throughs each day this week.
It's a big assignment.
You can break it down into as many weeks
as you need, and I'll look forward to
seeing you at musical number ten when you
have it at metronome 120.
