This
is Peery Habits Level two, Muscular Lesson
Nnumber 15.
This week on your practice chart, you're
going to continue to practice muscle
builders and power fingers, and metronome
100, choosing any skips you want.
Your fingers are really building great
habits, so keep up the great work on that.
You've learned C major and G major
five-finger pattern,
in our hand over hand exercise.
And this week we're adding F major.
Now, in every group, and
there are four key groups, with group one
being C, G, and F.
In every group there is an unusual key.
So, have you looked to see the notes of F
major five-finger pattern?
Okay, so if you have, you'll notice, that
this is our unusual key in this group,
because it does not look like C and G.
We have to use that whole step half step
pattern to figure out,
what makes it different?
So let's look.
Here's our F.
[MUSIC]
Let's go up.
Whole step.
[MUSIC]
Whole step.
[MUSIC]
Half step.
Okay, now go up a half step, we're going
to end up on this black key.
[MUSIC]
And then whole step.
You have that skip right there.
So, it has this black key, which is called
B flat,
in the F major five finger-pattern.
Let's play through the whole thing.
[MUSIC]
Now,
when you're setting up in your position a
couple of things,
get your finger on the black key, right at
the start.
So, none of, don't start like this.
[MUSIC]
And then roll up and then roll back down.
Get all of your fingers over the keys.
So, when I'm playing my right hand with 1,
2, 3, 4, 5.
You see I'm already there.
You don't start back here, roll up, and
then roll down.
That makes playing the piano a lot more
difficult.
This way, when you're hardly moving, makes
it a lot easier.
So, let's go through F major, five-finger
pattern, hand over hand.
Metronome 100.
See, are you all set up on the black keys?
Thumbs on the key as well?
Okay.
Now you're ready.
[SOUND] Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
So, practice all of your five-finger
patterns, C, G and F,
five days this practice week, one time
each day, at metronome 100.
And then I'll see you, for Muscular Lesson
number 16,
when you're ready to try and pass them
off.
