This
is Peery Habits level two, practical
lesson number three.
So every day on your practice chart,
you're going to start out by singing the
two interval songs.
Let's sing them together now, starting
with middle C.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Very good.
Okay, so put that on your practice chart
one time per day.
You'll be singing those two songs.
Also, put on your practice chart to be,
going through your
flash cards one time every day, timing
them and writing your time on the chart.
And your staff book drills, doing one line
of drills per day, and
writing your time on the chart each day.
We're going back to our LNM1A Celebrate
Piano book, and
this week we'll be covering pages 40
through 44.
So on your chart, here's how you need to
practice each of these pages.
Page 40, play this piece five times per
day,
marking with an X when you play through,
or a star if it's perfect.
Page 41, mark when it's completed.
So that has some written work, and just
one little clapping drill.
Page 42 five times per day marking with
X's and stars.
Page 43 is written work, so mark when
completed.
Page 44 pattern search, is a piece you
will play
five times per day, marking with X's and
stars.
This has three, five per day pieces.
If this is too much, feel free to cut this
in half and do, maybe, the first two
pages, or the first three pages this week
and then the remainder the week after.
But this is a big assignment, so if you're
having trouble reading the notes going up,
down or staying the same, you'll want to
cut this lesson in half.
Okay, so student, it's time for you to
leave and you can come back after
you've practiced your pieces for a minimum
of five days.
Okay, so here we are with the demos for
the practice partner or for the student to
show you if you've been doing it right,
after your five day practice week.
So let's start with page 40.
And now, you've seen that the music is
written on both staffs.
We're going to do the higher staff with
the right hand,
starting with the right hand finger one
[MUSIC]
on F.
And the left hand is gonna start with
finger three
[MUSIC]
on F.
So this whole top staff.
Right here.
This whole top staff will be played with
right hand followed straight with
the left hand.
This is how music is normally written.
Prior to this we've had it all written on
the same line, but now we're transitioning
into what music really looks like when
we're playing piano music.
So, this is what it will look like from
now on in this book.
So here's our position on the Fs.
Ready, go.
One, one, one, same.
One, one, one, one.
One, one, one.
[MUSIC]
Two, one, one, same, one,
one, one, one, one, one, same, two.
That's a really great one to practice.
The ups, downs, and sames.
So if you're having trouble with that,
just go through saying up, down, and
then same.
Page 41.
We're just going to tap this rhythm.
And now, on page 41, they start to add, as
it says in that box at the top,
the bar lines.
So, bar lines make it easy, coz it groups
the notes together.
So it makes it easier for us to see where
we are.
If you remember, I think, two weeks ago,
how I had to point,
because I would get lost of where I was,
if I didn't point.
Now it groups it so our eye is able to see
better and each grouping in this rhythm
is, has four beats total, so it makes it
out equal and easier to keep track of.
So notice the bar lines, and then the
double bar line, or
there are two at the, at, tell us it's the
end.
Two at the end, that's the double bar
line.
Okay, so let's go through number one.
I'm just going to clap these while I
count.
Number one, ready, go.
One, one, one, one.
One, two.
One, two.
One, two.
One, one, one, one.
One, two.
That was kinda fast but
if you've been practicing all week you
should have been able to keep up with me.
Number two.
Ready, go.
One, two, one, one, two, one,
one, one, one, one, one, two.
Excellent.
Okay, let's go on to 42, Lullaby.
Left hand's finger four on E going up
those three.
Right hand E going up those three.
Right hand first note is E, finger two.
Left hand first note is E finger four.
Lullaby page 42.
Ready, go.
One, two, one, one, two.
[MUSIC]
One, one, two, one, one, one,
two, one, one, one, one, two, one,
one, two, one, one, one, two.
Now with the duet.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
Very good.
All right, on page 43 you learned
the difference between a melodic interval
where the notes are played apart,
and a harmonic interval where the notes
are played together and make harmony.
So on that first line you circled whether.
The intervals were harmonic or melodic.
And the answers would be, first one,
harmonic, melodic, melodic, harmonic.
And then this one you would write, going
up or down, harmonic or melodic.
So make sure that the harmonic ones are
right close together and
that the melodic ones are far apart.
Last one page 44 pattern search.
Left hand starting with finger four G, A,
B right hand same position G, A, B
[MUSIC]
[SOUND] Right hand will start with finger
two [SOUND] on G.
Left hand will start with finger four.
[SOUND] on G.
Right hand is the upper staff.
It will take up the whole first line
followed by the second line, left hand,
lower staff.
Ready? Go. One [SOUND], one [SOUND], one
[SOUND] ,.
one [SOUND], one [SOUND].
One, one, one, one.
One, one, one, one, two.
One, two.
One, one, one, one.
One, one, one, one.
One, one, one, one.
One, two.
One, two.
[SOUND] That's it for this lesson.
See you for the next lesson, practical
number four.
