is Peery Habits level two, practical
lesson number two.
So first let's hear that Middle C Song.
Are you on it?
So let's
sing Middle C Song followed by Busy B Song
now that we know where middle C is.
This is the sound [SOUND] of middle C.
Busy B. Busy B. Now check.
Busy B.
Busy, busy, bumblebee.
Make sure you put on your practice chart
to do those two songs.
Sing them through one time everyday.
Okay, this week also on your practice
chart you'll be putting flashcards
doing those one time every day marking
down your times,
staff book one time everyday marking down
your times.
Remember with flash cards when you get
your cards under one minute,
that's when you can add the next set of
When you get your staff book under ten
that's when you can go to the next drill
And this week we're going to move back to
our solos book,
Solos Level One from Celebrate Piano, and
you're going to play pages six and seven.
You'll play both of these pieces five
times per day.
Marking X for a play, play through and
start if you play it through perfectly.
So, if it's overwhelming to play two new
pieces in one week,
it's okay on the first day just to do it
three times, and
just kind of learn the notes as well as
you can.
The other thing you can do is not learn
the whole thing the first day,
just learn the first line.
Always remember, just do what is not
So just do as much as you can that you
feel you can really do and
feel good about.
If it takes you more than five days to
complete a lesson,
that is absolutely fine.
But it should always be a minimum of five
practice days so
we get in enough repetition.
That's key to being a great piano player.
So, practice partner.
It's your time now.
So, student you can go out of the room and
I'm going to demonstrate, or student you
can listen to these if you've practiced
them for at least five days.
So here's how we do Carousel Waltz Solos
page six.
Right hand on three black keys, left hand
on two black keys.
Right hand will start with finger two,
left hand will start with finger three.
Ready, go.
One, one, one, one, one, one, one two.
One two, one, one, one, one,
one, one, one, one, one, one, one, one.
Now let's do that with the duet.
Ready, go.
This is Solos, page 7, Lullaby.
Left hand is going to start on F with
finger four and go up to those three keys.
Right hand will start on middle C.
With finger two, and also B [SOUND] using
finger three.
Left hand will start with finger four
[SOUND] on F.
Right hand will start on finger two
[SOUND] on C.
Remember no writing in additional finger
numbers or names of the notes.
Focus on whether the notes are moving up,
down, or staying the same.
Here we go, lullaby.
Ready, go.
One, two, one, two, one, one, one, two.
One, one, one, one, one, two.
Same two, one, two, one, two, one,
one, one, two.
One, one, one.
One, one, two.
Sing, two.
Here it is with the duet.
One, two, ready, go.
One, two, one, two, one, two, one, two,
one, two, one, two, one, two, one.
All right, that's it for Practical two.
See you for Practical three.
