This
is Peery habits level two, practical
lesson number five.
So this week on your practice chart,
you're going to write down your
interval songs, singing both middle C and
busy B every day.
You're also going to continue to do your
flash cards, and your staff book.
It should take about the entire level two
to get all of your cards under a minute.
And all of your intervals, seconds through
eighths, in ten seconds or less.
So, just keep working, writing down your
daily speeds.
And you'll get faster and faster and be
there before you know it.
So in your reading books, we're going to
continue in L&M 1A from Celebrate Piano,
and we're going to do pages 49 through 51.
All of these are pieces, so 49 you'll
practice five times per day.
50, let's see what that one's called.
Scooter, you'll practice that five times
per day.
And 51 hands together challenge practiced
five times per day.
And, as always, mark each place within X,
so that when it's perfect, mark it with
a star, and notice how many stars you're
getting by the end of the week.
So, student, time for you to come back
after five days of practicing.
And, here are the demos for the pieces for
practical lesson number five.
So, we'll start with CDE Waltz, page 49.
Right hand
[MUSIC]
C, D, E, left hand will skip middle C and
go down to bass C.
Also, C, D, E, right hand will start on C
finger 2.
Left hand will start on C finger 4.
Here we go.
Ready Go.
One, one, one, one, one, one, one, two.
One, one, two, one, one, one, one,
one, one, one, one, one, one, one, two,
one.
Is a really easy one to add an extra beat,
cuz we're not used to playing in threes,
having three beats per measure for each
bar line.
So make you're playing along with me and,
or counting it out loud and
you're not adding that one, one, one, one,
one, one.
See, I'm adding in an extra beat there.
So ones have to be continuous.
If you have trouble, turn on the metronome
and you'll hear that tick keep going.
So let's do this one with a duet.
This'll really show you if you're adding
an extra beat.
Here we go.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Now let's go on to page 50, scooter.
Right hand again on C, D, E left hand same
position C, D, E.
Right hand will start with finger two on
C, left hand finger four on C.
Right hand will start.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
One, one, one, one, one, one, one, two,
one, one, one, one, one, two, one, two,
one,
one, one, one, one, one, one, two, one,
one, one, one.
Same, two, one, two.
And with the duet.
One, two, ready go.
[MUSIC]
Now onto page 51.
Hands together.
So just like the piece says,
we're going to start playing with our
hands at the same time.
So let's, instead of counting this, I'm
going to say right, left, or both.
So right hand will be finger three on E,
left hand finger three on E.
We're just going to practice playing them
together.
Ready, go.
Right, left, right, left.
Both, both.
Right, right, left, left.
Both, both.
[MUSIC]
So
when they're right on top of each other,
like that, when they're right on
top of each other, that's when you play
the two hands at the same time.
Let's go on to number two.
[MUSIC]
Same position, Es.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Left, right, right, left,
right, right, both
[MUSIC]
Both, both, both.
Excellent, all right and then make sure
well let's do this tapping drill.
So we're gonna play on any black key using
our finger two really curved.
Here's the ending drill, the bottom of
page 51, bar line discovery.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
One, one, one, two, one, one, one,
one, two, one, two, one, one, one, two.
All right, that's it for this week.
See you at the next lesson.
