This
is Peery habits level 2, practical lesson
number 7.
So, on your practice chart, this week,
you're going to practice your interval
songs.
We're doing the middle c song, start
singing.
[MUSIC]
Did you get it?
And then busy bee song.
Busy bee.
So sing those two songs one time every
day.
Keep doing your flash cards one time every
day and your staff book.
Write in your daily times on your practice
chart.
When you've met the minimum time goals,
add more cards or go to the next staff
book sheet drill.
Pretty soon you'll get it.
I know if you keep practicing you're going
to get faster and faster.
We're going to do pieces out of the solos
level one book from Celebrate Piano.
The pages we'll be doing are page eight,
My Friend Ling Sue.
And page nine, Alphabet Soup.
So I will see you in five practice days.
You can come back and check, hear me play
these, and
see if you've got them right, or if you're
the practice partner,
you can stay on and listen to how these go
so you can help.
So here's page eight, My Friendly Sue.
We're playing on both staffs now.
Right hand is going to play on the three
black keys with fingers two, three,
and four.
Left hand is going to play on two black
keys with fingers three and two.
Right hand is gonna start with finger
four, and
left hand is playing that harmonic,
interval of the second.
To start with.
So let's go through the whole piece.
One, two, ready, go.
One, one, one.
One, one, one, one.
One, one, one, one.
One, one, one, two.
One, one, one, one. One, one, one,. One,
one, one,
one, one, two, one, two.
Now I'm going to play the duet.
One, two, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Page nine, Alphabet Soup.
Our left hand is going to be on c and d,
with fingers two and three.
Right hand, on c, d, e, with fingers two,
three and four.
They tell us that that first note in the
right hand is a c.
The third space up there, and
that's the note that the right hand's
gonna start with.
So c, finger two, and left hand is going
to start on the second line.
[MUSIC]
With that interval,
harmonic interval of a second, c and d
together.
[MUSIC]
So here we go.
One, two, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
One, one, one, one, one, two.
One, one, one, one, one, one, one, two.
One, one, one, two.
One, one, one, two.
One, one, one, one, bells, bells, one,
two.
This piece has dynamics of p on the first
line, and f forte on the second line.
If you're having an easy enough time
with the notes, you can look at these
musical details that would be great.
If you're having trouble reading the notes
don't worry about those for now.
Just get the notes and rhythm first.
Okay, let's go through the duet for
alphabet soup.
Here we go.
One, two, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Now that one sounds kind of neat.
All right great job on practical seven.
And I will see you for practical eight.
[MUSIC]
