This
is Peery Habits Level two Practical Lesson
number 11.
So, this week your practice chart is going
to include your interval songs.
Start with those every day.
You have, you, you have three now.
Middle C.
[MUSIC]
Busy B.
[MUSIC]
And Cuckoo Bird.
[MUSIC]
Good.
[MUSIC]
Just sing those.
You can sing those all around the house,
too.
The more you sing, the better ear you get.
So, singing is fantastic for your piano.
Also include on your practice chart, your
flash cards, and your staff book.
You should be getting close to having all
of your cards in your flash cards now.
You don't need to have them all under a
minute,
but you should be at least having some
bass clef added in that stack now.
And with intervals, it would be good for
you to be around seconds.
Through probably fifths, or sixths, at
this point.
If you're not, that's okay.
We'll just keep drilling them.
You'll get them faster, and be able to add
more when you're ready.
So, we'll be working out of our Solos,
Level one book.
You'll be doing pages ten and 11.
Okay, both of those, you'll need to
practice five times per day.
Marking your chart boxes with an X or with
a star.
And as always, on the first day, if it's a
little overwhelming,
just play through it three times, instead
of five.
That's just fine.
You can also just do one line of each
piece on the first day,
not the whole thing.
So, you can make it a little bit smaller
on that first day,
because it's a lot of new things on the
first day.
It always is.
First day is the worst, and then every day
after that, always gets better,
doesn't it?
Okay, so, come back after you've practiced
for five days.
Or if you're a practice partner, you can
stay, I'll show you how these pieces go.
If you've practiced for five days, hear
how the pieces go, you can try and
play with me.
So, here's page ten, Star Light, Star
Bright.
Left hand is going to be on a B.
[MUSIC]
Right hand oh, sorry.
On the, on the keyboard picture, I need to
make sure.
It tells us to play on this B, above
middle C.
Which is important if you're playing with
somebody, the duet part.
So, here's our B, and then, right hand is
going to be playing D and E,
with fingers two and three.
So, here we go.
Right hand's gonna start with finger two,
followed by left hand, finger two.
One, two, ready, go.
1, 2,1, 2.
1, 2, 1, 2.
One, two.
[MUSIC]
One, two.
[MUSIC]
One, two.
[MUSIC]
Okay,
great, that's probably a familiar tune.
Here it is with the duet.
Ready.
One, two, ready go.
[MUSIC]
Page 11, Can Can,
our position is on the G above middle C,
with left hand.
[MUSIC]
Three and one, forming a third.
Right hand, forming a third, starting on C
and going to E.
Right hand will start this piece, finger
one on C.
Left hand's first note will be finger one
on B.
Here we go.
One, two, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
One, two.
[MUSIC]
One, two.
[MUSIC]
One, two.
[MUSIC]
One, two.
[MUSIC]
One, two.
All right let's do that with the duet.
Ready?
One, two, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
That has a really fun duet.
After you finish these pieces, you're
ready to go on to practical number 12.
