This
is Peery Habits Level two, Practical
Lesson number 13.
So, your practice chart this week will
include the interval songs, middle C.
[MUSIC]
Busy B.
[MUSIC]
And Cuckoo Bird.
[MUSIC]
Sing all three of those, once every day.
The more you repeat these, the better
you're going to get.
So, I know we've done them a long time,
but
that's what you need to do to be a great
musician.
It's a lot of repetition, a lot of
practice.
You're also going to include on your
practice charts, your flash cards, and
your staff book.
Know we've been doing these all the time
as well, but
that's what we need to do to get great at
them, so you can read music easily.
So, write you daily time on your chart,
and keep adding cards, or
adding drills, as you meet those minimum
time requirements.
One minute for flash cards, ten seconds
for staff book.
You'll be working out of the LNM, 1A book,
covering pages 71 through 73.
71, you need to practice five times per
day, marking with Xs and stars.
72 and 73 are also five times per day,
mark it with Xs and stars.
So, you have three pieces that you're
working on this week.
If that's too much, again, feel free to
just do one or two of them.
And put this practical number 13 over two
weeks.
That's fine.
On the Four Star book that we started last
week, you'll be going on to unit two.
Do one exercise every day.
Make sure not to ignore that rhythm
exercise that comes after site reading
exercise number five.
You can do that along with one of your
site reading exercises one of the days, or
kind of break it up, and do a little bit
of your rhythm,
along with one of your daily site reading
exercises.
And do feel free to send me a video of any
of the tests when you're ready.
So, I will see you after you've practiced
for five days, then you can come back and
check how these pieces are supposed to go.
See if you got close.
Okay, so if you've practiced or if you're
a practice partner,
here are the examples for page 71, My New
Bike.
Now, this one is very often done
incorrectly.
There are three beats in each measure,
and students very often want to add an
extra beat.
So, listen carefully, we're gonna count
this one out loud.
So, right hand's going to start on A, with
finger two.
Left hand will also be starting on A with
finger two.
Here we go.
One, two, go.
[MUSIC]
1, 2, 3.
[MUSIC]
1, 2, 3.
[MUSIC]
1, 2, 3.
[MUSIC]
1, 2, 3.
Let's do that with the duet.
Ready?
One, two, go.
[MUSIC]
You could keep right with me if you were
counting correctly.
Let's go on to page 72, Whole Note Cheer.
Right hand's going to start C, finger one.
And left hand's going to start G, finger
three.
One, two, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
1, 2, 3, 4.
[MUSIC]
1, 2, 3, 4.
[MUSIC]
One, two.
One, two.
1, 2, 3, 4.
You see that repeat sign at the end?
Remember, you don't have to repeat in your
practice, but you can if you want.
Okay, let's go on with a duet.
One, two, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
1, 2, 3, 4.
[MUSIC]
Great, moving on,
this is a student favorite, page 73, Old
McDonald.
Probably because you all know this piece,
so here we go.
Right hand's gonna start on G, finger two.
Left hand's going to start with a D,
finger three.
You hear that Old MacDonald already.
Here we go.
One, two, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
One, two.
[MUSIC]
1, 2, 3.
[MUSIC]
One, two.
[MUSIC]
1, 2, 3, 4.
This sounds great with a duet.
Here we go.
One, two, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
That one's fun.
All right.
So, if you're finished, you're ready to go
on to Practical Number 14.
