This
is Peery Habits, Level 2, Practical Lesson
Number 14.
This week on your practice chart, you're
going to include your interval songs.
We're covering middle C.
Can you sing it?
[MUSIC]
Busy B, sing it with me.
Busy bee.
Busy bee.
Busy, busy bumblebee.
Keep going.
Cuckoo bird.
Cuckoo bird.
Can you hear the Cuckoo bird?
Good, we kept right on there.
You'll be doing your flash cards and your
staff book,
marking your daily time on your chart.
You'll also be doing four-star, unit
three.
One sight reading exercise every day in
unit three.
You'll be playing pieces out of your L and
M, book 1A.
And we'll be covering pages 74, 75, and
then we'll be doing 76 today online
together.
So page 74 you're going to need to
practice the top part of that five times
every day, marking with x's and stars.
This part right here.
You will also need to do this written work
here, and this written work here.
Page 75, this one's really fun, is this
rhythm maze.
So that's just written work and you can
mark it when completed.
So now let's move to page 76, and we're
going to do our ear exercises.
So the first one, listening game.
You're going to need to open your book and
write this along as I play.
So I'm going to play either up a second,
or a step.
Or down a second from this note that's
written and then this one.
So, you need to listen if it goes up or
down, and
then you need to know how to draw in a
second.
So let's try it, let's do this first one.
So just listen and first listen just if
it's going up or down.
Here we go.
[MUSIC]
Did that go up or down?
Here it is again.
[SOUND]
That went up.
So to draw the second, you should have
drawn from
this space to this very next line right
here.
Okay, so that's what your answer should
look like.
I'm going to play the rest of the examples
only once to
see if your ear can catch on very quickly.
Here we go.
Number two.
[MUSIC]
Up or down?
[SOUND]
That one went down,
so that would go from a line note,
to the very next space note.
Okay, let's do the third one.
Here we go.
[MUSIC]
[SOUND]
That one went up, didn't it?
So that would go from a line note.
Excuse me, from this space note to the
very next line note.
Number four, here we go.
[MUSIC]
Did that go up or down?
Sing it back.
That's right, it went down.
So let's go from this space note down the
staff, drawing on the next line note.
And now on our last one.
Okay, listen carefully.
[MUSIC]
Did you catch it?
[MUSIC]
That moved down.
So we'll go from a line note to this space
note.
So now you're not only hearing music,
you're hearing and
writing what you hear, which is amazing.
You should feel very pleased with yourself
for being able to do that.
Okay, let's do some clapbacks together.
Ready?
Turn around.
Try not to look at me.
If you have to look on the second time you
can, but try not to.
Just try to memorize it, do it with your
ears.
Here we go.
Ready, go.
Sorry, false start.
Let's try it again.
Ready, go.
One, one, two.
One, two, three.
Second time.
Ready, go.
One, one, two.
One, two, three.
Now it's your turn.
Ready go.
[SOUND]
Okay?
Very good.
Let's go on to the second one.
Ready, go.
One, one, one, two, one, two, three, four.
Second time, try and just use your ears.
Ready?
Go.
One, one, one, two, one, two, three, four.
Your turn.
If you want to turn around, you'll kind of
see with me if you're doing it right.
This one's long.
Ready?
Go.
One, one, one, two, one, two, three, four.
Did you get it?
These are getting long.
All right.
Let's do our last one.
Ready, go.
[SOUND] One, one, one, one, two, three.
Here it is again, one, one, one, one, two,
three.
You're turn.
Ready, go.
[SOUND] One, two, three.
All right, excellent.
You're getting great at your rhythms.
And now we're going to do playbacks.
[SOUND] Today, the playbacks are going to
start on F.
So here we go.
Turn around.
You can sing them or play them.
First one, ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Hear it again.
[MUSIC]
Your turn,
you can sing or play starting on the F
with your thumb in the right hand.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
That skip at the end, did you hear it?
Here's the second one.
Turn around so you don't see me.
[MUSIC]
Starting on F again.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
I'll do it without singing this time.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Your turn.
[SOUND] Starting on the F, ready, go.
Okay, so here's your answer.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
One, two, three, four.
All right.
That was tricky.
Last one.
This has kind of a twist to it, so really
listen up.
Starting on the F.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Second time.
[MUSIC]
Your turn.
Ready, go.
Okay, the answer was.
[MUSIC]
That was tricky,
because it started with a skip, and then
it had the repeat.
[SOUND] That repeat always throws
everyone.
So if you got that repeat, you can feel
really great.
That's tricky.
Okay.
So that's it for this week.
You can come back in five days, and check
back if you did page 74 right.
If you've practiced your five days
already, stick around here and
let's do page 74 right now, together.
So 74, you're gonna start with fingers two
and three, right hand on B and C.
When left hand comes in, it's going to
play on fing notes A and
B with fingers two and three.
So here we go.
One, two, go.
[MUSIC]
One, two, three.
[MUSIC]
One, two, three.
[MUSIC]
One, two, three.
[MUSIC]
One, two, three.
All right.
So that's it for lesson number 13.
Excuse 14.
And we'll go on to number 15 next time.
[MUSIC]
