is Peery Habits Level 3, Musical Lesson
Number 5.
So now you know the entire piece of
Bouncing in my bed, it's time to get it
ready to try and pass and become Peery
certified, and get that up to tempo.
So this week our challenge is to get to
our final speed, and our goal is 126.
Now, like I said before, speed is the last
thing we should be worried about.
So to become fiery certified,
you can get at anywhere within the range
of 104 to 126 that's fine.
The music is also marked that you can go
as fast as 138, so
if you're having an easy time getting all
of your details in FERN, you can try and
even go faster than 126, but no faster
than 138.
So your first step this week is to find
speed you can play bouncing on my bed
perfectly, it doesn't matter
how slow it is, okay so let's say that I
can play bouncing on my bed right now
perfectly at 76, so my goal is to get it
to at least 104 well that's one, two,
three, four, five, six, seven ticks away.
So if I want to accomplish my goal this
week, I won't, and I'm going to be
practicing five days, I will need to do
about two speeds every day.
So that way I know by the end of the week
I'll reach my goal.
Now, if you set a goal like this for
which is great, some days you might need
to practice more than five times,
because you should only move the speed up
when it's perfect.
So, some days, I might need to practice it
six, seven,
eight times, if I wanna meet my goal in
the week.
If not, maybe it will take me two weeks to
reach my goal.
But it's really important if you want to
be a great piano player,
to have these daily goals.
So, you always know that you're improving,
and you always know that you're working
towards your goal.
So start wherever you can and then be
moving these speeds up, so
you can reach your goal and get Bouncing
on my bed anywhere from 104 to 126.
I'm going to play it for you now, both at
104 and
at 126 you can also be anywhere in
between, but
it gives you some idea of the speed it
needs to be to become Peery certified.
So here it is at 104, now when you send in
your video for certification,
you should not be playing with the
I'm just playing with the metronome right
now so you can hear me, and because you'll
be practicing with the metronome, every
single time you practice this week.
Never will you be playing without the
Okay, here's 104 bouncing on my bed,
One, two, three, four.
One, two, three.
This one's a fun one, I hope you're
singing with me, I hate to sing alone.
Okay, let's do it at 126 so you can hear
how that sounds.
One, two, three, four.
All right.
So, get practicing, moving up that
Make sure that you write wherever your
metronome's speed is,
at the end of your practice, write that on
your chart cuz I promise you'll forget.
Where you were the next day when you come
back to practice.
So always record it on your chart, then
you'll know right where to start at your
practicing the next day and good luck.
And next lesson, I'll be calling out for
your video.
