This
is Peery Habits level three, musical
lesson number 13.
My lucky number, right?
Whoo.
Okay, this is a great lesson, you're gonna
love it.
So you're working on Bouncing On My Bed,
To Fly Like An Eagle.
You're going to get that video into me,
right?
And if you've already done it, you can
say, oh, quit bugging me.
You already have a video.
Okay.
Great.
Practice lines one and two, hands
together.
Continue to do that five times every day
marking with x's and stars.
This week you're going to put line three,
the two B sections, hands together.
So, we don't need to go over to fern.
It's the same details as we covered in the
last lesson.
Let me just play it for you, hands
together, just to keep
you reviewed on what you're going to sound
like by the end of this week.
So, here we go.
[MUSIC]
That takes a little bit of coordination,
especially with the wrists.
So practice it slowly, even if you're
doing-
[MUSIC]
Just feeling this, and
then leaving out those eights for a while.
Cuz this part's hard enough, getting this
hand down and this hand up.
When you can do that really great-
[MUSIC]
Then you can add the eighths.
[MUSIC]
Just one
thing I noticed as I was playing the slow
wrist that I want you to be aware of is
[MUSIC]
To make a really beautiful round sound.
The rounder the sound you wanna make the
more we'll play on our finger pad.
So especially when I'm dropping with my
wrist, my finger's quite flat.
But here's the difference, we still don't
collapse, okay.
So here my finger's playing flat and here
it's collapsed.
Do you see the difference?
This is okay.
This is all okay.
This is all okay.
It's still a curved finger.
I'm just using different amounts of my
pad.
Cuz here I wanna sharp sound, and in
Minueto I want more of a round sound.
So I playing with more of my skin
touching.
You see?
But as long as we don't ever see this.
Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm.
So I don't know if you realize, but we
don't always play on our tippy,
tippy, tips.
But this is the hardest way to play and
you've already mastered this.
So now you can start experimenting on that
rolling down.
So it's okay when you have to do that
round wrist that you go down
as long as you're not going down with your
tip collapsed, got it?
Did you catch that?
Okay, great.
Get to work on section B, hands together.
