is Peery Habits, Level Three, Musical
Number 14.
So this week, you're practicing Bouncing
on My Bed, and Eagle,
unless you've Peery Certified.
Then, you're vacation.
Minueto, you're going to practice lines
one to three,
hands together, marking with Xs and stars.
And you know why you're marking the star.
You know by now.
You're, you're such a pro.
So, let's go on and finish off Minueto.
Let me play for you the last line, and
then let's talk about it a little bit.
That, that's your assignment for this
week, and it's to play it hands together.
So this is the first line we're starting
hands together but you'll hear why.
Did any of that sound familiar?
It starts just like A.
It goes back to A.
The only difference is we come off on this
note, but the notes are exactly the same.
Now the last two measures are different.
So let's go over our fern steps for this
Okay, so starting with fingers, I'm not
gonna do the fingers for section A part.
You already know that.
So let's start in measure 15, right hand.
It's going to go two, three, four, one.
Then cross over your two, and back to one.
I like two here.
If I was just, I was just noticing, if
you're starting with your four
like you're used to you're going to be on
a three here.
Three, four, five, on these fast notes, is
really hard to control.
So it's gonna roll together, and be
So after you do this lift, come back on
your two.
This is really important.
So you're doing two, three, four, one,
two, one.
Two, three, and four are our three
strongest fingers, so let's use those.
Left hand.
You're going to start, this is, again, on
measure 15.
Five, four, one, okay.
Left hand doesn't have a lot to do, but
right hand's going to do a drop,
float, float.
Let's do that.
Drop, float, float.
Okay, so just a little drop.
Heavy, light, light.
Now, rhythm.
This is the big thing that's new.
You'll notice that those eighth notes have
a little three under there.
That three is not a finger number, okay?
Right here.
This is not a finger number.
That means this note is a triplet, which
means, instead of two eighths fitting
into one beat like we're used to, we're
going to do three eighths.
So one way you can think of that, if we
have one beat going,
instead of one, two, one, two, it goes
one, two, three.
One, two, three.
One, two, three.
[NOISE] See how I'm fitting three notes?
One fun way to think of your triplet is by
saying the word watermelon.
You can do watermelon, watermelon.
Try that.
Say it with me.
So as long as you get that,
you'll have it.
And then the rest is pretty easy.
Let's talk about your notes.
Let's just go over your notes.
Right hand is D,
E, F, C, B, C.
And left hand is F, G, C.
So together, cuz your practicing this line
Hold that left hand,
don't pop up with your right hand.
And at the end it's good to do a little
bit of a push here instead of a drop,
otherwise you might be a little bit too
All right, so get to work learning the
rest of line four,
and then next lesson you'll be able to
hear the whole thing put together.
