This
is Peery Habits Level 3 Muscular Lesson
number 2.
This week on your practice chart you're
going
to include Junior Hanon number one and
metronome 104.
This is the same assignment as last week.
And I want you to continue to practice it,
seeing if you can get
those two ticks per note on the muscle
builders exercise.
It also gives you an extra chance
to make sure that your position on power
fingers and muscle builders is correct.
Doing these junior hand in exercises you
might find that it's really hard to learn
the notes of the pattern and get it up to
speed all in the same week.
So you always have two weeks to do each
Junior Hanon exercise.
The first week, it's okay just to focus on
learning the pattern and
getting with the metronome, perhaps in
power fingers.
Or, be playing it slower than final speed.
And doing muscle builders and power
fingers together.
But by the second week, you should for
sure be up to speed.
In this case it's 104, and be doing muscle
builders and
power fingers with the metronome everyday.
If you wanna send in a video so I can
check how you're doing.
If you've moved from the three ticks in
muscle builders to two ticks,
I would love to see it.
I bet you're doing it great.
We're adding a hand over hand key, so keep
practicing D major and D minor chords.
And we're adding the next group two key,
which is A major,
and we'll also do the A minor chord as
well.
So what do you think A major chord is
going to look like?
Okay.
So we know we're gonna start with A on
the bottom.
And do you remember the pattern for Group
2?
It goes white-
[SOUND] That's right.
And then black in the middle, followed by
white.
Let's demonstrate that.
This week you'll be playing your chords at
metronome 108.
[MUSIC]
Play 108 for both D major minor and
A major and A minor.
[MUSIC]
So here is A major hand over hand.
Ready, go.
[NOISE] Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, top note.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, we're done.
Now, how would you make that A major chord
into a minor chord?
Do you remember?
[SOUND] That's right, you just take that
middle note [SOUND] And
move it down to a half step, so now it's
on a white note.
Let's go through A minor hand over hand.
Ready, go.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, top note.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, we're done.
So, you'll practice D major and minor-
A major and minor chords hand over hand
and
metronome 108, one time for every key,
every day.
After five practice days, or when you've
mastered all of these items,
you're ready to go on to muscular lesson
number three.
