is Peery Habits Level 3, Muscular Lesson
number 15.
So this week you're going to continue to
practice your Junior Hanon,
your scales, followed by your root
position and inversion broken chords.
If you haven't Peery-certified in
hand-over-hand, guess what?
You get to keep practicing those, as well.
And when you're ready, send me in a video
and we'll try to get you Peery-certified.
Then you'll have less to practice, right?
So in Junior Hanon, your assignment is to
practice number five.
Our goal speed on number five is 120.
And I'm assigning you this week the entire
It's a challenge.
Just see how you can do.
If you can't do the whole thing, go ahead
and break it up.
Break it up into two lines.
So just learn lines one and two.
But if you can, if you're ready, try and
learn the whole thing.
So your goal would be to learn whatever
section you can,
hopefully the whole thing.
Power fingers, any speed all the way
through perfectly.
I'll show you the pattern next week, but
just see if you can figure it out on your
own this week.
For scales, we've done C major, G major,
we added F major with the crazy fingering
in the right hand, and
this week, we're going to add A natural
Now, every major is related to a minor.
They, it's almost like they're in the same
So, you can think of them, they kind of
look alike, right?
Your brother, if you're related to him,
probably looks like you, okay?
So, you look like your mom, your dad, here
you go.
So A minor is related to C major.
And you can find any relatives because
they're three half steps apart.
And the re, the minor's always on the
So if we go to A minor,
we go up three half steps.
That's its relative.
A minor and.
C major are related which means.
They look alike, right?
They're related, okay?
So A minor, natural minor scale, looks
like this.
Just like C major,
only we're starting on A, okay?
So for this week, we're going to practice
C-G-F major in A natural minor scale,
followed by the broken, reposition and
inversion chords, okay?
[SOUND] Your goal speed is 112, but you
know what I say about metronome.
You can leave it out, unless your position
is perfect, then, then work on speed.
Here we go.
Here's left hand A minor.
Ready, go.
Cross under.
Root position.
First inversion.
Easy, right?
Cuz you know C major so great.
So let's do right hand.
Here we go.
Ready, go.
You see my thumb go under right away.
Followed by root position
First inversion.
Should feel just the same as C major.
Okay so that's your assignment.
Be practicing those your almost ready to
be Peery certified completely
in your muscular so get to work and I'll
see you for
your final habits muscular lesson next
