This
is Peery Habits Level 3, Practical
Introduction.
In the practical lessons in Level 3, we'll
be using a variety of books.
These books are quite self-explanatory.
And so
please be sure to read them fully, every
page as you go.
In order to understand the assignment
clearly.
The books we'll be using include the four
star book that we used from level two.
So that's the four star sight reading and
ear training.
Introductory level, and that's by Berlin.
Like that famous city in Germany.
Okay, next, you'll be using the Bastien
flashcards.
Those are also from Level Two.
We will be adding to the flashcards so
keep that same stack of 18 cards.
If you haven't been doing the flashcards
from Level Two, go back and review from
Level Two what cards you should be able to
play in, say, under one minute.
If you've passed that, it is time to add
more cards and
these are the cards you'll be using.
I'll give you the numbers.
So in the Bastion flash card the first
group that you'll add are cards
number four, five, six, and seven.
That covers low C, D, E, and F.
Add those to your stack.
When you're able to play and say,
under a minute, then you'll add this
next set which are your middle ledgers.
These are cards number 17, 25, and 26.
These cover mm middle B.
From the base clef.
Middle C.
[MUSIC]
And ledger D.
Which is in the treble clef.
If you get those card numbers.
In the Bastion stack, you'll have no
trouble finding those cards.
Okay, the last set that we're doing in
Level Three are the upper ledgers.
Those are cards 36 through 39.
And that includes-
[MUSIC]
treble G, A, B and C.
So in order to become Peery certified in
flashcards you need to have every
card between this low C and this high C,
be able to play and say in one minute.
So practise your flashcards every single
day.
Okay, you'll also be working on your staff
book.
The drills are found online.
The only difference between Level Three
and Level Two.
Is level two you are just saying them.
Level three you're playing them and saying
them.
And yes, you do have to play the right
notes.
So you can't just play random notes as
long as the interval is correct, good try.
Okay, so we're still just going seconds
through eights.
This time you have 20 whole seconds to be
able to play eight intervals between
a second and an eighth playing and saying
them to become Peery certified.
You'll also need in every practical
assignment the lesson in musicianship book
1B from celebrate Piano and the solos
level one from Celebrate Piano.
Those are very great books and have a lot
of explanation on each page.
Make sure you read the instructions.
I'll also be giving a video answer on
these books,
so after your five-week, not five weeks,
heavens, five days of practice,.
You can come back and
check your answers and see if you've
learned those pieces correctly.
Its really important that you try and
learn these pieces without hearing them or
watching me play them, by that you're
really learning to read the on your own.
One of the greatest joys that comes from
playing the piano, is to be able to sit
down, grab a book, and play right away, to
be a good sight reader.
So, this is where we learn how to do that.
So, don't watch those videos until you've
already given it a try, and
read those book, read that music,
yourself.
A new book that we'll be learning in level
three is the Fundamentals of Piano Theory
by Keith Snell, not Snail, Snell, and
Martha Ashley.
There will be assignments in each lesson
plan of how many pages to cover every week
in that book.
And then the last thing is your interval
songs,
of course start out your practice every
day singing these interval songs,
from level two we've already learned three
songs, middle c, busy b, and cuckoo bird.
So if you didn't go through level two,
make sure you go back to the level two
lessons, and learn those songs so that
you're singing them every day.
We will be learning new songs in the 1B
book of lesson in musicianship, but
those will be written out.
You'll be able to read them, learn them,
and sing them.
I'll also, I'll also sing them when they
come up on the video answers, okay.
So I think you're ready to go.
You can click on practical level.

lesson plan for your lesson this week.
