This is Peery habits level 3,
practical lesson number 2, Ear Exercises
from lesson in musicianship, page 14.
Okay, so let's do page 14 together.
We're gonna start with clap backs.
You're very familiar with this if you've
already gone
through Peery habits, level two.
So, turn around.
I'm gonna clap something, clap a rhythm.
And I want you to clap it back.
I'll clap it twice and then it's your
turn.
Ready?
Here's the first one.
Ready, go.
[SOUND] One, one, one, two.
Here it is again.
Ready, go.
[SOUND] One, one, one, two.
Okay?
Your turn.
Ready, go.
Okay.
How'd you do?
Let's go on to the next one.
Turn around so you're not looking at me.
Okay.
One, two, ready go.
One, one.
One, one, two, three, four.
Now if you're not sure what I did, turn
around and watch.
I'm doing a rest in there, and I show it
by putting my hands out this way.
A rest is when you just take a break in
music.
It's a, it's a sound of silence.
Here's the, here it is again.
Second example, ready, go.
One, one, rest.
One, one, two, three, four.
Okay, you do it just like that.
Ready, go.
Okay.
And last example, this one also has a rest
in there.
So, since we're new to rests, if you want
to watch me both times that's fine.
Here we go.
Ready, go.
One, two rest.
One, one, two, three, four.
Hear this again, one, two, rest.
One, one, two, three, four.
Now it's your turn.
Ready, go.
Were you able to stay right with me?
Okay, great.
Now let's do some playbacks.
We're going to do all of our playbacks on
middle C.
[SOUND] If you're near the keyboard go
ahead and play them back.
If you're not, it's okay to sing them.
Remember we're gonna call C one.
And we're going to use [SOUND] One, two,
three, two, one.
Those three notes, you can just call them
by their numbers.
Okay, so here's the first one.
Starting on C, turn around, don't look.
Here's the first one.
[MUSIC]
Here it is again.
[MUSIC]
Okay, you try, starting right here.
Find your C.
Okay.
Ready, go.
Okay, did you play one, two, three?
Very good.
Let's do number two.
Still on middle C.
Turn around.
Okay.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Here it is again.
[MUSIC]
Your turn.
Starting on C.
Okay, the answer?
One, two, three, one.
Did you hear that skip going back to the
one?
Great.
Let's do the last one, again, starting
with middle C.
Here we go.
Turn around.
[MUSIC].
Listen to this one closely, here it is
again,
[MUSIC]
Okay lets, have you do that one?
Ready, go.
Okay that one was tricky, let's see if you
got it.
It's one, one, two, two, three, one.
Did you get the same, the repeat notes and
the skip?
That had a lot going on.
Okay, great job in working those ears.
One more thing we're going to do is the
question and answer.
I'm gonna play a small little melody that
sounds unfinished.
They're gonna start on F.
So you need to play something back, or
sing something back that sounds complete.
I'll do the question, you do the answer.
Just make sure that your answer ends back
on this F.
That's what's gonna make it sound like an
answer.
Like it's complete.
Here's the first one.
We'll do two of these.
Here's my question.
[MUSIC]
Now, give me an answer.
Okay.
Let's do another one.
Here we go.
Remember to end on F.
Here's another one.
[MUSIC]
Now answer.
Okay, great.
Good job.
You can mark on your chart that you've
completed page 14 for this weeks lesson.
