This is Peery Habits,
Level 3, Practical Lesson Number 5, Lesson
in Musicianship, page 27.
This is our ear exercise so do this as
part of your practice this week.
Okay.
I'm going to play, let's turn to, well,
first turn to page 27 in your Lesson in
Musicianship book.
And you'll need a pencil.
This first exercise is, I'm going to play
from that given note,
either a second away or a third away.
So you're going to need to listen to hear
if it sounds like busy bee.
If it does, it's a second.
It needs to be drawn on the very next line
or space.
If it's a third, it's going to be a skip
and
you need to draw it from space to space or
line to line.
Also, be listening whether it's going up
or down.
So this is a real challenge.
Good luck, let's see how you do.
So page 27.
Turn around so you can't see me.
The first one, here it comes.
Here it is again.
Now did, did that sound like busy bee or
cuckoo bird.
Okay, the answer is, it was cockoo bird.
It's the third, so to draw a third up, da,
dum, we went up.
We're going to take this space note and go
up to the very next space.
So if you did it correctly, there's your
answer.
Okay let's go on to
this one, ready,
here it is again.
What was that, second or third?
If you thought of busy bee, you're right.
It was a second.
Okay.
So, to draw a second, going up, we went,
busy, going up.
You're gonna take this space note,
[INAUDIBLE] it will go to the very next
line note.
Now, with our stem on this note, it can
either go down or up.
Middle line can go either way, so I'm
gonna put it down to the left.
Okay.
Last one.
Ready?
Turn around.
Okay.
[MUSIC]
Here it is again.
[MUSIC]
What was that one?
If you sang cuckoo, that's wrong.
Too bad.
[LAUGH] It's busy bee.
Again going up.
So here's this line note.
We're gonna draw to the next space note it
was actually hanging off the staff.
That's okay, that's our D.
Okay, excellent.
Let's do some clap backs.
Ready, these are gonna have some rests in
them so if you wanna watch me it's okay.
Here's the first one.
I'll do each one twice.
One, one, one, two.
Again.
[SOUND] One, one, one, two.
Your turn.
Ready?
One, one, one, two.
Did you keep with me?
Okay.
Here's the next one.
Listen.
One, one rest, rest.
One, two, three, four.
Again.
One, one, rest, rest.
One, two, three, four.
Wanna give it a try?
We'll go a little slower.
Your turn.
Ready, go.
One, one, rest, rest.
One, two, three, four.
Remember to do a motion on every single
one,
because we want our bodies to always be
feeling a beat.
Okay last one.
Here we go.
One, two, rest, rest one, two, three,
four.
This one's tricky.
Watch it again.
Listen carefully.
One, two, three, four, one, two, three,
four.
You give it a try.
Ready?
Go.
One, two, three, four.
One, two, three, four.
Okay, great.
Now we go on to play F's.
You can sing them back or play back.
Either one is fine.
I'll be starting on F, using one, two,
three, two, one.
So here we go.
Here's the first one.
Turn around.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Here it is again.
[MUSIC]
Okay, your turn.
And here's the answer.
One, two, three, two three.
That what you did?
I thought so.
Okay.
Here's the next one.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Hear this again.
[MUSIC]
Okay.
Your turn.
Ready, go.
I hope you watched that rest, there was a
rest in there.
Here's the answer.
One, two, three, rest.
[MUSIC]
Okay last one.
You're doing great.
Here's our last one.
Ready go.
[MUSIC]
Again.
Okay your turn.
Here's the answer.
One, one, three, three, two, one.
Lots of repeats and lots of skips,
I think you got that one though you're
getting to be a pro at this.
Really train those ears great okay
excellent watch the rest of the answer
videos after you've practiced all the
pieces at least five days.
