This
is Peery Habits Level three, Practical
Lesson number eight, ear exercises.
So, we're starting with the LNM, Lesson
and Musicianship, 1B,
page 39, right at the bottom where it
says, writing the notes.
So, open up page 39 and get a pencil.
I'm gonna play the given note, and then
either a second or a third away.
We've done this before.
And I want you to draw that note.
So, listen whether it sounds like Busy
Bee, or Cuckoo Bird.
So, here's the first one.
Turn around so you don't see me.
Okay.
[MUSIC]
Here it is again.
[MUSIC]
Which one did that sound like?
If you said.
[MUSIC]
That is correct.
So, drawing it, since it's a third.
Cuckoo Bird is a third.
You're gonna go from space note, up to the
next space note.
[MUSIC]
Okay, let's try the next one.
[MUSIC]
Here it is.
[MUSIC]
Again.
[MUSIC]
What so, what song did that sound like?
If you sang.
[MUSIC]
That is correct.
So, that's a second.
So, you're gonna draw, from the space, to
the very next line note.
That's like our Busy Bee song.
Okay.
Last one.
Here we go.
[MUSIC]
Again.
[MUSIC]
That was a second as well.
So, let's draw in the space note to the
very next line note, is a second.
And there's your answer.
Now turn to page 40, and we'll do some
clap backs, and play backs.
You can do the musical chairs, by
yourself, without the video.
Okay, so let's start the echo game clap
backs.
I'm gonna clap.
You can watch me if you need to, cuz there
are lots of rests in this.
I'm gonna clap twice, and then you're
going to repeat.
Here we go.
Ready, go.
1, 2, 3, 4.
1, 2, 3, 4.
Here it is again.
This is getting tricky.
1, 2, 3, 4.
1, 2, 3, 4.
Okay.
Your turn.
Ready, go.
1, 2, 3, 4.
1, 2, 3, 4.
Were you able to get that?
That one was very tricky.
Let's do another one.
Ready?
One, two, ready, go.
1, 2, 3, 4.
1, 2, 3, 4.
This is hard.
Here, here it is again.
Ready, go.
1, 2, 3, 4.
1, 2, 3, 4.
Okay.
Here you go.
Could you get that?
Your turn.
Ready, go.
1, 2, 3, 4.
1, 2, 3, 4.
All right.
How did you do?
That had a lot of rests in there.
And now let's do some play backs.
We're going to start on G.
You can either sing, or play, whichever
you prefer.
So, we're gonna do.
[MUSIC]
Too high for me.
Here's the first one, ready?
Gonna play it twice.
[MUSIC]
Again.
[MUSIC]
Okay, go ahead.
Here's the answer.
Ready, go.
[MUSIC]
Had a little bit tricky rhythm.
Let's do one more.
Also starting on G.
Here we go.
Don't look.
[MUSIC]
Here it is again.
[MUSIC]
Your turn.
Starting on G.
Okay, here's the answer.
[MUSIC]
Did you get it?
All right, that's it for our ear
exercises.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
This
is Peery Habits, Level 3, Practical Lesson
Number 8, Video Answers.
So you're watching these after you've
practiced for at least five days.
Or if you're really struggling, you can
kinda look and see how you're doing.
Okay, so we'll start with Lesson in
Musicianship one B page 39.
The tapping game, found right in the
middle of the page.
Okay let's clap these, so exercise number
one,
four beats per measure counting out loud.
One, two, three, four, one, two, three,
four, one two, three four, one, two,
three, four, one, two, three, four.
Exercise number two, six beats per measure
counting out loud.
One, two, three, four, five, six.
One, two, three, four, five, six.
One, two, three, four five six.
Hope you practiced that one, that was
tricky.
Okay and moving on to page 40, musical
chairs,
now you were supposed to write some rests,
in this instead of the notes so, you can
write wherever you want,
you didn't necessarily need to play this
but if you did, heres how it goes.
Right hand one on C above, left hand one
on middle C,
four beats per measure one, two, three,
four.
[MUSIC]
Two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
Page 41 yankee Doodle,
right hand starts finger two C above
middle,
left hand middle C finger two, four beats
per measure.
One, two, three, four.
[MUSIC]
Okay, with the duet one, two, three, four,
one, two, three, four.
[MUSIC].
Going on to solos, we had a piece in solos
this week,
it was Bat Dance, pages 18 to 19.
Starting with left hand middle C, three
and one.
Right hand on A and C, also fingers one
and three.
Three beats per measure one, two three,
one, two, three,
one, two, three, one, two, three, one, two
Three,
one, two, three one, three, two, three,
one, two,
three, one, two, three, one, two, three,
one, two,
three, one, two, three, one, two, three,
one,
two three one three, one, two, one, two,
three one, two,
three one, two, three one, two, three,
one, two, three.
This one sounds great with the duet.
Okay, ready?
One, two, three.
[MUSIC]
Okay, that's it, now if that was a lot or
you need to practice some of the pieces
some more, just keep practicing them.
Don't go on until Practical,
to Practical eight until you can play all
of those pieces right with me,
either when I'm playing the same notes as
you, or playing the duet part.
