Letter from the Kingdom of Tune #2: Princess Subdominant: We are still looking for the briefcase, but found new adventures!
This is Princess Subdominant again...
How are you? Do you already know how to find my key, the Princess Subdominant's Key? Share this secret with your friends! The main thing is to be able to quickly distinguish where there are 3 black keys, and where 2. Strange as it may seem, many children do not immediately notice the difference. Well, you'll tell them, okay?
My key is at three black keys!
But my dad does not often see a difference! Not in the keys, though, but in the briefcases. This morning he came into my room with a very guilty look! In his hands was my Mom's striped bag.
This bag Queen Tonic calls "White cat -- a black cat"! At our Soft Mozart Academy, everyone learns to play this exercise. It alternates black and white keys (cats) and a mouse! And in this bag, my mom keeps the best results of children from our Academy!
Do you know how to play this exercise by the way? I can teach you now! Look at these pictures carefully:
Here is the picture for your right hand:
Here is for your left:
Thumb - White cat, Middle finger - Black cat. Press the white keys with your thumb and black with your middle finger. And let your fingers walk among all the keys! The main thing is to see the mouse just in time! The mouse is your pointer. If you place it on the key of a cat, you lose the game
Watch this video. My mom made it long time ago. It will help you to learn the exercise:
Dad asked me:
"Princess, can you go to the Academy tomorrow with this bag, if we do not find your own briefcase?"
Can you imagine ?!
"Well, how about it, Daddy?" I said to him. “In this bag, two cats and a mouse. And I need to learn Bach and Mozart! They are in MY BRIEFCASE!”
I was even upset that he did not see the difference!
And then my Cat Mimimi suddenly said:
"Do not touch the cat and mouse bag! I'll help you find your briefcase! I know who took it! Move away from this bag. You will confuse the black and white keys!"
Can you imagine? Mimimi knew who took my bag and had been hiding such important information all this time!
I'm sorry, but I need to talk to him now!
Be sure to learn the exercise "White Cat -- Black Cat" and show how all your friends to play it! It would be great if I could watch your video and see your progress. By the way, in music schools the exercise is called "Chromatic Scale."
Do not miss our next letter!
Your friend from the Kingdom of Tune, Princess Subdominant
