Piano intensive course for adults-beginners. Lesson 4
Did you know?
The Grand Staff is not a 'set' of lines and spaces and Treble and Bass clefs - it is a system that integrates the music symbols and sounds.
It also makes more sense to count the lines of the Bass Clef from the Middle C down - not vice versa.
1. Keep practicing 5 finger exercise in different octaves
2. Hanon #1 play with separate and both hands with a metronome or beats.
Note Alphabet® - keep mastering the module. If you have steady progress, try to finish the entire game in 20 min. Make a screenshot or picture of the module "fireworks" and place it in your diary
*extra* if you are overachiever, try to play this module with different notes names: if you played ABC, switch to Do-Re-Mi and vice versa. (Press "a" for ABC and "i" for Do-Re-Mi)
H.Hiner 'Etudes for your eyes': LINES
It is not music composition. I made the exercises as less musical as possible to avoid any memorization of the material.
These exercises will help your eyes to focus on the lines and grasp corresponding keys simultaneously.
I recommend playing these etudes on 2, 4, 5 and 6 visual modes (press 2, 4, 5 or 6 on your computer keyboard). Use of 1 and 3 may distract you from the perception of the lines.
