Today I invite you to write a short review about your experience of learning with my method. You don't have to publish it, but writing a short paragraph about it will help you organize your own thoughts and observations.
Think about your child before and after you started this musical journey and understand how thoughtful you are as a parent.
Today we will talk about the importance of the family environment in learning.
When teaching a child, the best results are achieved when he sees and does what his parents and others can do, especially if they do it with pleasure.
If playing the piano becomes a favorite activity of his mother and father, older brothers and sisters, then the child will also be drawn to the instrument. Our method helps those around the child learn music well.
This is not a case of lessons where one is learning while others are passively watching. It is necessary that parents try to make it their goal to organize time for the whole family in such a way that piano playing and musical games are included in family leisure.
Parents can also follow the child's lessons and work with the same material as the child, but it is better when they participate in the adult course and thus stay ahead of their children.
1. Play R the right hand of the Ganon No. 1
exercise added to the library using the Gentle Piano®
2. Exercises for setting hands O.M. Egorova "Steps with fingers". This exercise helps to simulate the movements of fingers and hands outside the keyboard space, which helps not to be distracted by additional difficulties and to understand the muscle specifics of "walking" on the keys:
3. Repeat all previous exercises.
This module helps the player to memorize a corresponding note name for any line or space of the Bass and Treble staves.
Using the LEFT or RIGHT arrows, move the baskets to catch a note, represented as a fruit or flower bud, with a basket having the corresponding note name. Green and brown trees represent vertical Treble and Bass staff lines. Gradually they will change to normal horizontal thin black lines. Use the SPACE key to make notes fall faster into the correct basket. You have 90 levels and 10 different representations of the Bass and Treble staves to complete and finish the module.
Computer control keys
Be sure to switch Num Lock off if you use the number pad keys!
LEFT arrow - Move falling notes left or down.
RIGHT arrow - Move falling notes right or up.
Space key - Make note fall faster.
A - Switch the program to Alphabetic (A, B, C ...) note names
I - Switch the program to Italian (Solfeggio: Do, Re, Mi...) note names
Ctr-X - Exit the program.
Try to use the Left or Right arrow to move the closest correct basket to the fruit.
- Play several notes in a row correctly (the number depends of the module stage) and the program will switch to the next level of difficulty. You will get more points, but the notes will move faster. If you make two mistakes in a row, the module will switch to a lower level of difficulty.
This module develops the skills to recognize the corresponding note name for any line of the Alphabetical or Solfeggio note order to choose a correct note name. Thus, it trains another important skill - to relate one note to another and to easily read notes in forward or backward sequences. An advanced student can finish this module in 40 minutes (21 minutes of module time), but beginners should start by only playing for a short time. Please, contact our professionals for your customized guidelines for playing this module!
