Bee. – Great job on the intro and chords! Take them slow enough that you can change between them with no hesitation. To start, just get the 1st to 2nd chord smooth, then 2nd to 3rd, then all 3 together etc.
This week work on the RH melody by itself. Watch the Bbs from the key signature. The “mini” notes are called grace notes and they happen just slightly before the main note and smush together in a jazzy way. This is the key of the actual piece, so you can always slow down the real recording and play along.

F Major scale – this has Bb. LH standard fingering (you’ve got this already), but RH goes 1234 1234 which is weird for multiple reasons. Play it until you’re used to it.


Golden Hour – this is your home project, add on some vocal parts. We are using this arrangement so you can always make the computer play it to you.

Today we focused on ear training, we did minor/major 3rds, perfect 4ths, perfect 5ths, and octaves. You can do this at home too! 

We also did improv using the “Birds of a Feather” by Billie Eilish chord progression of D-Bm-Em-A.


Theme from Swan Lake – this piece is in A minor. Both hands share the melody, and solid 3rds are used as an accompaniment. You did a great job at this today!!

*New scale* A minor, natural and harmonic. Today we learnt about relative major and minors and how they share notes. C major and A minor are relative and share notes. So a natural A minor scale is just white notes beginning on A. Harmonic minor means to raise the 7th, so A B C D E F G# A. All same fingering as your other scales.

We played our triad patterns in A minor as well.
