What to practice: Beyblade Burst Turbo (piano and singing), March on D-E-F, Mister Bluebird

How to practice it most effectively: For March on D-E-F and Mister Bluebird, we are introducing treble clef notes D, E and F. Note which of these letters are in the spaces (D and F) and the lines (E). When we are stepping, like in these songs, on the staff notes will move from line to space or space to line. On the piano we just play the very next letter (up or down). These songs are just for RH! For Beyblade Burst Turbo, please try playing the chorus (“Gonna take the victory…”) with both RH and LH. The LH chords are:\

  • “Gonna take the victory” C major, G major
  • “Bursting out in overdrive” E minor, D major
  • “The warrior will take the lead” C major, G major
  • “Beyblade burst turbo” A major, B major

Then it repeats for the second half! Please remember that LH’s C major and E minor chords come in before the RH melody. You can try singing the melody with lyrics along with the RH melody (take LH out while singing just so you don’t have to focus on 3 things at once!).

What to practice: Rockin’ Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu

How to practice it most effectively: You can start off by playing this song hands separately – there is a lot of repetition in the melodic ideas! LH does the same 5th – step up pattern for almost the entire piece, you just have to check if the bottom note is G or low D. Remember that your accidentals last for a whole bar. G is the home note and our key for this piece – RH is often coming back to that 2nd treble clef line. There are many semitones in this song (like from A# to B, or F#-G-G#-A). As always, please try to follow the written fingerings, and use your clef sayings for the lines and spaces if you need help figuring out a note! Feel free to revisit songs like Rockin’ Robin or Bye, Bye, Love over the break. Thank you for your hard work and have a great summer!

What to practice: Old Uncle Bill, Love Somebody, reading ahead in your book!

How to practice it most effectively: For Old Uncle Bill, LH is playing together intervals (either a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th) while RH has the melody. RH make sure you hold your dotted half note while LH plays underneath. For Love Somebody, be really careful with the direction each hand is moving in when they play together. RH, do your best to play connected under the slurs. You’re absolutely ready to read ahead in your book this summer, as you move into playing with intervals like 5ths. Thank you for all your hard work and enjoy your summer break!
