I’m really happy with your progress Anastasiya, especially with how you are getting stronger with your finger movements. Do lots of repetitions of the chords and arpeggio exercises we did this week. Always make sure your fingers are bent not flat. Practice reading the first exercise in your Dozen-a-Day book. Always remember you can count from middle C. It’s ok to write the names of the notes underneath (at first). Keep up the good work!
Please work this week on the boogie woogie pattern. Try to find the fingering that as the most ease. Repeat it many many times so that it becomes second-nature to you. Choose one new piece from your book to learn. Don’t forget to bring your book next time. Thanks!
I’m really happy with your progress. Your hands and fingers are getting stronger and stronger all the time. Do lots of repetitions of the chords and arpeggio exercises we did this week. Always make sure your fingers are bent not flat. Please practice finding F, F#, D, D# all over the keyboard. Practice making major chords minor by moving the middle finger down one note. Please practice Twinkle Twinkle Little Star so you don’t have to look at your fingers when you play it. Good work!
The Swing piece is sounding really good. This week erase all of your pencil markings. Practice the fingerings for the following scales – C and G. Remember the patter for two octaves ascending is 123, 1234, 123,12345 and descending is the opposite. For the G scale it is a little different remember? Keep up the good work.
