For tutors and parents: a brief explanation about Pianoville piano tutorial.
How to make your pupil's first piano lesson ever a very enjoyable moment for him/her to remember? This tutorial brings an effective methodology that blends theory and practice in perfect accordance for a great first piano lesson. Enjoy!
On lesson 2 we will focus on the note middle C, and talk a bit more about music elements: bars, bar lines, time signature, note values, rhythm, clefs.
Time to get to know Busy Mum B and Dear Dad D.
Also, we are now introducing new theoretical elements:
repeat sign, rests and dotted notes.
Time to play hands together: B, C and D.
Time to meet Easygoing E and Angry Hungry A.
New theoretical elements: tie, staccato, dynamics.
In this video, we will work on the final two tunes from "Easygoing E and Angry Hungry A" section:
"Winter is coming" and "A sad song without words".
It is alright if you decide to teach both on the same day,
but I strongly recommend teaching each tune on separate days, as lessons 6 and 7, due to the technical demands of each piece.
Introducing fermata and the sustain pedal.
Focusing on dynamics: gradual and sudden changes.
Genius Grandad G loves Maths and Fit Grandma F runs every day.
She will run to show you what
quavers are about. Enjoy it!
Children love the "Incy wincey spider" folk tune! Enjoy teaching it with Pianoville, while introducing slurs and how to play legato to your pupils.
"Hold it tight!" Time to teach your pupil to play a two voices part with his right hand only. We will also talk about ledger lines on lesson 10.
"A, B, C, D, E, F, G": playing hands together, with change of position on the right hand.
Focus on articulation: time to learn couplets.
"The frog leaps and my fingers dance!"
Couplets and staccatos.
Time to meet Greedy Grandad G and Fancy Grandma F!
Meet Middle C's cousins B flat and F sharp!
Pianoville's last tune: "A family gathering".
Lesson 16: 1'30
