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.
