Firstly this lesson includes audio which requires Quicktime installed. It can be downloaded here. Also, use the virtual piano if you’re not able to get to one at home:
if (WIDGETBOX) WIDGETBOX.renderWidget(‘4190c399-fbd3-4146-af29-a0767493d78d’);Get the Computer Keyboard Piano widget and many other great free widgets at Widgetbox! Not seeing a widget? (More info)
will begin by identifying each note we hear as we sing it. Let’s start with C
“C” (Sing back)
sing all the notes from C to C i.e. C,
D, E, F, G, A, B, C
are eight notes from C (the first note) to C (the eighth note).
C- C is can be applied to solfage so C is “Do”, D is “Ray”, E = “Me”, F =
“Far”, G = “So”, A = “La”, B “Tee”, then C = Do (and an Octave above)
will now play the sequence of repeated notes but this time after each one
identifying them by their position.
Since there are eight notes from C to C above, C is the 1st position, D is 2, E is 3 etc etc. Do this
away from the Piano/keyboard first, then on the piano.
sing from C to D four times identifying
by note e.g.”CD, CD, CD, CD”
- From C to E four
times e.g.”CE, CE, CE, CE”
- From C to F four
times e.g. ”CF, CF, CF, CF”
- From C to G four
times e.g. ”CG, CG, CG, CG”
- From C to A four
times e.g. ”CA,
- From C to B four
times e.g. ”CB, CB, CB, CB”
- From C to C four
times e.g. ”CC, CC, CC, CC”
we’ll repeat the process but set to music. There will be a 4-count beat before
starting. Ready? Here we go: (music plays) –DONE
did you do? Do these exercises regularly (i.e everyday) and after a while it will slowly sink in.
