Puppet Video Piano Lessons: 1 to 30 - SPRING OFFER: 50% DISCOUNT

One year’s online access to Part I* of “Dorian and Miss Bell: Piano Lessons in the Forest”. Four and a half hours of video content for children of age 3 onwards, to be used in parallel with Dogs and Birds Book 1**.

Things you will know after completing videos 1 to 30:

  • Where the high and low notes are on the piano.
  • How to play using what we call the “Owl’s Eyes” finger position. This allows even three- or four-year-old children, who have relatively weak fingers, to start playing a full sized piano, using a technique that is an excellent foundation for developing a good hand position with curved fingers as they grow older.
  • You will be able to use both your blue (left) hand and your red (right) hand from the start, when playing pieces and tapping rhythm exercises.
  • The difference between long notes (crotchets/quarter notes), medium notes (minims/half notes) and short notes (semibreves/whole notes).
  • How to March, Count and Clap, to keep an even beat.
  • The geography of the piano including the positions of EVERY Dog, Bird, Egg and Ant (D, B, E, and A).
  • The positions of D, B and E closest to middle C on the musical staves.
  • How to sing and play Dog, Bird, and Egg from the Blank Book (which doesn’t have the pictures of the Animals in the noteheads).
  • You will be able to sing and play the first 15 musical pieces in Book 1 (up to page 14).
  • All the 15 rhythm/tapping exercises in Book 1 up to page 12 including starting to tap different rhythms in both hands at the same time. This is excellent preparation for playing pieces hands together later on.
  • How to listen and recognize Dog, Bird and Egg by ear.
  • You will be able to sight-sing and sight-read Egg, Dog and Bird.
  • How to paint different musical pictures on the piano, in order to develop important technique, and to express moods.
  • You will be able to compose simple musical phrases/sentences, and write them out on the coloured staves.

The Advantages of Following These Lessons

  • By watching each short video lesson your child will automatically pick up the singing, playing, tapping etc. by copying the puppets or the child demos.
  • Dorian, the Dog puppet, and Miss Bell, the Bird puppet, show you the approach to learning each musical element and, in a short insert, children demonstrate to you the final result of each lesson.
  • These video lessons help parents and teachers to organize a learning path for the child as they work together on this musical adventure. No previous knowledge of music is required from the parent/helper.
  • Games and toys are most important in a child’s life, and by using the finger puppets or their own toys, children will be more relaxed, imaginative and more connected during their practice time.
  • Children will experience the pleasure of making music and day by day you will be delighted to see the increase in their concentration span and coordination skills.

* Parts II and III are available separately or sold together with part I at a discount price.
** For best results it is suggested to use this course with the Dogs and Birds Book 1 Bundle, the Tiles and Staves Bundle, and the Dorian and Miss Bell Finger Puppets (all sold separately, or sold together with the full 91 lessons in the Puppet Video Bundle).
