Puppet Video Piano Lessons: 31 to 60 - SPRING OFFER: 50% DISCOUNT

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

Things you will know after completing videos 31 to 60:

  • You will be able to play on the piano using a New finger position – the “Owl’s Glasses Fingers”, in addition to using “Owl’s Eyes Fingers”.
  • How to focus on the correct arm, elbow and finger positions.
  • How to understand Steps and Skips, and Up and Down, on both the piano keyboard and the musical staves.
  • You will be able to appreciate the difference between 4 beats in a bar (Marching) and 3 beats in a bar (Dancing a Waltz).
  • How to practise and deepen your knowledge of D, B and E, and learn the positions of the Ant and the Goose closest to middle C on the musical staves, and the positions of all the Geese on the piano keyboard.
  • You will be able to sing and play the 21 new musical pieces in Book 1 from pages 14 to 30.
  • How to sing and play from the Blank Book, including Ant and Goose.
  • You will be able to play pieces where your red and blue hands play different sequences of notes at the same time – called playing “Hands Together”.
  • You will be able to sight-sing and sight-read using Egg, Dog, Bird, Ant and Goose.
  • Various musical games, including copy games, “pretending” games, “Spot the Mistakes”,  “humming” games, and dancing.
  • How to improve technique, dynamics, rhythm patterns, and singing, via improvisations  and “playing stories”.
  • You will be able to perform pieces that you have composed in the style of a March or a Lullaby.
  • You will be able to listen and recognize Dog, Bird, Egg, Ant and Goose by ear, and link this with  the use of body movement and reading the Large Coloured Staves.
  • How to memorize rhythm patterns, and short musical phrases.
  • You will be able to March, Count, Clap and Drum, simultaneously with your teacher/helper, but with different rhythm patterns.
  • How to tap the 16 rhythm/tapping exercises from pages 16 to 28.

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.

* Follows on from Part I. Parts I and III are available separately or sold together with part II 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).
