Puppet Video Piano Lessons: 61 to 91 - SPRING OFFER: 50% DISCOUNT

One year’s online access to Part III* of “Dorian and Miss Bell: Piano Lessons in the Forest”. Six 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 61 to 91:

  • You will be able to play using the  new “Owl’s Goggles” and “Owl’s Binoculars” finger positions, and to mix them with “Owl’s Eyes” and “Owl’s Glasses” fingers,
  • You will understand how to use dynamics in written notation, not just in “story playing”.
  • How to tap the final 12 rhythm exercises in Book 1, and towards the end be able to tap with “Open Binoculars Fingers”.
  • How ready you are to use “Open Fingering”, by going through the first piece in Book 2.
  • The numbers of ALL your fingers on both your Red and Blue hands.
  • The positions of all the Cats and Fish on the piano keyboard, and the position of the middle Cat on the musical staves. Also the positions of the first Goose above middle C, and the Fish just below and just above middle C on the musical staves.
  • You will be able to sing and play the last 12 musical pieces in Book 1.
  • You will be able to sing and play Cat and the low and high Fish from the Blank Book, as well as reinforcing your knowledge of G, A, B, D and E through practice.
  • How to play “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” from the Nursery Rhyme Book.
  • You will be able to sing the blue hand part or the red hand part of a piece while playing the other part on the piano – this is much harder than playing the piece with both hands.
  • How to March, Count, Clap and Drum more complicated rhythm patterns, including syncopation, and to read these without your helper.
  • You will be able to read and tap very short notes  (quavers/eighth notes).
  • You will be able to count the beat aloud and evenly, while playing a piece.
  • How to play a multi-player listening (ear training) game called ”Win the Tiles”.
  • You will be able to hear the difference between perfect fifths and octaves, and to find and play them starting from any musical animal.
  • How to play Happy (major) and Sad (minor) Chords on the piano, and to hear the difference between the two.
  • You will be able to compose duets and count aloud together with your helper (partner) as you play, or add lyrics to them instead of counting the beat.
  • You will understand what is meant by transposition, and will be able to use it to play the beginning of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” starting on each of the musical animals.
  • You will be able to receive your well-deserved Certificate, to celebrate finishing the book.

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 II. Parts I and II are available separately or sold together with part III 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).
