Hoffman Academy Piano Lesson 2 Musical Alphabet
Hello and welcome back. I'm Joseph Hoffman. Today we are going to learn about the musicalphabet. But wait Mr. Hoffman, we already know thealphabet! Well, the musical alphabet is a little bitdifferent from the regular alphabet you already know. Let's come and take a look at how it works. I'm going to lay out the letters of the musicalalphabet, and as you see each letter let's say it together.
Here we go. A B C D E. Wait Mr. Hoffman, this still looks like theregular alphabet! I know just wait, we are getting there. F,G. Now let's pause. Here's where things start to get different. In music, the next letter after G is A. Andthen it starts over again. There is no H in music. So after A comes B and let's keep going C,D, E, F, G. Now can you think of the letter that comesafter Gé If you said A, you are correct.
It starts over again. A, B, C, D, E, F, G.Then what should come nexté That's right, another A, but I'm out of cards. On your piano though the notes keep goinghigher and higher. Every time you go up a letter it's going upone note higher on your piano. Now let's take a look at the whole thing. Here we have the whole musical alphabet thatwe've drawn today. Let's try singing the musical alphabet song. Now I'm warning you, try not to sing H. Rememberthere is no H in music.
Let's see if we can do it. Ready. Here wego. A B C D E F G, A B C D E F G A B C D E F G, A B C D E F G A B C D E F G, A B C D E F G Great job. Now, to review what we've donetoday, let's play a couple of games. This first game is called alphabet towers. I've drawn the music alphabet starting withA at the bottom, but there are a few missing letters that I'llneed your help to figure out.
Let's say the letters together. A, B. Whatletter should go hereé If you said C, you are correct. C, D, E. Whatletter should go hereé If you said F, you are correct. F, G. Good let's sing the whole thing from the bottom. A B C D E F G. Great job. Now in music you can start with a differentletter on the bottom if you want to. So let's try another tower with D on the bottom.
This time there are even more missing letters. So we are starting on D. Now can you thinkof the note that's a step above Dé Just think of the next letter of the alphabet. What is ité Let's see. If you said E, youare correct. If you couldn't remember that, just starton A and in your mind think A, B, C D and then you can think that the next letteris E. Now what's the next letter after Eé If you said F, you are correct.
Hoffman Academy Piano Lesson 1 First Song
Hello and welcome. I'm Joseph Hoffman. Today we're going to be learning a few ofthe basics about the piano and by the end of this lesson you'll be playingyour first song on the piano. So let's come over and get started. First thing you'll probably notice about thepiano is wow, a lot of keys here. Well it's actually quite simple. The furtheryou go to the left the lower the sound. Playing piano Here we have the low notes of the piano,
and the further we go up to the right, weget to the high notes. Now, let's experiment with your own piano. I want you to find a place up in the highrange and then one note at a time just keep playing each note higher and higher until you getto the very highest note. And there on my piano is the very highestnote. Good, now let's go back to the low end. Find a low note on your piano, and let's goone note at a time lower and lower playing
every note until you get to the very lowest note on yourpiano. Good now let's take a look at the patternsof the black keys. What can you tell me about how the black keysare grouped togetheré You probably noticed that there are groupsof two and three. Let's say how many are in each group thatI point to. Ready two, three, two, three, two, three,two three. That pattern continues all the way up thepiano.
Now let's try going down. Two, three, two,three, two. Just one lonely black key down here. It really ought to be a group of three, butthey decided to make this the lowest note way back when they invented the piano, andso that one has to be all by itself. Sorry little black key. Now that you know where the high notes andthe low notes are, and about the groups of two and three blackkeys, you are ready to learn your first song.
The first song you are going to learn is quot;HotCross Bunsquot;. This song comes from hundreds of years agoin England back when kids used to have to help their families earn enough money to liveand they would go around the town selling bread. A hot cross bun is a special kind of rollthat would have a cross shape on it And in England back then just like the icecream truck comes and you hear the sound of the ice cream truck coming you know youwant to go buy some ice cream. The kids would sing this song around the streetsso people would know it was
time to buy bread, and they would come outand buy the bread. Here's quot;Hot Cross Bunsquot;. Hot Cross Buns. Hot Cross Buns. One a penny,two a penny. Hot Cross Buns. Let's sing quot;Hot Cross Bunsquot; together againand this time I'd like to show you some hand signs to goalong with it. If you were to touch some bread right outof the oven, you might go like this because it was hotso we are going to go quot;Hotquot; and then on the word
