1. Introduction: Hi. Welcome to this last. This last is a number five in the piano technique. One a one series, and this class is dedicated to a very special thing. I just call it repeating notes. Well, what's this? Who needs this course? Well, any music piano student that wants to start playing pin or already playing? Maybe there are a stuff of person and you have been playing piano for many years. Well, this course is going to help you. Why? Because as pianist, sometimes we need to be able to repeat. We need to repeat many times the same note, and there's a special technique. Why is this important? Well, because there's a risk. There's the risk. If you don't play this correctly, you can get tired. You can lose control. Your rhythm can change and not be appropriate, and you can't get injure. You really can have this problem. So even if you think it's a very small thing, it's necessary to be able to practices in the correct way. This class has 100% practical videos, so no previous knowledge is required, and I'm going to give you some important tips and exercises so you can develop this skill and we prepare when any song requires this from you. My name is since illusory. I'm going to be your instructor. Dirt teetering This last name be happy to share, would you? Oldest tapes that have helped meet Truman e years and have held my students as well. Thank you and vault today to this class. 2. Repeating Notes 1,3 : this exercise. I'm going to give you, give you a very port on tape. Sometimes where we're playing, we need to repeat the same note many times on. Sometimes we need to do it really fast. Well, here's the tape. Very important. You never never repeat the same note with the same single. Because if I I need to repeat this seat and I do it with finger many, many times, what is going to happen that I'm going to lose control because my finger is going to get tired so I can really tired. Get tired on my muscles can get hurt so we don't want that. What we're going to do is that if you need to repeat the same note, you need to play to change fingers. So you're going to play with finger want country In this exercise, I'm going to you. Maybe you cannot see. But as you can see, all my fingers are close like this. Right at the scene now trying to play four times this C 1234 and then 1234 1234 1234 234 Always on terminating finger tree and one. Now I'm going to play with my left hand finger. One and tree I bring all my life The relaxing exercises. My hunch. Blake. 1234 123412341234 1234 1234 1234 1234 So this is a very good idea. If you need to play many times the same note, try changing fingers. This exercise I showed you how to play using finger number one and three. 3. Repeating Notes 1,2,3 : Now let's keep practicing. Playing the same note seven all time that now we are going to use other fingers instead of playing with finger number one and tree. We are going to use finger tree to someone. So this trade figures were going to do. I'm going to bring all my fingers close to my thumb and I'm going to begin with finger number tree. So I'm going to do tree 213 to 1 on. Go to practices twice with each note. 321 dream Teoh want. Then I'm going to the next the next note. Don't play too fast. You can't go back to the CEO if you need. This exercise is going to help you. If you need to play faster, would like this way. This is a good idea to breakfast. In this way, I'm going to play with my left hand 4. Repeating Notes 1,2,3,4 : Now let's practice one more exercise, repeating the same note several times. But in this location I'm going to use Finger number four to eat to someone. It's very rare not coming to play. 54321 So I'm just going to play for tree to one, going to bring on my fingers to the center. So I'm going to play for Treat. To what? I'm going to practice his tryst in each note. Good E No. 4321432143214321 Going down. Going back. Thank you, Blake. Passing slow. That's necessary. E. I want to play with my left hand for tree to want, so I bring on my fingers close to myself. I'm going to bring a plate. 43214 Drink, too. Going back for treat 214 So practice this several times in very slow way, and this is really, really going to help you to play several times. The same note 5. 2 Notes Phrase: Now let's play this exercise that is going to help your to play two notes phrase. If you need to play two notes like this very general musical law, I can say that is that the 1st 1 is going to be played louder than the 2nd 1 So what I what I would like you to do is to play the 1st 1 like this and then the 2nd 1 very, very PM very slow. Now you're going to play one more time. So, Dan, like this, then I'm going to play the older then the e note. Softer night. It's well, now how about going back? No. If e Dan de and D. C I'm going to play with my left hand, Take your time. Don't play too fast. I need to live a day beginning off each phrase No, Now I'm going back. Jeanne See? So this is the important play. Not fast, very slow. So you can control the south And next time that you need to play two notes phrase a phrase that has to note Well, the 1st 1 must be louder.
