I love I have a dog it’s my favorite piano song
I have the best piano teacher that’s you mister hoffman
thank you! this class is perfect:)
Hello Mr. Hoffman,
will we ever learn how to play the intros for “Silver Birch Tree” and “Dinah”? The intros are so beautiful, I would love to learn them eventually!
Thanks for being a great teacher, Moriah
Great question! I would definitely consider making a bonus lesson on that but I have no specific plans yet. – Mr. Hoffman
Oh, ok! That would be awesome! I love ALL of your lessons, you are a awesome teacher! Thanks so much for everything! I look forward to doing your lessons every day.
Dude I need new bonus lessons and when are you going to teach me the full song of jingle bells
We have two more bonus lessons in the works right now, but I’m afraid I don’t plan to teach the rest of “Jingle Bells” in the near future. However, free sheet music for multiple versions of varying difficulty for the full song of “Jingle Bells” is available at G Major Music Theory. Good luck and happy playing! – Mr. Hoffman
Hi, Mr. Hoffman!
My name is Laura and I love playing the piano with you!
For Grinding Corn, I improvised a little. At ‘Grains of red and yellow’ and ‘blue and white corn we are’, I play fingers 5 and 1 together and hold it for 2 beats. Then I keep finger 5 down and move finger 1 over to D.
Hope you like it!
That’s wonderful, Laura!
I like your explanations.
In this lesson you said MI RE DO while playing F E D, but in french MI RE DO mean C B A.
Hello Michel ou should I say bonjour ?
The solfa pattern do, ré, mi,… changes whereas the notes A, B, C,… on the keyboard don’t. Just have a look at the early lessons in unit 1 you will understand.
Hello again Michel,
Be careful ! A is la !
So, C is do, D is ré, E is mi, F is fa (that’s an easy one to remember), G is sol, A is la and B is si.
