Joseph, what is a sharp or flat on the staffs?
That’s a really great question! The sharps and flats on the staffs are indicated by symbols. The flat symbol looks like a lowercase b, and the sharp symbol looks like a little tic-tac-toe board. To make a note sharp or flat on the staff, you just put the symbol next to the note. So for example, an F sharp would be an F note with a sharp symbol next to it, and an A flat would be an A note with a flat symbol next to it. Does that make sense?
Hy Mr. Hoffman,
My brothers and I like to watch your puppet shows and I really like the “Chocolate” puppet show.
We wish you did puppet shows in Unit 3.
I’m so glad you enjoy our puppets! I apologize that some lessons are missing funny endings – we’re working to fix that. In the meantime, you’ll be happy to know that once you get to Unit 4, all the videos will have special endings from there on!
I am glad to hear that!????
so fun to play with the speed of the video
I agree! I sound a little sleepy when you slow the video down, but it gets a little crazy when you speed it way up! I hope that our normal speed is the best pace for learning, though. 🙂
This is so easy for me. I know how to play all sorts of song and lyricists to
the songs I learned from you and some. I learned some by myself like Mary had
a little lamb and all that stuff.
That’s great! I’m glad you’re taking time to review, even if it feels easy right now. Mastering the basics is a great way to strengthen your musical foundation, and better prepares you for more challenging lessons in the future. Good luck and happy playing!
Hello Mr. Hoffman,
I just finished this lesson and enjoyed the note guessing games! I got them all correct.
Hello Mr. Hoffman,
my daughter Isabella (11years) is very interested in your lessons. So I did a fast look to all if your lessons and I saw, that the first lesson I can see in HD quality an then only in max. 480 points.??????
Thank you for an answer!
When we first started making video lessons six years ago, they were very low-quality recordings using a tiny hand-held flip camera. Over the years, we have gradually upgraded our earliest lessons to match the HD quality of the lessons from Unit 4 onward. However, we’re not quite done upgrading, so there are several lessons left in the lower quality. I apologize for that, but encourage you to persevere – our later units are all HD quality with lots of fun puppet endings. I hope that helps! 🙂
I just learned how to play Martin Garrix Animals on the piano!
I hurt my arm so I cant play with my left
Sorry to hear that! For now, just practice with your right hand, and when your left is feeling better, you can get caught up! I hope your arm gets better soon. Happy playing! Mr. Hoffman
