Introduction to the classic tune "Greensleeves" including an explanation of what techniques will be covered in the process of learning to play this tune with Hugh Sung's unique teaching method.
- In the first piece we're going to work on, Greensleeves,…you're going to apply all that I've explained to you…in real life, in real time.…We're going to be playing…and reading notes right off the bat.…We're going to be using both hands together.…We're not going to waste much time.…You're going to be playing hands together,…but believe it or not, you can do it.…I'm going to show you how easy it is.…And hopefully you'll also see how easy it is to read music.…Music is written as a graph, as I've explained,…and you'll see it practically practiced.…Like I said, there's no way,…no better way to learn a language…than to really, simply, practice doing it.…
So this is our opportunity to take the ideas…that I've introduced to you, the note names,…the ledger lines, the staff lines, all that stuff,…we're going to put that right into practice,…right from the get-go, and make beautiful music…right at the start.…Okay, so are you set?…Ready?…All right, we're going to start with Greensleeves…and start reading music and playing hands together…
