1927 by W Otto Canoe and I O down the river we float my boat Just you and the river my dog and I The wavelets shimmer they glow they show The sun has grown dimmer the dusk is nlghr IWe shoot the rapids The roaring rapids so wild so Now into the calm bayou and through And on to the rolling bowling sea Otto Miessner Water and Music seem always to have had a fondness for each other The waves beat their rhythms on the shore The brook sings its lovesong to the sea The rivulet and the make own peculiar Music With this wonder Music of Nature for men to marvel at it is not sur prising that poets have made verses and composers have made songs to toe river and the sea Rubinstein wrote an Ocean sohn his Hebrides his Barcarolle I am sure you have often heard the last piece at least Sailors have their chanties with their Yeo Heave Ho Landlub bers too have their rowing boating songs Do you know the famous Volga Boatmen song Even our southern darkies working on the levies could not resist singing to the accompaniment of the mighty Mississippi It seems quite fitting therefore that the Melody Way Club should have its own Boat Song Lightly Row is the favorite piece of all the Melody Way pupils and I hope youTI Uks it too Analyze 1 Rhythm Name the measure sign What kind of measure Which note gets one beat Which note getd two beats Which note gets three beats Study first the rhythm of the melody Only ttaeeHnds of rhythmic measures or motifs are present i at 9 Observe that each phrase is made up of two measures This is the first piece you have had that contains two periods Such a Form is called a Form Altogether the melody contains only six motifs white accompani ment contains but two chords Notice that the phrase a occurs three times that the phrase e is a sequence of the phrase d that a 2 is a sequence of a 1 and that e 2 is a sequence of d 2 Now see if you can follow the diagram or man and play the Melody rom memory Next add the accompaniment You will be amazed to discover how quickly you can memorize pieces by this method of mapping the form or structure 6 The Mood Prom what you hare learned of my intentions in writing the aecom janiment to sound like waves splashing you will know that the L H must play quietly but evenly while the song in the R H sings out Let your Melodies sins under the fingers That is one of the secrets of beau playing Transposition Having learned Lightly Row so quickly and easily in E Major four sharps you might try it in the other five familiar key ol C D F G A Const J J 8 J The first two becamefamiliar to you in Magic third In Baby It is interesting to discover that so long a piece can be composed of so few rhythmic groups is it not Now notice the L H rhythm that accompanies the Melody It keeps going over in eighth notes two to each count but grouped in fours for convenience In arranging this piece I wished this eighth note rhythm to remind you of the lapping of the waves against the sides of the boat as if they were saying 3 skip ping slip ping Count Speak 1 dip ping 2 drip J J Say these words marking time with your foot Drum the rhythm conntinjr time aloud Once you feel the rhythms it is not necessary nor even desirable to keep on tapping and counting The chief value m count ing measures is in analyzing the rhythms and getting or feeling the molHm 2 Melody Study the Key Signature many sharps Name them in order from left to right Where is Do on the staff What is Dos letter name In what key is Lightly Row Name the letter names of Do Re Mi Pa So Locate Tncsc Melodic Motifs in the Piece 1 So Mi Mi many

KeyFinder 2 At the Piano with KeyFinder 3 At the Piano following notes 3 Harmony At first glance the L H accompaniment appears difficult However yon will soon be pleasantly surprised to find only two chords in the entire old friends the I and V Chords They are broken chords in these forms I l Do Mi So Ml STi 2 Ml Do So Mi How often can you find the first form of I How often can you find the second form of I How often can you find the broken V chord Remember the rhythm of the four eights Play the L H accom paniment first practicing each broken chord separately First on the KeyBoard with ChordFinder Second at the Piano with ChordFinder Third at the Piano following notes 4 Form Before attempting to play Lightly Row with both hands it wil help vou to SK the Form Study this diagram of v

mean 1 Play the chord forms say in E Major 2 Let someone play them while you guess tonenames and letter names 3 Write each in notes on 3x5 cards 4 Let some friend show one card at a tune two you name the kind of chord also tonenames and letter names Then play it Music Vocabulary These chord forms are the harmonic materials with which composers work By studying them you add to your Music rocabnlarr just as you would to your speech vocabulary if you looked up other words mean ing the same as for example hurry hurry hasten quicken rush run You can increase your Melodic vocabulary by familiar figures and inventing sequences loi them 1 Do Re Mi 2 Do Mi 3 So Ml Re Mi Pa Re Pa Fa Re Mi Fa So Mi So Ml Do 4 Do Re Mi Pa 6 So Pa Mi Re Re Mi Fa So Fa Mi Re Do KeyBoard Sequences Furthermore you can begin to escape from your present limited five finger position by playing the above sequences on the piano first in the key of C because all the keys are white For example try this Begin on Do or C and go up the KeyBoard usrng only the first second and third fingers The thumb starts one key higher each time Then try it with the second and fourth fingers Written Transposition It will be fine practice for you to write out one transposition for each piece Follow the first four steps as shown in the ninth lesson so as to irrange your page in an orderly way The signature will depend upon the new key you chooee The time of the notes will be the same as in the original key The position of the notes will depend upon the position of your new teynoteDo Decide then upon which key you will use and sketch upon scratch paper the notes in that key for the following 1 Do Re Mi Fa So 2 I TV VI Thereafter as you write each Melody note or each chord of the piece you are transposing refer to the sketch As in copying take the remaining steps sec ninth 5 Write the transposed Melody 6 Write the words 7 Write the transposed chords Do you think I am asking too much by suggesting that yon copy pieces and write out transpositions Then remember that this more than any other practice will help you to read Music and to memorize it The real joy of making Music comes when you can express yourself freely Listen to the great pianists at concerts thronyh the phonograph in the reproducing piano or on the radio They all play from memory Shall we discover I wonder a Paderewski a Joseph Hofman or a
