The Girl From Ipanema (Garota De Ipanema)

The Girl From Ipanema: LadyDpiano



The Girl From Ipanema was recorded in 1963 by Antonio Carlos Jobim. It is one of my all-time favorite songs of the 60s. If you're not familiar with this one, here it is on YouTube.

Original words by Vinicius De Moraes
English words by Norman Gimbel
Music by Antonio Carlos Jobim

Key: F
Time: 4/4 Bossa Nova


FM7
Tall and tan and young and lovely

     G7
The girl from Ipanema goes walking,

    Gm7                   Gb7                   FM7    Gb9
And when she passes, each one she passes goes, "Ahhh."


 FM7
When she walks, she's like a samba

      G7
That swings so cool and sways so gentle,

      Gm7                  Gb7                    FM7
That when she passes, each one she passes goes, "Ahhh."


Bridge:

Gbmaj7                   Cb9
Oh, but I watch her so sadly;

F#m7                   D9
How can I tell her I love her?

 Gm7                         Eb9
Yes, I would give my heart gladly,

         Am7                      D7-9  
But each day when she walks to the sea,

     Gm7                         C7-9
She looks straight ahead, not at me.


FM7
Tall and tan and young and lovely

    G7
The girl from Ipanema goes walking,

    Gm7                 Gb7
And when she passes,  I smile,

               FM7   Gb7                FM7    Gb7
But she doesn't see,     no she doesn't see,

               FM7 Gb7 Fmaj7
No she doesn't see.

Music Quotes: Music Promotes Learning




Music Quotes: LadyDpiano



Music Promotes Learning

I was reading an article on the value of music education and learned once again about a documented truth that I firmly believe in. I hope you feel the same. I think this is why I am so passionate on teaching preschool-kindergarten children how to play the piano!

"Agnes Chan of the Chinese University of Hong Kong had released a study in 2003 finding that among 90 boys between ages 6 and 15, those who had musical training in school and lessons in classical music for one to five years scored better than those with no musical exposure on verbal memory tests. The study also found that those students who continued music studies showed continued improvement over others in vocabulary and memory. Chan speculates that music training provides a sensory stimulus to better develop the left temporal lobe of the brain."
Piano Practice: LadyDpiano

Teaching Goal


Some of my monthly goals for the new school year are to encourage students to be comfortably fluent in Major & Minor Scales,  reading chord charts, observing dynamics (echo playing), playing arpeggios smoothly, and learning I-IV-V chord progressions in every key.

Van Cliburn said, "I don't like to practice, never have. But when I do get started at the piano, for the first 10 minutes, I play scales slowly. I've done this all my life. Listen to the sounds you make. The sound of each tone will generate a response in you. It will give you energy."
Teaching Music and Steady Beat: LadyDpiano

Teaching Music and Steady Beat 

Music and math do go together! Preschool kids love learning repetitive patterns!

"Children with steady beat independence are better readers and more successful in mathematics. Steady beat seems to help in this area because it contributes to children's ability to concentrate, to understand space and distance, and to have better control of physical movements. Repetition is an essential component for building skills. Repetition builds understanding." -- Phyllis Weokart

Music Makes Your Mind Go: LadyDpiano.com
Discipline is a good thing!!

"Develop four new good habits each year. Instead of watching TV, read a good book or play the piano! It takes a minimum of 25 days for the brain to build the neural links required to make a new behavior a habit. I suggest practicing a new habit for three months to ensure that it sinks in. Once it becomes second nature, add another new habit. At three months per habit, there's time to add four each other. In five years you will have 20 new habits that will help fuel your success." -- Natalie Babbitt

Swedish Proverb: LadyDpiano


Treat children with respect. Recognize children's changing capabilities and have faith in their capacity to develop and learn. We must recognize the unique way in which children are children, not simply miniature adults. With piano lessons, children feel lovable valuable and competent!

Family is like Music: LadyDpiano


"Each second that we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that 2 and 2 make 4 and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move.
You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a BEETHOVEN! You have the capacity for anything! Yes, you are a marvel!!!" -- Pablo Casals

If you are a music teacher, I sincerely hope you have been encouraged to keep doing what you do! For those who are a beginner student, please be patient with yourself. It takes awhile to strengthen finger dexterity. Practice! You'll get it! Playing the piano is fun! Many of us enjoy being a part of a band or worship team. The chemistry with band members is marvelous and the thrill of performing is exciting! So many individuals play for their own enjoyment, such as a favorite hymn or gathering around the piano at Christmas, singing favorite songs. Be inspired! You have a gift! Keep it up!

Warmly,

Learn Did You Feel The Mountain Tremble?

Did You Feel The Mountains Tremble? l Delirious




Did you feel the mountains tremble?
Did you hear the oceans roar?
When the people rose to sing of
Jesus Christ the risen one

Did you feel the people tremble?
Did you hear the singers roar?
When the lost began to sing of
Jesus Christ the saving one

And we can see that God you're moving
A mighty river through the nations
When young and old return to Jesus
Fling wide your heavenly gates
Prepare the way of the risen Lord

Open up the doors and let the music play
Let the streets resound with singing
Songs that bring your hope
Songs that bring your joy
Dancers who dance upon injustice

Did you feel the darkness tremble
When all the saints join in one song
And all the streams flow as one river
To wash away our brokeness

And we can see that God you're moving
A time of Jubilee is coming
When young and old will turn to Jesus
Fling wide your heavenly gates
Prepare the way of the risen Lord

[chorus]




I had the opportunity to attend the Delirious concert at the Rock Church in San Diego awhile back. It was awesome and so energized. This is one of the popular songs to play. It's easy to play and sounds great on the keyboard.
