Drawing Jedediah Salt-Mountain time-lapse, December 2017.
Jedediah is some friend’s first child and just for fun I thought I would do a doodle on his welcome him into the world amid his mum and dad’s family and friends. It was lovely drawing the soft features of a new born baby in this simple pencil portrait for Jedediah’s parents.

Sharon Bill’s ABRSM Music Theory Grades 1, 2 and 3 and Piano YouTube Lessons in 4K
I can vouch for the teaching as when we homeschooled our children I did ABRSM Grades 1, 2 and 3 and I achieved 100% in grades 1 and 2 and a distinction in grade 3 when I took the music theory examination. Below is the introduction video to the ABRSM Grade 1 YouTube playlist. The introduction covers Sharon’s outline to her course of Study right through to Grade 5.
For each of the series there is a FREE DOWNLOAD PDF guide from Sharon’s website in A4 and US Letter sizes that she refers to in each of the videos. Sharon has used these for over 25 years with all of her private music tuition pupils.
Here’s a great beginners piano lesson YouTube playlist from Sharon Bill filmed in 4K covering the basics of all the major scales. Sharon shows the basic construction of the major scale and then does each particular scale C major, D Major G major all the way through into the flat major scales too.
Sharon shows hands separately, hands together in similar motion and also in contrary motion over two octaves. She also gives tips on how to use the best fingering method with practical tips on posture. I also demonstrate how to give the scale more rhythmic direction and music fluidity.
Here is Sharon Bill’s 8 video playlist explaining Scales on the Piano. The series covers ‘Semitones and Tones easily explained and demonstrated’, ‘The Construction of the Major Scale: A Beginners Music Theory Lesson’, ‘The Natural Minor Scale: A Beginners Music Theory Lesson’, ‘The Harmonic Minor Scale: A Beginners Music Theory Lesson’, ‘The Melodic Minor Scale: A Beginners Music Theory Lesson’, ‘Modes A Beginners Music Theory Guide to the Modal Scale Systems’, ‘Scales – Why Bother? All you need to know about playing scales’ and finally ‘Circle of Fifths: Everything a Musician Needs to Know’.
All in all the above 8 videos in the playlist offer a wealth of music theory and practical playing knowledge. Enjoy and share.
