It’s amazing what you can do with just a few simple chords if you know how to use them. In this three hour beginner course you'll learn how to turn basic progressions into dynamic and memorable accompaniment parts like those heard on countless pop piano hits.
The course begins with an overview of right hand chord patterns, left hand bass lines and common rhythms pulled straight from popular piano hits from the last few decades. Then it ventures into dynamics, register and other tools for emotional variety before applying everything to nearly 50 familiar song examples using a simple accompaniment formula. By the end of this course you'll have a toolbox for creating your own dynamic and varied accompaniments for songs you're writing or learning.
This course is ideal for beginner to intermediate pianists that have the basic facilities for playing right hand triads and left hand bass notes but lack the tools to convincingly arrange songs to their liking. If you have any questions about whether this course is right for you, don't hesitate to reach out!
The videos in this course are entirely visual (no sheet music) and feature falling blocks that guide you to the right notes. The videos in this course were originally created for HDpiano.com using their tools and software.
What's included? Over 90 minutes of lecture style instruction. Over an hour of hands-on practice / listening activities working with familiar songs. Plus five PDFs and spreadsheets with practice logs, sample progressions and reference material for the course.
