In this course you will learn how to play the same song 100 different ways. I encourage students to practice and learn how to play every song or exercise in every key signature and I personally show you how simple it is to start playing any song in any key signature. Once you can play the music as it is, I teach you how to arrange any song any way you want and play it in any key signature. After learning how to arrange music, I teach you how to start composing music of your own. Learn music theory, improvisation, and composition on the piano - the FUN way. I often refer to it as piano FUNdamentals (emphasis on the word FUN). It is the practical application of music theory. I will show you how to apply the music theory you learn to create music of your own by improvising, arranging, and composing music in any style you want.
This course was created for both traditional and non-traditional piano players. Every exercise is written out and you will have the PDF sheet music to follow along with. The video lessons demonstrate exactly what I am playing on the piano and how I am playing it. Simply watch the video and see the overhead shot of my hands on the piano keys. With each exercise or song I teach, I count out the rhythm for you, tell you the key signature, teach you the names of the intervals, scales, chords, etc. as I play the music and walk you through how to do exactly what you see me do in the video.
I tell students I want them to be able to read anything placed in front of them. But, I want them to be able to play music by ear, from a lead sheet, or from a fake book as well. I tell students once they learn how to play the music as written, I want them to arrange the music, improvise, and start composing music of their own. In this course we will also go over how to use software to compose music of your own and I even show you how you can start to market your music to others, if you choose to do so.
