Description

Do you want to harmonize a song with chordal chords of diminished 7 and different color chords?

I often see students struggling and analyzing which chords to use to harmonize melody tones!  For beginners, if they can harmonize a song with Basic chords, they will be very happy. Then as you advance to intermediate and advanced playing, you would want to add in minor chords, secondary dominants, diminished and tritone chords.

I have good news for Advanced students, and even beginners can follow this course to learn my trick to create advanced 7th Chords when you harmonize melody tones.  

Here's the Secret of EFFORTLESS playing:  Use Rosa's LH & RH 4T6 Locked Hand Style to play Block Chords with Rich Sounds to all your melody tones.  

This is TOO good to be true.  I wish had shown me this when I first learned piano.

Using this Rosa's SECRET trick, a beginner sounds like a PROFESSIONAL player within minutes! 

  • Using my 4T6 handshape, you can get color tones easily
  • Use this handshape to play effortlessly
  • Create rich sounds for each melody tone in the song
  • Combine this with the LH playing one octave lower
  • Playing in this style creates a different style that can 'wow' your audience


Imagine we can play all melody tones in blocked hand style to create these rich sounding chords:

RH Block Chord style:    

C      D       E      F         G      G#      A     B       C       

C6    Fº7    C6    Abº7    C6    Bº7     C6    Dº7   C6 


**This method takes only 1 minute to learn and easy to practice!**

This is FAST TRACK learning and playing!

Rosa is the Pastor and Church Pianist for a local community church in Hong Kong for over 30 years. She graduated from University of British Columbia and received her teaching certificate specializing in Chemistry and teaching English as a second language. She taught public schools in Canada for a couple of years and then went on to receive her Master's degree in Christian Theological Ministry at Ontario Theological Seminary in Toronto. She started full time ministry with her husband in 1989 and received intensive Pastoral Counselling and Discipleship Training at Christian Disciples Church. They were ordained to become church ministers as Pastors in 1996 in a local church in Tsuen Wan and have been ministering to this same congregation for almost 20 years now.

Over the years, she has gone on church missions to Mongolia, Sydney, Nepal, India and expedition trips to the Holy Lands: Israel, Greece and Turkey. Wherever she went, she found herself taking up the music ministry and became the church pianist for that church.

Many people at church have asked her to teach them to play piano. As a result of her passion in playing piano, she started developing piano courses initially for church pianists online since 2008. The piano courses are very unique because she was finally willing to share her Unique Piano Method: Color Chord Improvisation Method known as CCI. The CCI method works for all types of music: Gospel, Pop and Standards.

This Piano Method is easy, fun and creative that you learn to play piano not only from music score sheets, but to play chords from fake books and eventually to play by ear. Students all over the world have requested for courses to teach them play standards and popular songs. As a result she developed 3 Great Reharmonization Method courses for them to play from fake books and play by ear. The Dreamy Piano Techniques courses, especially the one on Autumn Leaves is her students favorite. She has a piano website at Learn Piano With Rosa where she continues to offer new courses to her students. She also holds piano workshops for her local students and train church pianists.

With her education and expertise in teaching, her students love her piano courses and found her piano lessons extremely easy and fun to play piano. They are highly motivated to play piano and playing piano had never been more fun and satisfying for them. You can read their testimonies on her website.

She is now an instructor at Udemy. Come and join her hundreds of students to play piano in a fun and creative way.
