'Greensleeves' Creative Piano Lessons Course
What you'll learn
- You will be able to play a two-handed arrangement of Greensleeves to your own level, and understand more about how music is made at the keyboard.
- Students will need a piano/keyboard, some application and patience - nothing more!
- You should like 'Greensleeves' - no point putting the effort in if you don't!
A stand-alone Musicarta project for all levels designed to get a complete performance of this beautiful tune into your repertoire efficiently and easily - and teach a raft of 'practical music theory' along the way.
For all levels. You can learn to play just the simplest two-handed arrangement or develop your arrangement as far as you can take it with chord inversion, syncopation, broken chord accompaniments, counter-melody harmonization - all techniques you can use in all your playing going forward.
For readers and non-readers alike. Ample video and virtual piano demonstrations mean not reading music is not a problem - while offering a painless and effective way to get into or back into reading for both novices and lapsed pianists coming back to the instrument.
Who this course is for:
- Pupils of all ages and stages who would like to create their own arrangement of this timeless, beautiful tune and learn some creative piano music theory along the way.
Bob Chappell (aka Mister Musicarta) has been "messing round with chords" since he got turfed off the school piano for playing four-handed boogie with a pal. A lifetime musician, playing for functions and ballet class and every modern style under the sun, Bob now teaches and plays in Cape Town, South Africa.
Years of teaching a creative curriculum called 'composing at the keyboard' have been honed down to what works best to free that musician within. Visit the Musicarta website and Mister Musicarta YouTube channel (links below) to sample my approach.
Looking forward to seeing you on the courses!
