Struggle with Many Pianists:  They do not know how to coordinate Left Hand & Right Hand.

Rosa's Method for EASY Effortless LH & RH Coordination:

1.  Do not Memorize Notes

2.  Learn to think in Chords

3.  Think in Left Hand & Right Hand Movement

4.  Feel the Beat

5.  One Hand Playing at a TIME.


The Piano Course "Left Hand Piano Technique: 5 Open 10th Feel Techniques in C Key" trains all pianists to learn to play the Open 10th technique & 5 Variations into the song "Be Still & Know that I am God" in Key of C.
 

Day by day piano lessons are provided for 30 days so that you can focus on your practice everyday with a 1 to 2 minute video demonstration. 

 

In the next month, You will Learn the following 5 Open 10th Feel Techniques & Variations: 

                                               

1. Piano Technique 1: Quiet Open 10th                                                 

2. Piano  Technique 2: Open 10th Walk Down                                                 

3. Piano  Technique 3:  Open Harmonic 10th Walk Up                                                 

4. Piano  Technique 4:  Walk Up Bass                                                 

5. Piano  Technique 5:  Open Harmonic 10th Run for Ending 

                                               

If you apply only one Open 10th technique throughout the song, you will find your playing very monotonous.  So this course teaches you how to put in different variations of the Open 10th Feel into a song to spice up your playing.  Variety and Creativity are built into these lessons so that you can turn a "plain" song to dance in a variety of ways. 

     

         

Videos and Lectures will teach you how to apply the Open 10th variations:   

  1. For a one beat note, Quiet Open 10th fits perfectly.

  2. For a two beat note, use the Open 10th Walk Down

  3. When the melody tone is a 10th above the chord tones, use the Harmonic Open 10th Walk Up

  4. At the end of the song, use the Open 10th Harmonic Run.

     

                                     

I show you a step by step process to play the song in Key of C EFFORTLESSLY. You just need to learn the piano tip to know what to concentrate so that you can practice very quickly and at ease that will even amaze yourself. 

     

 

The piano videos are there to help you experience the 'quickness' of the hands, ie. to play the Open 10th with ease and in a flowing manner. Once you understand the music theory and how to train your finger muscle memory in my guided piano lessons, you will 'drift into the flow' of piano playing that sounds professional in a very quick time. 

                                               

Have Fun! 

 

Take this Course and see you in class,

Go to the piano and enjoy playing this Open 10th / Hypnotic 10th.

It is from this basic Open 10th sound that we are going to develop the different variations of Open 10th.

First, you need to grasp this BASIC concept of Open 10th!

It took me 15 years of playing piano before I discovered this Open 10th.

I believe all students should learn this Open 10th from the beginning so that they can sound like a pro from the beginning and not need to wait.
