In this Master Class Course,  we are going to learn how to put in 3 different techniques into one song.

If you can dress up the song in Have Thine Own Way, you will be able to apply the same piano principles to your favorite songs.

Struggles with many pianists:  They are stuck and do not know how to dress up a song.  How can we make a ‘slow’ going song and turn it into something that is not boring and dynamic?

Here's the Secret:

  • When the music is very plain, we can use a variety of piano techniques to dress up the song.
  • Look at the song and take note of the note values.
  • In this song, the melody tones are usually 1 beat or 3 beats.
  • Ask yourself: when the 3 beat melody tones are one after another, what we can do to break up the monotony?  In such cases, an quiet Open 10th technique sounds really good.
  • Look for patterns in the song.
  • The pattern in this song is very repetitive.  So we need to find places to create as much drama as possible.
  • Find as many places as possible to make artistic sounds.

You are gong to learn how to apply 3 different Techniques to this plain 9/4 Song:

  1. Quiet Open 10###sup/sup###
  2. Rolling Waves in 3 Beats
  3. Raindrop Filler

Piano Tip:  Use Contrary motion to get artistic sound

In this Master Class Course, you are going to how to coordinate both your Left Hand & Right Hand easily.

  1. Play Open 10th Ballad in the flow
  2. Learn how to Rock your LH fingers 
  3. Anchor you 3rd finger on the 5th tone
  4. Stretch out your thumb to the 10th tone open sound
  5. Coordinate both LH and RH when playing quarter notes
  6. Coordinate both LH and RH when playing whole notes.
  7. Play Beautiful Run  in the flow in 3 beats
  8. Learn how to let your fingers flow without counting mechanically
  9. Put both of your hands in chord positions
  10. Learn how to move your LH and RH smoothly
  11. Alternate LH & RH when playing the chords
  12. Coordinate both LH and RH smoothly in the long notes
  13. Play Beautiful Raindrop fillers  in the flow in 3 beats
  14. Learn how to let your fingers flow without counting mechanically
  15. Put both of your hands in chord positions
  16. Learn how to move your RH fingers moving up and down
  17. Know how to play the chord tones in LH
  18. Coordinate both LH and RH smoothly as you create these dancing tones

Learn my Fun Practising Method:

1.  Practice one hand at a time.

2.  Practice with Score sheet so that you know how to fill in the runs.

3. Practice with using Chords + Rhythm notations.

4. Practice with only Chords.

5. Finally practice playing by Ear.

Best Seller Music Teacher, 35 Years Pianist, 25,00+ students

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.
