Piano Runs & Fills 4: C6 Dreamy Rolling Waves & Waterfall for Songs Ending

Do you want your piano playing to sound more like a professional?

Many beginners just end their song in a boring way. When they get to the end of the song, they just play a long tone in the empty measure. They do not know what to do with the long measure. Often times, the song sounds very abrupt when they come to an ending.

How would you like to create a dreamy ending so that your audience can sit back to flavor the ending of your performance?

Here's the Secret: One way to create a dreamy ending is create contrasting rolling and dancing sounds at the end of the song. You want your audience to sit back to flavor your performance right to the end. You are going to take them up to a climax with the rolling waves going up. And just as when they think you are ending the song, you are going to start dancing with your fingers creating a waterfall dance coming down.


In this course, I will show you 2 Big piano techniques on Runs:

1. Rolling Waves going up

2. Dancing Waterfall coming down.

3. C6 Chord - 4 Tone Chord

4. Use C6 Inversion - E G B D with thumb on E

5. Learn my 4T6 Magic Handshape for Fingers Rolling

6. Use Left Hand Smart Fingering: L5 L3 L2

7. Coordinating Both Hand by Thinking Simply: L R L R L R

8. C6 Dancing Waterfall Run

9. Train Fingers to dance on staggered notes down 3 octaves

10. Creatively add Extension to Endings

11. Combine 2 techniques: C6 Rolling Waves + C6 Waterfall Run

12. Combine 3 techniques: C6 Rolling Waves + Chromatic Chord Movement + C6 Waterfall Run

Come on in and enroll in this course!

Let's have some fun together,

Rosa

Instructor Biography

Rosa Suen, 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.
