 2-5 Power Chords are found in many standards and popular movie themes.  They make rich full sounds that will captivate your audience wanting more.

In this song "All I Ask Of You", I show you how to take a tune from its basic harmony  ( I  IV  V7 )  to advanced sophisticated chords.  

"All I Ask Of You" is a song written by Andrew Lloyd Webber in the musical version of 'The Phantom of the Opera." Andrew Lloyd Webber achieved popular success in musical theatre and has been referred to as 'the most commercially successful composer in history. 

Here's the Secret to this Song:  You will discover that many color tones are embedded in the melodic lines.  Once you discover how to make use of the 3 piano tips in this song, you will start playing this song effortlessly in the flow.  So by playing just the basic chords, you hear all these colorful sound even before you dress up the music with 2-5 Power Chords.

We are going to follow a Play by Ear Procedure:

First, we need to establish a harmonic foundation to the song with basic chords so that you understand how complex chords come into play.   You are going to improvise the song with basic chord progression by EAR.

I put in a section on Easy Improvisation.  I show you different ways to improvise around the chord progressions so that you learn "tone motion voice leading".  Even when you don't play the actual melody of the song, you can hear the song in the background when you play the harmonic chord progressions. This is a good ear training program to help you play many standard and pop songs by EAR.

Second, Learn 2-5 Powr Chord Rules & Chord Substitutions to "All I Ask of You Improvisation". 

In this song, I teach you how to use 2-5 Power chords to reharmonize the song from the harmonic basic chord foundation.  

  • Learn how an easy chord progression of 1645 can be easily changed to many of the 2-5 standards chord progressions. 
  •  Learn how to create half-step chromatic movement to create beautiful sounding basslines.  

In the full arrangement, you will be playing these chords: 

  •  CM9
  • FM9
  • G9
  • Dm9
  • Fm7
  • Bb7b9
  • A7b9
  • C#dim7
  • Am7
  • D7b9
  • C/G
  • Dm7/G
  • G7.

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.
