About This Course

Published 10/2015 English

Course Description

After completing any of these courses, you will be able to immediately start playing songs by Drake. These lectures do not have to be watched in sequence (ie, they can be viewed in any particular order depending on your song interest). The typical format is as follows.

  1. I will play the main loop/bridge of the song
  2. Break down of the Right Hand notes
  3. Break down of the Left Hand notes

Due to the intricacies of certain songs or for the sake of time, specific songs will be taught both hands at the same time. Annotated sheet music is available to download for each song in this course. After completing this course, you may begin to notice the chord patterns used in the production of this particular artist's songs. Pay particularly close attention to the use of Major 7ths and Minor 7ths.

Keyboard used: Motif XS (with sustain pedal)

What are the requirements?

  • You should already have a piano available. A sustain pedal will enhance your learning experience.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Play songs off of Drake's albums on piano
  • Play several different types of chords along with their inversions
  • Incorporate rich sounding chord voicing by spreading notes across the keyboard

What is the target audience?

  • This course is meant for both newbies and experienced piano players looking to play songs by Drake immediately. No prior piano playing experience is needed.
