By the end of the course you will have a great variety of different traditional tune types as well knowledge on how to accompany the tunes when playing with others. The course has 10 lessons, broken into 3 to 4 tutorials each, where tunes are taught phrase by phrase.
Combining melodic tune playing and accompaniment, the primary aim of this course is to introduce you to a variety of different traditional tune types as well as teaching how to accompany the tunes taught when playing with others. This course develops tune repertoire, ornamentation and left hand accompaniment for melody playing. As the piano has the versatility to be both a melodic and accompaniment instrument, the second focus of the course is to develop your understanding of chord progressions and sequences, structure and formation.
