Playing with Chords

Mr. Peter Groch

July 12-15, 6:00-7:00PM 

$120 for four sessions

 

In this four-day workshop, students will develop the skills to harmonize a melody by ear, play popular tunes from lead sheets, and create piano arrangements of their favorite songs. By analyzing the basic patterns and forms found in popular music, students will uncover some of the mystery behind the music heard on the radio. At the end of the course, each student will create an arrangement of a song of their choice—and be equipped with the skills to play many more!

 

Ideal for students ages 11-15. Participation will require a basic understanding of triads.
