So Youtube offers videos that are basically “copy me” tutorials. Does it teach you anything really? No, it teaches robotic copying, no individuality, nothing bespoke.
Musicianship in Organ Courses
Start with sound, use solfege… now your ear is developing. Your ear now informs your fingers. Play in many keys and you understand the distance between notes, transposition and more. Now add chords. Take your melody and make it into a canon and you are developing counterpoint skills. Improvise using all the skills learned. Now check out the notation. Jumble up elements of the tune and you have a structured approach to sight-reading. BAM – A Holistic Organ Course Online with Black Friday deal!
Musicianship in Pop Rock Piano Courses
Once again, use your ear first and start with sound. After-all, isn’t that why you began playing the piano? The ear now leads the piano as you add counterpoint – a bass beneath the melody, a round between the melodies, add a chord or two, change the texture and accompaniment style, embellish the melody, improvise. Then if you fancy it, follow notation and jumble up the elements to make a logical approach to sight-reading.
Musicianship in Pop Vocal Courses
Did you know that Beyonce, Mariah and Whitney didn’t just ‘make up’ those runs? They’re not really improvised. There’s a whole range of embellishments and frequently the Pentatonic Scale is part of it. Take the famous five notes, learn each embellishment and it’s name, apply it to Katy Perry’s Roar or Avicii’s Hey Brother, then follow a Famous Five Workout. Now, take your favourite song and add your own licks and runs. Stylise and make pop songs your own.
