About This Class

Learn Piano Level 8 - Learn to use Augmented Chords Substitution into Away In A Manger & Whole Tone Scales

Sometimes when we listen to musicians playing a musical arrangement, we here a metallic sound that makes the piece of music mesmerizing. They are sounds that we hear when we play the whole tone scales.

Whole Tone Scales have tones that are one whole step apart. They sound ethereal.

Here's the Secret: Whenever there are Augmented Chords put in the music arrangement, we can readily play part of the whole tone scale into the chord. Or sometimes just sharpening the 5th tone of the chord in place of the dominant 7 chord, we the raised 5th tone gives the piece of music an ethereal sound. Augmented Chord with the sharp 5 tone is actually an altered dominant chord substitution.

Learn how to put in Augmented Chords into your music arrangement!

Rosa's Music Online School

Many people at church have asked Rosa 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 music 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.
