Piano Runs & Fills: Play Rolling Cascading Runs for Introduction of Songs

Do you often wonder what chord progressions musicians use when they perform at the beginning of their song?

Many musicians love to play the 1625 Chord progression for the introduction of their songs. They create a dreamy atmosphere for the audience to flavor as they listen to the performance.

Many piano players are frustrated when it comes to playing runs, especially when they see that there are lots of notes going up or coming down. They will be forever counting where the notes are and how to keep up with the rhythm?

Do you know that there is a MUCH easier way to play runs?

You do not need to spend all your time counting the notes and tapping the beat to see if you are playing in the rhythm.

Here's the SECRET of this course: You are going to learn how to play 36 notes beautifully in this rolling cascading run without the need to practice for days to get your notes correct.

What you need is to learn a NEW way of thinking when you play Runs!

1. Learn to see notes in groups.

2. Learn to put the notes in triplets to create a group.

In this course, you will learn the following piano techniques:

1. Piano Technique 1: Play Triplets for each beat

2. Piano Technique 2: Play runs in Rhythm

3. Piano Technique 3: Keep the Sustain pedal on

4. Piano Technique 4: Use Color Chord Augmented +5 for the dominant chord

5. Piano Technique 5: Left hand plays the 1625 Bass line with variation

Follow my 3 Piano Tips:

Piano Tip 1: Use Triplets to create the Rolling Effect

Piano Tip 2: Do not count 36 notes but THINK in Groups

Piano Tip 3: Put the weight on the pinkie when you come down on the triplet

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.
