Piano Runs & Fills 4: C6 Dreamy Rolling Waves & Waterfall for Songs Ending

Do you want your piano playing to sound more like a professional?

Many beginners just end their song in a boring way. When they get to the end of the song, they just play a long tone in the empty measure. They do not know what to do with the long measure. Often times, the song sounds very abrupt when they come to an ending.

How would you like to create a dreamy ending so that your audience can sit back to flavor the ending of your performance?

Here's the Secret: One way to create a dreamy ending is create contrasting rolling and dancing sounds at the end of the song. You want your audience to sit back to flavor your performance right to the end. You are going to take them up to a climax with the rolling waves going up. And just as when they think you are ending the song, you are going to start dancing with your fingers creating a waterfall dance coming down.

In this course, I will show you 2 Big piano techniques on Runs:

1. Rolling Waves going up

2. Dancing Waterfall coming down.

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.
