About This Class

Play Piano 3:  Play Old Standards By Ear Using Chord Progression!  Improvise & Put 2-5 Power Chords to Some Enchanted Evening.  WORKBOOK provided to do fun exercises

I have developed this Amazing 2-5 Power Chord Reharmonization Method to help you gain success to playing your favorite standards.  

__________________________

2-5 Power Chords are found in many standards and popular movie themes.  They make rich full sounds that will captivate your audience wanting more.

In this song "Some Enchanted Evening", I show you how to take a tune from its basic harmony  ( I  IV  V7 )  to advanced sophisticated chords.  

"Some Enchanted Evening"is a show tune from the 1949 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific.

First, we need to establish a harmonic foundation to the song with basic chords so that you understand how complex chords come into play.  

I also put in a section on Easy Improvisation.  I show you different ways to improvise around the chord progressions so that you learn "tone motion voice leading".  Even when you don't play the actual melody of the song, you can hear the song in the background when you play the harmonic chord progressions. This is a good ear training program to help you play many standard and pop songs by EAR.

Learn 2-5 Powr Chord Rules & Chord Substitutions to "Some Enchanted Evening Improvisation".  

In this song, I teach you how to use 2-5 Power chords to reharmonize the song from the harmonic basic chord foundation.

In the full arrangement, you will be playing these chords: 

  • C6, 
  • C7,
  • Dm7,
  • D7, 
  • G7b9, 
  • Em7, 
  • C+, 
  • F6, 
  • Em7b5, 
  • Bm7b5,
  • A7, 
  • A7b9, 
  • Bb7, 
  • D11

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.
