Even though there are plenty of things to keep my piano teaching mind occupied in December, repertoire selection for January always seems to be in the forefront.
So, today I wanted to share with you December’s Piano Book of the Month, The PopWaltz Prophecy… a resource that explores four of the most common left-hand accompaniment figures encountered by young piano students: Alberti bass, waltz pattern, polka and broken arpeggiated chords.
But this is not your typical book of classical repertoire! Instead, the sounds of the classics are blended with the pop sounds of today, melding old with new to create a stunning soundtrack to a captivating story. Have a listen…
Never before has there been such an engaging way to explore and perfect the repeated accompaniment figures your piano students need to master. And, with these skills firmly in place, your Early Intermediate students will sight read like pros, progress through classical repertoire more quickly, add variety to their chording and improv skills, and find the freedom on the piano that comes with the ability to recognize and execute these common left-hand figures.
