Did you ever want to know how to play piano and sing at the same time? If so, Dan teaches you exactly that in part two of Rhythm Piano. Wait! What is rhythm piano? Rhythm piano is how you play the piano when you are singing a song. Rhythm piano is a great method for beginners as well as piano players who want an introduction to improvisation. It is also great for musicians who play other instruments and would like a good introduction to piano.
Rhythm piano deals with how to play chords using different patterns to accompany songs. The melody is not played but sung with your own voice! Though this method does not teach you note reading, it uses sound music theory concepts that you would learn in any college level music theory course. Whenever you start learning how to read music, you will have a good foundation. It is recommended that you can locate and name the keys of the piano keyboard, and have a basic understanding of chords before going through this DVD.
In this DVD, Dan demonstrates rhythm piano techniques using familiar songs. Dan performs songs like "Lean on Me", "Amazing Grace", "Sloop John B", "Happy Birthday", "Jingle Bells" and more! You will be learning how to play songs using the 3 primary chords as well as other chord devices like dominant 7th chords and relative minors. Dan will also walk you through how to play these chords using rhythmic patterns like alternating bass and walk-ups.
