Remember Your Creator Book 4: Piano Christmas Book
About Book 4
This Christmas book is arranged as a continuation of Book Three. Entitled Let’s Sight-Sing and Improvise, it seeks to build awareness in the different accompaniment patterns used, as well as the different textures (such as Homophony, Monophony, and Polyphony) that occur in the arrangements. Instead of merely playing through the pieces, the pupil is encouraged to continue to harmonize where blanks are placed, thereby keeping alert to the chords and patterns used. The alertness developed will aid in the formation of inner hearing and keep the ideas of improvisation flowing. As an experienced music teacher herself, the author also hopes to raise the level of Aural Training and Assessment, and Theory Examinations, in which the pupil is expected to have acquired inner hearing and the skills of writing and creativity.
About the SERIES:
Having taught diplomas, higher and lower grades in piano and theory for over 40 years, Roxana Tang realizes that both children and adult students can really benefit from the Christian songs she had learnt through singing them as a child.
These songs are beautiful melodies written to poems. They are now arranged in such a way that piano students get a lot of practice for musicianship elements like sight-singing, exposure to the different intervals used in progressive order, examples to theoretical analyses such as auxiliary notes for melodic decorations and suspensions, filling in blanks to harmonize and improvise in preparation for examinations, as well as aural requirements like musical textures and chord recognition.
All of these and more are included in this series of books that train the serious and leisure pupil to be aware of all these concepts as they learn, sing, play and enjoy the piano. These songs, so full of educational ideas,and yet so lovely and meaningful, are indeed a treasure arranged with much love for everyone’s benefit.
