Remember Your Creator: Piano Lesson Book 3
About Book 3
Book Three is designed with the purpose of developing musicianship in students, namely in the area of keyboard harmony and improvisation. Keyboard harmony is a great skill to have and the student is encouraged to listen to the chords they read and play, and subsequently recreating them when required by the blanks deliberately given in the score. Writing the chords after doing so will allow greater impression and therefore better recognition of the chords both visually and aurally. It is essential as a musician to be able to mentally hear what you read, and to write what you hear. Many of the songs in this book are story songs. The melodies and lyrics complement each other and there is something to learn from seeing how this is done in order to develop the skill of composition. Being able to play the piano and sing with the words is a lot of fun, and the student should be encouraged to put that into practice.
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.
