Coffin Dance - let's play this!
📚 A fabulous brand new video and Funsheet for you all this week. So whether you are an intermediate or advanced pianist, we have something for you all.
Ⓜ️ 🎹 This song which is now a meme, (yes, we are learning memes ) has been asked for by so many of our piano students. It's 'Coffin Dance' otherwise known as 'Astronomia' by Tony Igy.
⚰️ Why are we learning this? Well dear readers, it helps us to learn new rhythms and is great as it uses a lot of repetition. It's also nice and quick to pick up! It's very similar to 'Megalovania' which we learnt a few months ago. Check out our YouTube channel for this.
🎵 Focus on the melody for this week and for next week, we'll look at how to piece the chords with the melody, with the correct rhythm applied.
🖐🏽 🎹 Play the melody first with the right hand and then have a go at following the chords. We've made it easy by naming them for you this time. In the following weeks, we'll learn to read them without the note names. We like a challenge!
🤳 Watch our Coffin Dance vid - Lucy will play the song along with you so you have one of our fab Fun-Keys teachers to practise with. It always helps to play along with the vid. Drop her a like in the comments section too and let us know that you'd like to see for future content.
🧑🎤 We are always on it and will make the vids you want so you too can play piano and become musicians. Join us every week on Zoom world and check out our weekly YouTube vids.
Have a great week all
