Pattern Piano and Keyboard - Section 5
"Playing the same song using MANY DIFFERENT Rhythmic Patterns"
In this Video:
- We'll play the same song again. This time however, we'll use many different Rhythmic Patterns together to create a fantastic arrangement by ear!
Here's where the piano lessons get exciting!
In the above example, I'll show you what it sounds like when you combine many different Rhythmic Patterns together to create a rich arrangement of the same song on the piano. Again, you will find that the voice is taking the melody, so that the hands can concentrate on playing full, rich patterns AROUND the melody.
In this example, I use many different Rhythmic Patterns on the piano, some advanced, some simple. The reason that this arrangement sounds rich and full is that I've combined all these different patterns together to create a unique sound. Learning to combine musical Rhythmic Patterns on the piano to play any song by ear is the #1 reason why this piano lessons course is so effective.

If I was simply teaching piano lessons that would teach music students to mimic the patterns that I play, my students would quickly get bored. However, one of the strengths of this course is that I've taken extra time to teach the skill of combining these musical patterns in an infinite variety of ways. Because of this, the piano student is able to develop their own creativity and style on the piano. This is a complete mindblower for most people! Piano lessons and creativity? Down through the years this combination has been lacking. Usually the drill is that the student must learn to play exactly what's written on the page and nothing else (or else they might risk getting smacked on the knuckles with a ruler - yikes!).
On a personal note, I was very fortunate to grow up under piano teachers who taught me to read music as well as to be creative on the keyboard.
I owe my teaching career to them. Thanks Mona, Carol, Ron. If the world were full of teachers like these we'd see all whole lot more creative musicians on the piano. To encourage piano students to be creative and get lifelong satisfaction on the keyboard has become one of my missions in life.
Here's an amazing stat - this piano lessons course has been the number one selling piano lesson course on the Internet for over a decade. We have over 100,000 students worldwide who have dug into the Rhythmic Patterns technique, learning to play any song by ear. As the author, I'm very humbled and yet very grateful to be a part of this process.
Whether you're brand new to the piano or coming back after way too many years, you'll find this is a very satisfying and exciting way to learn to play the piano. Here's more text information on this piano lessons subject.
