Irish Piano Foundations is a course aimed at the piano player who can already play the piano but who wishes to learn or improve on the primary foundations of playing and accompanying Irish music on the piano. These foundations include:
· Right hand melody – Ornamentation, Fingering, Variation and Rhythm
· Left Hand Accompaniment – Chord progression, Rhythm and Voicing
The course consists of twelve lessons featuring nine tunes with right hand melody and left hand accompaniment. Piano accompaniment is also taught for four of these tunes. Most of the tunes taught in this course are well known allowing the piano player to easily join other musicians to develop their playing even further. In each melody lesson, after teaching the melody phrase by phrase, Stephen demonstrates how to incorporate ornamentation and various other techniques taught per lesson into the tune. In the accompaniment lessons, Stephen will go through chord selection as well as rhythm, progression and voicing.
