How to accompany

In the first three song you accompany with one hand but from the fourth song on you play with both hands. Piano 2 is the right hand and piano 3 is the left hand. Push the play button and see how to accompany. Start with lesson 1 and a slow tempo.

At first you accompany with a single note and easy rhythms. You move step by step to two notes and then to triads. At first you play triads in root position, later on with inversions.. In the end you play 3 chord songs (I-IV-V7) with cool rhythms!

  • Vary the note lengths: play both long notes and short notes.  
  • Repeat notes.
  • Repeat the same rhythm with different note combination
  • Vary your dynamics, play both loud and quite.
  • Be brave and creative!
