KEYBOARD ACCOMPANIMENT (KA) BASICS
KEYBOARD ACCOMPANIMENT DEFINED:
the ability to anticipate harmonic changes,
choose appropriate chords and draw from a repertoire of chord-based techniques to provide an accompaniment.
KA BEGINNERS: even if your sight-reading and technical skills are advanced,
unless creating accompaniments for melodies has been a part of your musical development, it is recommended
that you begin with PREPARATORY. Hearing and anticipating chord changes is another area of the brain and, like
most new skills, it requires step-by-step, hands-on training from the beginning.
KA BASICS METHODOLOGY: To give an extensive repertoire of accompaniment styles,
rhythms, embellishments, patterns and progressions that can be mixed/matched to suit the songs and folksongs in the KA BASICS
series and you will have the foundation to provide your own accompaniment for any song/melody that you would
like to play.
