Snow on Pines

When Winter is here we wish for Summer. When Summer is upon us... well, you get the idea. In this lesson we use chords in the Key of F Major along with a chord chart to create a small ABA form.

The upper register of the piano is really used here to create a nice delicate atmosphere. An aural canvas if you will. Open position chords are used along with a simple melody. We use the principles of repetition and contrast and voila.. a new lesson for you!
