To be honest, I haven't done any real piano practice for 20 years.
All pop songs are the same.
All church songs are the same.
Most choir songs are wanna-be church songs or pop songs.
3 minutes work is enough to have most songs down.
But not this beautiful and difficult choir piece. John Rutter, where is the lazy pianist version? Where are the chords?
There is no way of getting around it, this piece requires the pianist to read the music. All twelve pages of it. Every bar is slightly different and it moves through 3 keys - only one of which is sensible.
I'm normally a follow the vibe kind of player. But the vibe of this piece is note perfect.
I've worked on this song for a couple of hours so far and still can only play it at half pace.
Okay Simone. Arm yourself with perseverance. This can be done. It can.
Do you play piano? I'll pay you $100 to play it for me.
