The Musicarta Canon Project Module Ten

Mixed Accompaniment Patterns

The Musicarta Canon Project is deliberately structured to create opportunities for combining various elements together – right hand parts, left hand parts and rhythms – to create many different Canon performances, thereby demonstrating how music in general is constructed.

Module Ten offers more combinations to practice your two-handed keyboard styling on, plus the opportunity to train your ear to recognize the ‘bald patches’ that occur when a particular left hand accompaniment pattern doesn’t suit the right hand music.

The Musicarta Canon Project is now available as an e-book digital download and on CD-ROM. These skeleton Canon Project web pages are being left on the internet as an expanded Table of Contents, so you can see how much you’ll benefit from purchasing the Canon Project.

To give you the best chance of evaluating the Musicarta Canon Project, you can download the MIDI files for these free-to-view Canon Project web pages. File reference numbers are shown, where applicable, in the right hand audio player table cells.

To play your MIDI files, download MidiPiano here. Learn more about MidiPiano on the Musicarta MidiPiano page. You can also play the MIDI files as basic audio in most media players.

Pachelbel’s Canon is in the key of D major scale. Click through here for a thorough D major refresher course.

Listen to this example:

CPM_M10_05

The right hand is playing a very usable broken chord pattern, but the left and right hands are playing the same notes at the same time far too often.

The left hand-right hand combination can be improved by alternating two different accompaniment patterns. Listen to the improved version.

Musicarta makes sure that when you are shown something useful like this, you first understand why it’s useful, and then immediately get the opportunity to practice and turn your knowledge into skill.

For example, most music theory texts or sites will tell you somewhere “not to double the third”, and probably show you an example, but the Musicarta Canon Project goes on to present five more ‘bald patch’ examples, with solutions, so you’re sure to start hearing where ‘tweaking’ is needed.

You also get a plentiful amount of mixed-type accompaniment practice. That’s a lot of guided practice on an accompaniment that can support a lifetime of keyboard creativity!

The module ends with a hint of how right hand chord tones can become ‘melody’. See if you can work out what’s going on.
