Greensleeves Lesson Eight

Concert Variations



The Greensleeves Concert Variations is a two-and-a-half chorus medley performance made up of arrangement textures from the simplest to the most complex.

Here is the performance video.

The music is in your workbook PDF.

The sections explained

Here is the performance again with a commentary on the accompaniment patterns and which lessons they are taught in.

Here is the scrolling MS performance in a separate window for your convenience.

Listening is something that all musicians should aim to be good at, so listen to the Concert Variations a few times, pointing out to yourself 'the main attractions' like a tour guide, and, even if you don't immediately use them yourself, listen out out for these features in other music.

There is a page of the collected scrolling-MS videos here, to help brainstorm ideas for your own 'Greensleeves' medley variations.

Postscript

That's the end of the Musicarta Greensleeves lesson series material, but hopefully, it won't be the end of your explorations.

I hope you'll feel able to sit down and let some variations and innovations creep into your Greensleeves arrangement. That's why 'creative' is in the title of the course!

If you haven't been able to master all the versions presented in the course, don't let it stop you enjoying what you can play. The material from Lesson Six on is all material you could realistically spend months or even years getting familiar with.

But do please remember that these progressive versions are here for you to come back to whenever you feel like it.

If you'd like to take up another Musicarta course as a follow-on, I'd recommend the Pyramids Variations, if you haven't already worked through it. It explores a chord sequence in the Basic Music-making Position with a fast-track build-up to a Concert Performance then a set of variations modelling all of the creative keyboard player's skills.
