A progressive build-up to guarantee progress

Every lesson in the build-up to the Pyramids Variations Concert Performance adds a little to what went directly before – there are no big surprises and no yawning gaps. The result is that you can build up to an impressive performance much faster than you could with conventional teaching.

Here’s the build-up so far…

In Lesson One of the Pyramids Variations, you learn how to use the Basic Music-making Position to play chords at the keyboard, and how to use chord symbols to find the eight chords in the Pyramids chord sequence. Here’s what your Lesson One performance sounds like:

In Lesson Two, a simple left-hand-over technique adds an introduction and an ending, making this pretty chord study:

'No-one gets left behind!'

Now look how the Pyramids Variations makes sure you can find your easy music chords at the keyboard. This diagram shows the new feature in the Lesson Two performance – the ‘left-hand-over pattern’.

The audio file on the module webpage shows you exactly how the music is supposed to sound.

In the table underneath the illustration, you see the reference number of the accompanying MIDI file. When you play it on the free MidiPiano (Windows OS) virtual keyboard app (included in the download), you will see a finger-by-finger performance you can slow down as much as you like - and set-to repeat!

There's no chance you won't 'get it'!

MIDI support and MidiPiano

The other file number in the table under the illustration – Pyramids_L2_A4 – is the MIDI file for the example.

All the musical examples in the Musicarta Pyramids Variations pdf have MIDI files which you can play on MidiPiano, the Windows ‘virtual keyboard’ included in the Pyramids Variations digital download.

Here’s a video of MidiPiano – with it’s intuitive ‘Piano Roll View’ pane working – playing the MIDI file which demonstrates these ‘left-hand-over’ patterns. See if you can spot four of them.
