Playing from piano music
My daughter has gotten good enough on piano that the songs she's playing now
have more complex bass cleft music - specifically chords! To have fun, and
to play together, I've been following the single notes (granted, a couple of
octaves lower), but now I have no idea what to play. Sometimes the lowest
note on the chord sounds right, sometimes the highest, sometimes neither.
I'm sure part of the answer will include having to increase my ability to
read music (which isn't all that great), but to have that fun time together
keep going will be worth it (she's nine, going on 15...).
The books are the 3A level for piano instruction, if that helps anyone know
what I'm looking at.
