There are different ways to compose a piece. One common method is to use a theme. The theme can be a repetitive musical phrase or a series of chord progression.
The following video shows you two great classical repertoire - Toccata and Fugue in D minor by JS Bach and In The Hall of the Mountain King by Edward Grieg. You have mostly likely heard of these music during the fall season, specially during Halloween time. These two music are frequently featured in horror and suspense films as well.
So, what makes these two music stand out from the rest of classical music? How do you create spectacular piano music like these?
Watch the video now - in the video, I showed you how to use minor key to make up your own song just like these famous classical repertoire. More importantly, you will learn how to improvise using basic theme.
In addition, I demonstrated how to analyze music as it is an important step to master piano playing and music composition.
