I had no idea this piece would be so much fun when I first saw it in my piano book! Now, I'm absolutely in love with it and can't stop playing it!
Today I did the Hokey-Pokey! Sheet music is included below if you want to follow along or try it yourself - it's a very fun piece! I had loads of fun learning it on the piano; I just hope I didn't annoy my neighbors too much^^
The Elmer Bernstein Collection (piano book) just arrived and the first piece I'm attempting is his famous and fabulous "The Great Escape March." I still have a long way to go, but practicing it is a lot of fun:
Just me and my two other musical selves playing around with some sample pages from the soon-to-be-released Battlestar Galactica Piano Book. I don't think I'll ever get tired of making videos like this....
I originally hoped to record the whole piece, but unfortunately my keyboard skills weren't up to the task. Instead I just recorded the main melody. And this video marks the first appearance of my new digital drum machine. I'm still not sure if it was a waste of money or not, but it sure is fun to hit:
Here's my take on Henry Mancini's classic Pink Panther theme. This was definitely the most fun I've ever had playing music and making videos. Special thanks to Sydney Street's Mark Wash for lending me his bongos^^
I can't get this song out of my head!
Originally a solo guitar piece, I wouldn't be surprised of Joe Satriani wrote this on piano. I found it easier to play on piano despite still being a beginner. The guitar part has some big stretched for the right hand. Ooops, I messed the guitar part up a little - I recorded the piano part first and that took quite a few takes, so by the time I sat down to record the guitar part I couldn't be bothered with multiple takes...
