Course Description

Using the classic holiday song, “Let It Snow,” you’ll learn how to create a full arrangement of a lead sheet using a step-by-step process. You’ll learn each section of the song using a layering approach so you can see how to start with a very simple arrangement and add complexity with each additional layer.

This lesson will teach you “Let It Snow” and I’ll be teaching this lesson directly from a lead sheet.
I will go over the 3 steps for you to be able to play effectively from a lead sheet. The first thing we
will go over is how to play the melody of a song using “Let It Snow” as an example. This song will be used as a vehicle for learning how to create an arrangement from our lead sheets. After learning the melody you will learn the roots in the left hand and I will show you how to use them in different ways. Finally we will go over how to fill in all the notes in between the root and the melody.

This will be a step by step lesson and you will be able to build layer upon layer into your arrangement. This lesson is essential for anyone wanting to create their own arrangements from a fake book.
