This piece is part of a series that materialized from my intentions to:

1. Borrow pop music chord progressions and grooves that have always influenced my arrangements and bring them to my original compositions. I wanted to practice what I preach in the 321 Challenge and see how I could change and add to ideas from others and make them my own.

2. Compose pedagogically-considerate pieces with appealing patterns for elementary and intermediate students. Here’s my first attempt on creating original work beyond my intermediate arrangement of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.
3. Write something accessible with style, hip chords that offers rich opportunities for exploring musicality.

The Details

Level: Late Intermediate

Character: Introspective and reflective of what matters most in life.

Inspiration: Lady Gaga from the soundtrack from “A Star is Born.”

Description: The opening chord progression evokes heaps of emotion. Speaking from my own personal experience, playing this piece puts me in a calm, more centered place. It could do the same for you. The left hand drum and cool groove of the middle section and the peak and final “drop” propels the piece forward to the gentle return of the tranquil opening progression.

Technical considerations: Fingering is not provided as the patterns and chords may fit under the hands differently. Play the “slip notes” or grace notes just before the beat. The first and last sections should be played with great freedom. Linger and enjoy the space of each lovely chord!
