Piano Accompaniment Tips

Here’s a quick video with a few tips on how to accompany yourself or another singer or instrumentalist on the piano.

I cannot overstate this – BE CONSISTENT in your rhythmic and harmonic patterns. Some variation is OK, but it’s your job to provide a solid foundation for the singer WITHOUT distracting the listener from their performance.

Don’t worry, you’ll have your turn in the spotlight 🙂

    SORRY BILL; YOUR VIDEO AND YOUR PLAYING ARE NOT TOGETHER; IT STICKS AND IS NOT TOGETHER; I’VE GOT A LOT OF YOUR VIDEO LESSONS AND REALLY LIKE THEM. THANKS.

    I agree that you should be consistent in your piano playing patterns. I think that if you are constantly changing the pressure you apply to the keys, for example, your playing may even become obnoxious. I also think that doing so less often makes it more of a pleasant surprise when you do.

    I’m always amazed by how a good keyboard player can take a simple chord progression and spice it up to something impressive. Thanks !
