Folk Tunes in All the Keys with Harmonization, Transposition & Improvisation
Folk Tunes provides a delightful way to address proficiency skills with its 45 beautiful folk melodies from around the world. Students are asked to play and transpose two folk tunes and harmonize two more folk tunes in all the major keys. Melodies are single note and accompaniments are variations of the simple block chord cadence using only I, IV & V chords. At the end of the book 50 improvisation patterns are given and the student is encouraged to play through the pieces again using one or more of the patterns.
Folk Tunes is also available as a digital download on Top Music.
