Lead sheets have been around for decades, but are becoming very popular in churches. They consist of just a melody line and the chords. While they can be intimidating at first, pianists that practice will quickly get to the point where they prefer reading lead sheets to 4-part harmony in a hymnal.
If you are scared of lead sheets, this 1-hour course is for you. It includes a 15-page study guide with illustrations and assignments.
Here is what you will learn:
- How to convert a 4-part hymn into a lead sheet.
- Voicing tips to make your chords sound great.
- Accompanying from a lead sheet.
- Congregational accompaniment from a lead sheet.
This is an entry-level course, and it opens the door to many other advanced topics such as reharmonization, arranging, transposing, and much more.
