Classic Songs to Practice on the Piano

I’ve been working on old classic and traditional songs on the piano.

Goal: In all keys, in various styles and arrangements. All improvised and played fresh.

The key to think about?

You can play a song hundred times and more, but focus on always improvising the song so that it’s slightly different each time.

Anyway, that is the exercise that I focus on.

Moon River

The Tennessee Waltz

Que Sera Sera

High Hopes (The Ant Song)

I’m Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover
