My Piano Repertoire

Carlos’ Piano Repertoire

Songs From Movies

I love to play songs from movies… including musicals that became movies. And also songs from Animated Movies.

Here are a list of some of my favorites: If I Loved You (Carousel), Love Theme (Sophie’s Choice), Cavatina (The Deer Hunter), A Part Of Your World (The Little Mermaid), Love Theme (Beauty and the Beast), A Whole New World (Alladiin), Edelweiss (The Sound of Music), Theme from Ragtime, The Entertainer (The Sting).

The New C2 Yamaha Grand

. . . .

Standards, Etc…

Now that I have a wonderful sounding grand piano to practice on… one that has been tuned twice since I got it… I absolutely have no excuse…

I need to practice, practice, practice!

And I’ve seriously been looking at my current repertoire of songs I know. Here is the current list that I completely forgot I had here on my site…

Piano Repertoire

1. I need to play these songs in the proper keys they were written in.

2. I need to practice my scales and chord progressions.

3. I need to practice in all 12 keys

4. I need to practice in major and minor keys, including modes (dorian, lydian, mixolydian, phrygian, etc.)

5. I need to practice on some classical stuff, including ragtime.

And I need to update my current list. There are more songs that I know, and my goal is to have a working repertoire of 200 plus songs.

Did I say I needed to practice? One always needs to… there’ll be more time to improvise long pieces later. I really need to practice on Standards and Classical, mainly.
