Regular readers of this blog may not know that one of my long-term creative projects is authoring a piano method using popular American styles of music: blues, jazz and rock. The course consists of both arrangements and originals. Much of what I’ve written so far involves the blues style. The link below will take you to a PDF of an arrangement of the traditional spiritual Jericho from my method. This arrangement utilizes a simplified version of the common “boogie” LH pattern and a jazzy harmonic conclusion. Many of my students have enjoyed learning this arrangement. Feel free to learn to play or use it with your own students. If you do, I’d love your feedback!
