Struggle with Many Pianists:  They do not know how to coordinate Left Hand & Right Hand.
Rosa’s Method for EASY Effortless LH & RH Coordination:
1.  Do not Memorize Notes
2.  Learn to think in Chords
3.  Think in Left Hand & Right Hand Movement
4.  Feel the Beat
5.  One Hand Playing at a TIME.

The Piano Course “Left Hand Piano Technique: 5 Open 10th Feel Techniques in C Key” trains all pianists to learn to play the Open 10th technique & 5 Variations into the song “Be Still & Know that I am God” in Key of C.
Day by day piano lessons are provided for 30 days so that you can focus on your practice everyday with a 1 to 2 minute video demonstration. 
In the next month, You will Learn the following 5 Open 10th Feel Techniques & Variations: 
1. Piano Technique 1: Quiet Open 10th                                                 
2. Piano  Technique 2: Open 10th Walk Down                                                 
3. Piano  Technique 3:  Open Harmonic 10th Walk Up                                                 
4. Piano  Technique 4:  Walk Up Bass                                                 
5. Piano  Technique 5:  Open Harmonic 10th Run for Ending 
If you apply only one Open 10th technique throughout the song, you will find your playing very monotonous.  So this course teaches you how to put in different variations of the Open 10th Feel into a song to spice up your playing.  Variety and Creativity are built into these lessons so that you can turn a “plain” song to dance in a variety of ways. 
Videos and Lectures will teach you how to apply the Open 10th variations:   
• For a one beat note, Quiet Open 10th fits perfectly.
•For a two beat note, use the Open 10th Walk Down
• When the melody tone is a 10th above the chord tones, use the Harmonic Open 10th Walk Up
•At the end of the song, use the Open 10th Harmonic Run.
I show you a step by step process to play the song in Key of C EFFORTLESSLY. You just need to learn the piano tip to know what to concentrate so that you can practice very quickly and at ease that will even amaze yourself. 
The piano videos are there to help you experience the ‘quickness’ of the hands, ie. to play the Open 10th with ease and in a flowing manner. Once you understand the music theory and how to train your finger muscle memory in my guided piano lessons, you will ‘drift into the flow’ of piano playing that sounds professional in a very quick time. 
Have Fun!

Many people at church have asked her to teach them to play piano. As a result of her passion in playing piano, she started developing piano courses initially for church pianists online since 2008. The piano courses are very unique because she was finally willing to share her Unique Piano Method: Color Chord Improvisation Method known as CCI. The CCI method works for all types of music: Gospel, Pop and Standards. 
This Piano Method is easy, fun and creative that you learn to play piano not only from music score sheets, but to play chords from fake books and eventually to play by ear. Students all over the world have requested for courses to teach them play standards and popular songs. As a result she developed 3 Great Reharmonization Method courses for them to play from fake books and play by ear. The Dreamy Piano Techniques courses, especially the one on Autumn Leaves is her students favorite.
