Forewords

Music is a multi-dimensional art. Music is how a painting sounds like. Instead of colours and canvas, music is shaped on elements such as melodic lines, rhythmic patterns, tonal colours and dynamics to name a few. For the musician, in order to bring music to a higher level, technical work is not the only important factor. The pianist must be aware of the touch and sound. He/she needs to understand the music itself. This is where musical awareness comes in.

This book is a collection of five keroncong songs, arranged for pianists from late intermediate level to advanced level. I have added some performers' notes at the side, and posed questions with the intention of guiding pianists towards enhancing their musical awareness, and to make a practical/aural connection. I would like to encourage the pianist to see each song as a work of art.

These songs are not arranged in the traditional style. I introduced some light jazz and lounge-style elements to these traditional songs to make it more multi-faceted, and to show pianists that they can be adventurous when it comes to music. Like many contemporary paintings, 'mix and match' works wonders. Just reach out with your senses and experiment.

Special thanks to Dr. Grace Choong Ai May [PhD. USM (Fine Arts)] for agreeing to collaborate with me on this book by designing the cover, as well as permitting me to feature some of her paintings here.

Practical and theory are not two entirely different, separate concepts. By incorporating theory with practical, the musician is able to develop a further understanding of the music, the ability to improvise or transpose certain passages to suit their style of playing, or to create their very own brand of accompaniment. - Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

Music is connected in all elements. We cannot isolate a piece to teach without involving any aural awareness, and neither can we teach theory without ‘hearing’ the theory, (e.g. we have to hear the pitch of a sharpened note when we teach the accidental - sharp ‘#’). This cohesive organisation of thoughts and actions will make your lessons invaluable and interesting to your students. With it intertwined together, the lessons becomes ‘alive’ and musically enriching. - The ART of Teaching (AoT) by Alice Chua
