"Boomerang Boogie" by Jerald M. Simon

Copyright © 2009 Music Motivation® – All Rights Reserved

I wrote “Boomerang Boogie” to help students learn left hand boogie woogie patterns.  The right hand plays several variations of the blues scale, and various 7th and 9th chords in different inversions.

Here is a video clip of me playing “Boomerang Boogie” on the Piano.

"Skippin' Along" by Jerald M. Simon

I wrote “Skippin’ Along” to present a progression of 7th chords descending in 5ths and played in root 1st, 2nd, and 3rd inversions.

Here is a video clip of me playing “Skippin’ Along” on the Piano.

"The Sidewalk Shuffle" by Jerald M. Simon

I wrote “The Sidewalk Shuffle” to help students learn three left hand shuffle patterns and the chromatic scale (the half step scale).

Here is a video clip of me playing “Sidewalk Shuffle” on the Piano.

"Summer Skies" by Jerald M. Simon

Copyright © 2009 Music Motivation® – All Rights Reserved

I wrote “Summer Skies” to teach all of the 7th chords moving up diactonically (according to the major scale) in any given key signature.  I named the song after my little girl, Summer.

Here is a video clip of me playing “Summer Skies” on the Piano.

"Railroad Ruckus" by Jerald M. Simon

Copyright © 2009 Music Motivation® – All Rights Reserved

I wrote “Railroad Ruckus” to help teach the left hand blues pattern of a perfect 5th, major 6th, minor 7th, and returning back to the major 6th interval, and the blues scales beginning on C, F, and G.

Here is a video clip of me playing “Railroad Ruckus” on the Piano.

"The Big Bad Blues" by Jerald M. Simon

Copyright © 2009 Music Motivation® – All Rights Reserved

I wrote “The Big Bad Blues” to introduce students to a blues left hand pattern, crushed notes (played simultaneously with the following note and released immediately), and the tremolo (alternating rapidly between two notes or chords).

Here is a video clip of me playing “The Big Bad Blues” on the Piano.
