Have fun practicing your note reading skills with this simple melody exercise (level 4)!

With the chords exercise (level 6) you’ll get familiar with the chord structure of this song. This exercise is a great one to warm up your chord reading skills before challenging yourself with the higher level versions. The more comfortable you are with chord playing, the more flexible your reading skills become so that you can play other songs just by reading the chord chart!

The rotating wrist movement in the right hand with steady left-hand support in the band exercise (level 7) will get you to feel the vibe of this beautiful song.

The accompaniment exercise (level 10) captures the full arrangement of the solo piano that you hear in the soundtrack of this beautiful piano-centric song. It will get you feeling like you are in full control of the accompaniment with the vocal.

This vocals in this song are full of really beautiful nuances! I recommend you listen to it bit by bit and imitate the timing, the dynamics and the sound of the singer. It’s also great for practicing your airflow. The song has long phrases, so try to be economical on how much air you use. Watch out for consonants that don’t have a clear pitch, like H, S, and F. They really empty your lungs fast! Also, pay attention to when the singer takes a breath.
