      Tanz (Germany)

      For many decades, I have used this simple German “dance” as an introduction to hand independence. The melody is played in the left hand while the right hand plays simple quarter note arpeggios from the root. But there is more here than a simple hand separation exercise. There are a bunch of lessons to be learned from this simple tune. (1) Hand independence; (2) The concept of separating harmony from melody – a close harmony is fine but separating harmony from melody in physical distance opens up your instrument; (3) Thinking chord progressions not just for this tune but for all tunes is, in my view, the best way to process and retain tunes and create arrangements; (4) The concept of harmonizing a scale. The melody is mostly scales. From a scale, we can select the most likely chord and the alternate chords that can be played with each melody note. (5) Dissonance is good! The hand separation produces some dissonances that are resolved. Bottom line: this little piece offers a great introduction to hand independence but teaches us more!
