Along with your piano lessons in NYC, we gave you “Five Great Piano Piano Songs to Play at a Party” – a laundry list of tunes to bust out with an audience around. You have the skills; why not show them off? Well, here’s another four that HeyKiki thinks you should learn. And believe us, they’re definitely crowd-pleasers:
1. Elton John – Tiny Dancer: “Blue jean baby; L.A. lady” are the lines that start off this classic by the famous pianist-turned-singer. The old-fashioned piano rhythm is a signature of John’s style and “Tiny Dancer” is a testimony to that.
2. Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’: Everything about this song screams out “buzz ballad.” The 80s tune will have every member of the audience belting out the words; you’ll be surprised to see a piano do that.
3. Lynyrd Skynyrd – Tuesday’s Gone: If you’ve ever seen any Adam Sandler movie, you’ll know this one all too well. It’s no “Sweet Home Alabama” but the quaint beat from the Southern band will have everyone swaying back and forth.
4. Eric Clapton – Layla: Eric Clapton is, by far, one of the best guitarists to ever live and “Layla” is, arguably, his most famous song. The track is split into two parts: the harrowing guitar riff of the first half and the famous blaring piano of the second. Attack the latter.
Now, rock out with your piano lessons in NYC from HeyKiki!
