If you are in any way connected to music, you've most likely heard of the term piano accompaniment or accompaniment in general.
In today's blog, we will present to you 5 reasons why piano accompaniment is important not only for beginners in playing instruments but also for experienced soloists.
What is piano accompaniment?
First, we need to explain the term accompaniment. Accompaniment is a piece of music that provides rhythmic and/or harmonic support to the melody or main themes of a song or instrumental composition.
Our accompanist Marjetka says: »The piano accompaniment is the basis of the music.«
Why is piano accompaniment important?
If a soloist plays an instrument we hear a melody, but it is just a melody without any base. The piano accompaniment gives a base to the melody and creates harmony together with the instrument. This evokes feelings in the listener. It is precisely this harmony, that adds meaning to the music. That's why the piano accompaniment is so important.
»It is precisely this harmony, that adds meaning to the music.«
The advantage of playing with accompaniment, as Marjetka says, is that you get the complete performance.
Let's say you're still a beginner, you play easier things that don't tell the listener much yet. A light piece can be accompanied by piano and together, they create a beautiful, interesting performance.
The piano also adds elements that are often more difficult. Beginners mostly play easier compositions, so the piano has a very difficult accompaniment, so a beautiful performance can be created. In this case, the song has that »wow effect« for the listener. With piano accompaniment, it all sounds much grander, says Marjetka.
»With piano accompaniment, it all sounds much grander.«
A beginner is most likely not considered a musician yet, so people rarely care if he learns/plays an instrument with or without accompaniment. In the case of playing along with piano accompaniment, a beginner can already make a lot of himself. He can play with the accompaniment, and he can also perform with it.
It is important, however, that the beginner practices with accompaniment also for his development, of the perception of music. Beginner mostly only plays one tune, and as much as he understands it, he understands it. But when the accompaniment is in play, you get a completely different spectrum. At that time, many people just begin to understand how beautiful it is.
