How to Play from a Lead Sheet [5-2]

A lead sheet is a simplification of a piece of music that can be used by any musician.  Piano players use them by reading the melody in the right hand and realizing chords in the left hand.  Lead sheets can be a great way to play a big sound with not very much reading involved.

You’ll see in this lesson on The Alphabet Song just how easy it can be!
