“Hello!” And welcome to BigTime® and FunTime® Piano Hits, two collections that give your students a chance to play popular arrangements made famous by a variety of contemporary performers. Hello, also, to a fresh look at chords and how chord changes create color and affect mood. Adele’s wistful “Hello,” in BigTime Hits (Level 4 and above), first tries an uplifting shift from minor to major (vi to I), then surrenders in a downward dip from dominant to subdominant (V to IV). This flux underpins the entire opening section. The brighter chorus “Hello” results from another minor-to-major change, with hopeful pauses on the dominant. Yet the minor ending tells the story. Dr. Faber brings theory to life as he performs “Hello” and demonstrates the simple, but very effective harmonic changes.
