Just wanted to share a couple of spontaneous prelude transitions that I created today for one of my hymn playing students during their lesson.
She’s wanting more help in the area of prelude transitions…and needed to see examples for transition ideas.
Hope they’re a help to other church pianists too!
Prelude Transition tips:
When creating a prelude transition consider the following:
1. The time signature you’re coming from and going to
2. The key signature you’re coming from and going to
3. Mood of approaching song
4. Add a ritard toward end of first song before the transition to allow breathing space for the player and listeners.
