G Major - A MAjor

Titanic: My Heart Will Go On

This arrangement of “My Heart Will Go On” is for an intermediate-advanced level pianist. It serves as an exercise in the Key of G major for dynamic control of the melody with broken chords in the right hand accompanied by single chord notes in the left hand. The right-hand melody in octaves with some block chords requires coordination with left hand ascending arpeggios in the last section. Primary chords G C and D are emphasized with some secondary chords Em Bm and Am.

Water is Wide
(Key of A Major)

The water is wide, I cannot get o’er; And neither have I wings to fly; Give me a boat That can carry two, And both shall row, my love and I.

 

Dedicated to my husband Brereton W. Bissell 1937 - 2022
