Piano composition

Nahre Sol explains really clearly how you can go from simple to complex when composing music for the piano.

And if you liked that, she has some excellent videos discussing composition, genres and styles on her YouTube channel.

I love this, especially how she rips Listz and Horowitz around minute 4!

Arrrrgh these videos that demonstrate things in a cool way but completely fail to acknowledge the fact that there are specific terms for all these things! It's not just adding fingers, it's harmonizing with inner voices! "Upside down and backwards" is retrograde inversion! Anyhow she does a good job going through everything and putting it in context, better than most of these "let's talk about music in multiple levels of complexity" videos.

Well, you are probably not the intended audience for this video.

No I'm not, but it's also not hard to use the terminology that exists. I also appreciated how this lady emphasized that her definition of "complexity" was subjective and the labelled shots of her playing ideas on the piano.
