πŸ’ Imanbek — Roses Piano Sheet Music

Here is a new song in my music notes archive. It is my original interpretation of the tune for easy piano with vocal (🎀) plus accurate chords for guitar (🎸) above the music notes. The easy sheet music is created by me: the arrangement doesn’t copy any existing material in terms of music notes.

As I learned, many of you are self-taught piano players and never had a piano class. I try to cover several popular mistakes in piano-playing techniques we are prone to do.

About SAINt JHN — Roses

The remix of Roses was released on .
🎼 dared himself when writing Roses!
Roses is composed in an easy verse-chorus form. All song parts are four times and consist of four two-bar phrases. It’s comfortable to play for those with elementary skills.

This is a very gentle song. It should be played very slowly for a melancholic effect.

The song is remixed in a theoretical key G♯ Major and transcribed in its enharmonic equivalent A♭ major. The key A♭ Major has four flats (♭), I recommend playing the A♭ Major scale (link to notes) a couple of times before learning the piece. It gives you an amazing motivated and focused practice.

SAINt JHN presents us with a wide range of dynamics (sound volume levels). I didn’t add these signs to the score because it makes sight-reading harder.

This song follows the traditional model for the EDM-song form. Its rhythmic basis is sustained throughout, so the LH’s will play a rock-steady footing — this is music to dance to!


Common Practical Tips for Pianists

Before touching the piano keys, warm up your fingers and wrist with slow and soft rotating motions and light stretching. Rotate your shoulders and arms.
To begin with, practise hands separately, slowly, and in small one-two bar bits.
Study the harder passages first and do it often.
Count out loud to ensure accurate rhythm. By counting I mean the ta-ta-ta-ta, not the old ineffective one-and-two-and.
Accent strong beats and play the first bar of any phrase louder than the last bar.

Take care to arch your fingers. This is important for the health of your wrists and palms.
Slacking your fingers will overwork them and will cause strain in muscles.
Keep relaxed, flexible wrists, hands and arms when playing Roses.
A flexible wrist allows producing a warm sound.
Both hands should play smoothly (legato) if not indicated the opposite (staccato).

How to Memorize Sheet Music

From the very beginning, memorize the score. Use the sheet music as a hint and avoid looking at a paper sheet (or a monitor) as long as you can when rehearsing the music piece.

In the left hand there are only four notes (F B♭ A♭ C). The pattern is repeated throughout the song as quarter (♩) notes. For quick study, play through the entire LH part ‘blocked out. It’s an easy way to learn the notes, fingering and hand-position changes. It takes nothing to remember only four chords instead of 88 bars of a tricky accompaniment pattern.

When driving in a car or bus, repeat the score in you memory. Pretend like you are playing it on your knees.

✎ And the last, be artistic, be creative. Take correction fluid and a black pen and add or delete whatever you want in this arrangement.

How to Play SAINt JHN — Roses Sheet Music

Piano Playing Method

Accuracy in articulation are essential for playing Roses piano sheet music.
Your tone should be affectionate and atmospheric.
The articulation in this piece is tricky because it alternates between legato and staccato.

To play quietly, keep your fingers close to the keys and do some firm practice from the knuckles.

Accent every note, varying the accents each time you play. Once played lightly and up to speed, the ornament should flow naturally.

Among the hardest aspects of piano playing is controlling a lightness of attack coupled with playing at a fast speed and a warm touch. Roses is speedy. Always keep the hands relaxed, especially with repeated notes, piano keyboard is not lightweight and causes a muscle pain.

Don’t forget to bring dynamic color to your performance by quickly moving from piano to forte (π“Ÿ & 𝓕); play every new part with a different volume level:
  • The Verses are sprightly and energetic, requiring careful articulation. The RH acciaccaturas should be short and snappy, with the harmony sounding on the beat. Give the melody in the RH a beautifully graded, warm tone. Use slightly flatter fingers and imagine that you are trying to pull the sound from the keys rather than striking at them. Articulate tenderly. Guard against any urge to over-project and over-state. Think in long lines, not short phrases. Note the dynamic contrasts.
  • Save a full weight and depth of tone for the Choruses. Aim to sculpt the chorus so that it emerges as a thing of real beauty, shapely, nuanced and expressive. Think about the destination of lyrics phrases; remove the hand completely during pauses in singing. Keep the phrases as long as possible. Pedal carefully in this section.

In the bars 25, 27 play the right hand as soft as you play the left hand because the melody here on the upper stave is missing, it is an accompanying part.

Right Hand

Start learning with the RH.
Listen to the actual track Roses as you begin to learn the transcription. Clap the hands to memorize the rhythm. Try singing the melody la-la-la or ta-ta-ta as you play, so you can easily memorize the notes.
First, focus on shorter fingers (5th and 4th) until they feel and sound strong. Keep your wrist and hand loose and relaxed as you do this.

Second, notice that the phrasing is short but each phrase is longer than one bar. Always think over the bar and into the next one. Bar lines are the enemy. Put the emphasis on the first note of each phrase, not each bar (accent the first beat in the left hand only!).

The verses ask for a different timbre, a deeper touch and a slight tenuto. Don’t attack the keys, put the fingers on the keys like a machine does.

Left Hand

After nailing the RH, focus on the LH. Practise the LH alone to ensure a proper bass.
This is one of those pieces where a major part of the practising is dedicated to an accompaniment.

The LH has a mild sound.

When playing accompaniment, start slow and steady. Only as you become more accustomed to the notes and fingering, begin to increase your speed.
Avoid being choppy and disconnected to enable expressing the sound to the fullest.

The zig-zag patterns are extremely tiring if you attempt to play using fingers lifted from the main knuckles. Move the forearm to help your fingers.

As you begin to practise both hands together, start slowly before gradually increasing your tempo.
In the last phase of learning a piece the use of a metronome is vital as you will be working on rhythmic partnerships between both hands. Nearly all modern pop music contains a firm beat. Become aware of the underlying ’pulse’ and accent where the ’stronger’ beat falls but remember that more is less. Avoid over-using your left hand. Aim at simple and clear playing.
Focus on soloing with the right hand without relying on the accompaniment in the left hand. Make every single note that you play to mean something.
⚠ In playing any piano transcription of a song, the aim is to give the impression of a singer (the RH) that is being accompanied by a sensitive pianist (the LH). Imagine a duet between a band and a singer, so color the two hands differently. Coordinating the parts may take some time to organise convincingly.

Pedaling

I recommend a pedal change for every chord that is written above the staves.
