If you are playing melodies and ready to learn to embellish them, this class is for you! Using a simple melody, Phyllis will take you through learning the melody and then adding embellishments progressively until you have a lovely arrangement that you can play with pride! Phyllis teaches not just the tune, but HOW TO add the embellishments so that you can apply the methods to other tunes.
