A Musical Tribute To Disney's Frozen

  11/28/15 02:33 pm, by Johnny Admin, Categories: Uncategorized

As we recover from our turkey-filled bellies this weekend, towns and cities across the country are beginning to light up for the coming Holiday season. With trees arriving in living rooms and city lights emerging in full bloom, we know that winter's kiss is just a few days away, if it hasn't already arrived for you, that is!

To celebrate, we've decided to have a special musical tribute to Frozen, the infamous Disney movie that shook the world by storm when it first came out in 2013.

Here's a quick summary of a few of the top songs of the movie, and some great recordings of these pieces that you'll have to check out!

Let It Go

Easily the most famous Disney song of the 21st century, and rivaling classics like A Whole New World, and Circle of Life in terms of overall popularity, Let It Go is the musical centerpiece of the movie, with themes from the song circling throughout the soundtrack to represent Elsa's emergence as a true individual and quest to define her own self.

Musically speaking, the song is fairly straightforward, with 4 chords that form the backbone of the piece, and a simple modulation about two-thirds of the way through the song.

Personally, I love this song as a duo between solo piano and voice, without the rest of the band. You can grab some great arrangements of Let It Go piano sheet music from http://disneypianosheetmusic.com, or listen to the video below for an incredible performance.

For the First Time in Forever

Another instant classic from Frozen is Princess Anna's reveille, For the First Time in Forever. This song captures the youthful energy and spirit of Princess Anna, who is absolute enthralled to be able to get out and meet people at the coronation ball. After having been confined to the castle for the majority of her life after her injury from Elsa's magic, Anna is both naive and wondrous about the world, and this song captures that state perfectly.

You can also download the official soundtrack from iTunes.

Learning To Play and Sing Frozen Songs

One of the best aspects of all of the Frozen songs is that they are all relatively easy to learn how to play and/or sing.

Though the versions used in the official soundtrack may sound intimidating to the novice pianist, there are a number of shortcuts and tricks that you can use to interpret these songs according to your own skill level.

If you're at all interested in learning to play some of these songs, I highly recommend you check out the arrangements listed in the links above, since they are designed to be playable by a wide range of students, not just professional pianists.

For the more advanced, there are all the thrills and frills of the original movie version, and then some, since the arrangements compress the entire orchestra and band into a single piano part. For beginners, on the other hand, there are shell versions available that show how to outline the basic chords and melody in a closed position that you can play without needing to have advanced technique.

Whatever your skill level, having a few of these songs at your fingertips is a great investment of your time. Not only are they fun to play, but since there are so many people who are already familiar with the songs, you'll find they can be great entertainment and impressive to your family and friends!
