New Moon from Twilight Saga

November 28th, 2016 by Ah Doe

After several transcription works for some new dramas, Ah Doe thought it will be a good time to switch to something simple and free for everyone. When I say simple, it’s very likely to be something instrumental.

And here it is, New Moon piano sheet from Twilight Saga.

Composed by Alexandre Desplat, the structure of this song is fairly simple. A note at each count, complimented by a sonata like accompaniment at the bass clef.

Alexandre Desplat is an award winning composer for many films, some of his works are transcribed by Ah Doe before:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Wong Chia Chi’s theme – Lust Caution (色戒)

Facts about this piano sheet:

1) It’s in original key, i.e. A minor
2) Chords included

To play this piece beautiful, remember to use a lot of pedals to create the effects of echo, keep the bass soft to bring out the main melody. The simpler a music is, the harder it is to express it well.

Arranging Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Little Swans from Swan Lake

November 18th, 2016 by Ah Doe

Recently, there’s a request to arrange the piano accompaniment for this song called Dance of the Little Swans that is to be performed by a choir.

Dance of the Little Swans is a famous dance from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, from the ballet’s second act, the fourth movement of No. 13. Although it is famous for ballet, I pretty sure that a lot of you will be able to recognize its tune.

In this arrangement, human voice is used to replace the wind and strings instruments for main melody. Therefore the idea of having piano accompaniment is to put more weight on the bass and make the performance more rhythmic as there will not be other musical instruments to go with it. Of course, the piano can also serve as a reference so that the choir remains stable in its key.


Dance of the Little Swans by Ah Doe Music Score Preview

The music score is easy as the melody is already available. However, Ah Doe still includes the vocal tracks in the music score so it will be easier for the pianist to track where he/she is at while playing it.

The difficulty level of this music score is really nothing compared to orchestral music scores such as Game of Throne theme or Run Away (Ending Theme) from the Korean Drama My Love from the Star, phew~


Silly by Sherman Chung/Ken Hung (傻瓜- 鍾舒漫/洪卓立)Piano Sheet

November 11th, 2016 by Ah Doe

This is a simple and romantic song suitable for wedding or proposal. The tune is simple but the lyrics best describes a couple’s feeling when they are about to enter marriage.

Anticipation, anxiety, a little fear but most of all, it describes the mutual love for each other and their looking forward of sharing their future.

Boy: I won’t act silly if I hadn’t look into your eyes that can speak
Girl: This is the reason why I decide to keep your flowers and believe every single thing you say

Boy: You make my heart beat faster and want to kiss your cheeks
Girl: And I close my eyes and dream of those romantic moments with you

Boy: Do you think of me too?
Girl: Are you like me as well?
Boy: If love really arrives
Together: Will we accept it together?

Boy: I am a silly, the rain drizzles, the breeze whistles
Girl: Still feel a little scared when I think of the future
Boy: I will be with you every today
Girl: But will you fall in love with another tomorrow?

Girl: Shall we get set for the unknown journey ahead of us?
Together: Wherever it is, from youth till our hair turns grey
Girl: I just hope that you
Boy: I just hope that you
Together: Would still call me your silly

Boy: I am a silly, the rain drizzles, the breeze whistles
Girl: Still feel a little scared when I think of the future
Boy: I will give you a home, although not big
Girl: But it is big enough to contain our dreams

Together: We have been smart all this while, but would rather become silly for you
