A truly engaging and atmospheric piece of music and probably one of the best known TV theme tunes from Simon May.

You have four versions of EastEnders for Piano to practise :
1. EastEnders - with the piano sound as a guide. Choose Right Hand or Left Hand or both. Practise one hand while the other is played for you. This version has mainly single lines in both hands with a few chords.

2. EastEnders - without the piano sound as a guide. You now can be the soloist with the band.
3. EastEnders - with more chords to practise and play. It’s a little more difficult but worth the practice.
4. EastEnders - with more chords to practise and play; but without the piano sound. Again you can be the soloist with the band.

• All are in the key of E Flat; the key that is used on TV and all have the same full range of practice facilities.

Here's a Practice Plan:
• Choose a version to practise and Choose Tempo 35 to start with so that you can practise very slowly.
• Switch OFF Left Hand and Switch ON RH Fingering. Using appropriate fingering really will make it easier.
• Enter 1 for Start Bar and 2 for End and switch on the Repeat/ Loop
• Press Play and you will see and hear an introductory bar, the music will play through Bars 1 and 2 and fade on Bar 3.
• Play using the suggested fingering on the appropriate notes. At tempo 35 you can follow the fingering. Persevere it is worth it.
• On both hands: 1 is your Thumb; 5 is your ‘pinky’ .
• Go through the whole piece practising both hands separately and then together; choosing different Start and End bars until you can play all the way through without mistakes.
• Then choose a faster tempo and repeat the process. You will find that you will get through the piece much quicker as you increase the tempi – as long as you do not move on until you are perfect !
