I saw La La Land a couple of weeks ago, and I was absolutely surprised at how much I loved it! Having grown up in L.A. and lived there for most of my life, I was curious about how the city would be portrayed in the movie. I also was kind of afraid it would be a predictable sugary-sweet love story.
Well, I’m glad to say that story was really well written and the acting, superb. I won’t give away any spoilers in case you haven’t seen it. Just trust me, if you like musicals, you need to see this movie.
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone did a great job with the score written by Justin Hurwitz. The music was married really well to the script and set the perfect mood. I couldn’t stop hearing it in my head long after I had left the theater. So I decided to make a couple of piano arrangements and tutorials just for fun. Turns out, they are quickly becoming some of my most popular videos.
Here are my performances and tutorials, and the sheet music can be found in the “Free Downloads” section of my website. Have fun learning to play this gorgeous music!
