A Million Dreams

Today we’re going to have a closer look at A Million Dreams – one of the many hit songs from The Greatest Showman – written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

In the film, it’s sung by the lead character – P. T. Barnum (then a boy), expressing his dreams to his future wife. Later in the song, his adult self takes over , recounting the same dreams.

Here is the original version.

So – some questions for you all as per last week.

  1. In what key is the song? Does it change at all?
  2. How many beats in a bar?
  3. How many bars in Verse 1, Bridge 1 and Chorus 1? 3 separate answers please.
  4. What are the notes played by the piano in the intro? 4 bars worth please.
  5. What are the first 4 chords of the Middle 8 section (after second chorus).

Please feel free to leave your answers as comments.

Answers and chord chart in tomorrow’s blog…

I'm Kieran and I play piano. Actually I do a bit more than just playing - I teach others how to play, and I write music, arrange it and host/produce shows.
