I usually listen to these songs on You Tune and then select the keyboard style that sounds nearest to it.

Epic Ballad in Easy listening goes well for I dreamed a Dream.

Try Animation Ballad for Million Dreams but perhaps mute some of the tracks. You can hear Elaine playing it on the performers page.

Thanks Eileen for the mention.
Here is the link to that cover song of A Million Dreams that used the on board Animation Ballad,, tempo at 134.  with a few
channels muted.   Would like to work on the other songs from the show,, Never Enough and This is Me..  Hope this helps
other players who might want to play this song and the leadsheets have been uploaded on the sheet music board.
cheers

As a general method to find a style that works for a particular song -
- select a possible style
- Tap the tempo you want to play this song and start the style
- hum a few bars while playing the chord changes
- without stopping the style select a different style and repeat
Using this method you can audition a bunch of possible styles side by side in a minute or two and find the one you like best. With experience you will learn to narrow down style candidates so you donít have to try too many

Remember there is also the 'style recommender' function. It's a bit limited, and only works on preset styles, but is sometimes useful to find a style with a particular beat.
