Soloing as a jazz pianist is a killer blend of voicings played by the left hand, voicings played by both hands, and melodies played in the right hand. The left hand is also a rich melodic resource. Learn about harmony expressed vertically by the left hand, as well as by the right hand. We will explore these topics as well as the concept of the piano as a triple-threat: it’s a percussion instrument, chordal instrumental, and melodic instrument all rolled into one. All instrumentalists and vocalists welcome.
High speed internet is required. The classes are provided over a Zoom platform. Links will be provided after registration.
