Changing keys in the middle of The Star Spangled Banner by accident = BAD. Knowing how to play melodies by ear and transpose them on the spot = GOOD, DESIRABLE, and all around SWEEEEET.
Ever wish you could play piano while you sing? Maybe you wish you could play for your students or other vocalists, or instrumentalists. In this series, I teach you all of the important steps to start to be REALLY good at it! Walking bass lines, voicings, rhythms, styles...it's all right here.
I'm so sorry that the audio cuts out. Here is the missing audio transcribed: * Alright now we're talking about diminished chords. You can draw two boxes, we'll have a minor 3rd on top, and a minor 3rd on the bottom. And we can come over here and just flat that 5th degree, g flat, and we've got a minor third there, and a minor 3rd there. * A very simple video to demonstrate how to find the notes of chords in root position (using the key of C as an example) and how to write them down, or notate them, and be able to recognize them in your reading of music.

Adam Neely hurts my brain! He comes over to my house with his crazy musician dice and chaos ensues as we try to keep up with the Gods of Music Theory and CHANCE.

This is the exercise that my daughter Ella is playing in her video "Ella's Rootless Voicing Dice Game" and the philosophy behind why I taught it to her.
Shot from Keyboard Concepts in Santa Monica, CA, I met up with UCLA vocal jazz major, Katie Ward to have a lesson on this 7' 4" Bösendorfer 225 that retails for $175,000 but is ON SALE for $138,000. I watched Gerald Clayton give a recital on this piano, recently and was blown away by the EXTRA 4 notes added to the bottom to make this a 92 key piano.

My friend and student, Brenda Martin came over for a lesson today and we worked on Altman/Lawrence tune, "All Or Nothing At All." Here are the topics addressed and time stamps so you can easily navigate through the video, however it's quite a journey and I would recommend watching it from start to finish, to understand the context and...the journey.
