Can You Hear The Difference between my 5'3 Baby Grand and this 7'4 expensive Bösendorfer? Using my Rode NT4 stereo condenser microphone record,, I play you two examples and quiz you to see if you can tell the difference between expensive and well...cheaper. Thanks to Keyboard Concepts of Santa Monica for the opportunity to play this beast! It was so fun.
It's not really NEW, but it might be new to YOU. A contemporary rhythmic addition to your playing; the all-syncopated straight 8th style which originates from the Brazilian Polka style of guitar playing. Have fun with it and let me know if it was helpful to you!
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 know I preach a lot of information about improvisation. I'm not sure that I follow it all in this performance of Harold Arlen's "Let's Fall In Love," but sometimes, I don't know...you just gotta go for it. Improvising in harmony with myself is something I work on quite a bit, but I rarely show it. I hope that will change as I practice more.

For over half my life, I've been inspired by Bobby McFerrin. My drive to be better, to push myself, and to always be working on something interesting comes from what I've learned from listening to his recordings and watching everything "Bobby-related" on the internet that I can find. This is a video to say thank you and tell Mr. McFerrin and the whole world what an impact his music and teaching have had on me. Much thanks and love. Aimee
There is so much to learn before you can adequately comp - before you can successfully be the one in the band who lays down the harmony for everyone else. Whether you are a piano, organ, guitar, or vibes player in your jazz band, this video will provide an overview, but also very specific advice about how to comp - from voicings to rhythms to a deep understanding of what your purpose is as a chord instrument.
Some ideas about how to comp on this classic jazz standard, as well as a fun idea at the end of the video based on montuno rhythms. If you'd like the worksheet for that final idea: Comping On Sonny Rollins' "St. Thomas"
Temporary modulations to the mediant and submediant are very common in jazz and popular music. It's important to learn to recognize them when they occur, hear the difference between them and know how to predict them when playing chords by ear.
In this video, we pick apart Bill's 1962 recording of Danny Boy from the album Empathy that he made with Shelly Manne and Monty Budwig. We uncover some important elements of his solo piano playing, as well as some insight into his trio playing. The most important element of this recording in my opinion is the way he makes you...........wait for it.

Playing minor ii V i licks in all keys is one of the best ways I know to improve your soloing skills.There's no better way to get new phrases into your head then by figuring them out in all the keys and drilling them over and over.

By using 3 simple elements, you can take nearly any jazz standard and arrange it for solo piano.

Scott Holden is a dear friend of mine who knows the piano inside and out. He holds music degrees from University Of Michigan, Manhattan School of Music, and the Julliard School where he was a recipient of the Horowitz Prize. Scott and I met when we were both living in Washington Heights in New York City and it was a pleasure to hang out with him and play/talk about music. Part two is coming soon, when I help Scott out with his jazz chops. Scott could use a boost in subscribers.

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.

Chances are, if you're a beginning jazzer, you don't swing yet. You may think that you do... but you probably don't yet! I was once you. This is how I learned to swing. Hope it helps all you future swingin cats.
Using the tune "I Love You, For Sentimental Reasons", I show you in this video how to play in the spaces; the places where there is a break in the melody and room for a little ad lib to move the song along and give it some motion and variety. Watch and see when to use piano fills and how to create them!

New Orleans blues, is a subgenre of blues music and a variation of Louisiana blues that developed in the 1940s and 1950s in and around the city of New Orleans, rooted by the rich blues roots of the city going back generations earlier. Strongly influenced by jazz and incorporated Caribbean influences, it is dominated by piano and saxophone but has also produced major guitar bluesmen. Major figures in the genre include Professor Longhair and Guitar Slim, who both produced major regional, R&B chart and even mainstream hits.

Voicing simple 7th chords in every key is something all jazz pianists (and pianists who play from lead sheets in general) should be able to do. Without getting too fancy with 9ths and 13ths and altered tones, I'd like to help you be able to simply voice all major, minor, dominant and half diminished chords simply and beautifully with this very musical exercise.

Let's break it down and talk about this little nuance that adds to the genius of this pianist.
