Hey team! It’s been quite a while since my last post. I’ve been busy with graduate school, learning about film scoring, orchestration, video game programming, sound design, and much more. BUT. I’m back, and ready to keep you updated with new jazz piano materials! Here’s the info for the first in a series of new videos:
This short piano tutorial will teach you how to play an interesting augmented lick.
I teach online private lessons. If interested, email me at JazzPianoConcepts@gmail.com
This short instructional lesson will help you build your arsenal of piano voicings, which can of course be useful for improvisation, composition and arranging. This particular voicing works nicely for navigating 2-5-1 chord progressions.
Overuse injuries are particularly common in high-performing athletes and musicians. This article focuses on reducing and eliminating forearm pain, inflammation and tendinitis. A while back, I promised you a guide for how you can deal with these problems, so here it is! I tried to keep it concise and informative. Remember, this is based on my personal experience and I am by no means a doctor, so just as a disclaimer, you are applying these methods at your own risk. That being said, I have dealt with tendinitis for many years and have experimented with a multitude of different methods and techniques for overcoming over it. Much of my experience is not covered in this short guide. For further detail or personal questions, feel free to email me at JazzPianoConcepts@gmail.com.
