Fascinating insights and tips from Jack and Dan, two of the most talented and experienced touring session players.
The great keyboard player from Jamiroquai shares some fascinating insight into his techniques for playing funk keyboards. A lot of inspiring riffs and bass-lines to learn here!
Phil is a player I admire a lot after I discovered his Pianoteq videos. He’s a fabulous improviser as well as classic player. I enjoyed this discussion of groove applied to classical music performances.
Interesting video by Jamal from Gospel Musicians about borrowing from the relative minor to add tension and interest. Nicely demonstrated and with some wonderful chord voicings to analyse and explore!
Wonderful, fun and highly recommended video from my friend Jack Duxbury on your first steps as a beginner piano player. Jack takes a nice approach to fast track you past the theory and get you making nice sounding music as quickly as possible.
The fabulous and talented Aimee Nolte breaks down some of the incredible riffs played by Oscar Peterson on one of the tunes from a favorite album of mine, Night Train. Aimee gives some fascinating insight and demonstrations of the techniques used by Oscar.
Corey demonstrates wonderfully how using inversions can completely transform the sound of your playing. Something I already do myself but I realise there is even more possibilities and options after watching this lesson.
My favorite demo guy, the funny, mega-talented and lovely Jack D shows us some essential tricks on the Hammond organ. Fun trivia fact, we come from the same home town!
Another excellent lesson from Jake who shows us how to build chords and progressions from the minor scale. This is a topic I’m exploring myself to provide more options and colours than what you get from the major scale chords.
Yet another lesson from the wonderful Warren. I’ve watched over and over again, replicating what Warren plays on my own piano, There are hundreds of gems in just the first ten minutes, some very tasteful licks, turnarounds, voicings and passing chords. Highly recommended!
