Clinic

“Jazz Piano Skills for Non-Pianists”

Show More Info

10am-3pm (with a break 12:30-1:30pm)

The piano is an invaluable tool for any jazz musician. This workshop focuses on things a non-pianst (or non-jazz pianist) can do to efficiently acquire skills that will be useful in their music. The goal is not to become a performing pianist; rather, it is to be able to use the piano to improve your ear, to help you learn songs, to demonstrate ideas to bandmates, and eventually to compose and arrange music. As a result, this workshop is very different from “beginning jazz piano”. Subjects will include: roles of the left and right hand, simple chord voicings with a pathway to more complexity, bass notes and bass lines, and the ranges of the piano most appropriate for different purposes.
Appropriate for jazz players with a minimum of piano knowledge or non-jazz pianists interested in jazz.
Prerequisite: Some familiarity with the piano, not necessarily jazz. Participants should be able to at least find individual notes.
