Чему вы научились?
You'll learn and understand the basic skill set that the best players use to learn to play Piano.
You'll grasp how to connect your ear to the piano, in order to play what YOU hear, not just learn by rote.
You'll gain a concrete set of terms, and insight into how to understand the keyboard in a geographical sense, like a city you can explore, by feel.
You'll learn about the incredible importance of keeping good time, and how to do just that!
You will understand that there are TWO melodies to every song, and between them they make a whole tune. This will also SHOW you the harmony, rather that having to read it off a jazz "chart.".
You'll learn a simple song as a model for how you learn all songs, at their simplest core level, so you can actually hear and play and improvise with them, rather than learning a static, higher sounding level by rote. Static meaning you can only play it the same way every time.
You'll master simple, clear shortcuts to improvisation, which, by the way, are the way you really improvise.
You will have fun and be able to show off at parties and get dates :)
You'll start to master the ability to express who you are through the medium of Jazz Piano.
О курсе

This course is an introduction to learning how to REALLY play piano. It uses jazz as an example, but can apply to any style of music you want to learn. Music can help you in your daily life. No, it can't solve everything, but it can connect you with something bigger than yourself, and offer refuge and connection in yourself, and for others when you ultimately play for and with them. Yes, it takes some discipline, but even a minute a day is a start. This course presents information in a clear and simple way. It doesn't teach you "pieces" that you learn like typing. It teaches you how to connect your ear to the piano, and ultimately, play whatever you feel and hear inside. And the piano is so fun, like a giant box of color paints that never runs out, so you are learning a skill that will stand you in good stead for the rest of your life.

We will look at such things as keyboard geography (the keyboard is like a city you visit, and learn to walk around!), the importance of good time and how to keep it (it's learning a rhythmic dance!) by tapping your foot, how songs are made of two melodies, how a good song teaches you its own harmony (no paper no nothing needed!) how to play what you hear, not hear what you play. We look at how to connect your singing voice to what you play on the piano (I don't care WHAT your 3rd grade teacher said about your musical ability, all humans are musical!!), with the ultimate goal of having fun, expressing your own musical soul and playing for yourself and if you want, for and with other people.

It's also really cool to note that a recent study based out of Harvard Medical School shows that "Music has the unique ability to go through alternative channels and connect different sections of the brain." Musicians have an "enhanced ability to integrate sensory information from hearing, touch, and sight." and "the ability to improvise improved brain connectivity resulting in less dependence on working memory." In other words, Music wires you up to better see the world. It's like having a magical ability. And, it's never to late to learn.

Most Jazz is taught in what I consider a disconnected fashion. You get lots of info on reading notes or charts, playing scales, what mode works over a chord, the mathematics of harmony, etc., butthey never really talk about learning a song and improvising with it at its most simple, fundamental level.

It is interesting to note the Art Tatum, long considered to be the greatest Jazz Piano player who ever lived, couldn't see.Errol Garner, another amazing jazz pianist,who composed "Misty,” couldn’t read music.So what's going on here?This course will tell you.It will teach you to learn piano like the greatest players always have, from the ground up, by ear, using your fingers to feel your way, governed by the rhythmic dance of time you teach to your body.Accept no shortcuts.

The Real Tools Of Playing

Here we begin to discuss the why's behind learning to play what you hear, at a very simple level, to begin mastering jazz piano.

But Wait, That's Not A (Jazz/Pop/Whatever Genre) Song!!!

Some people would argue that jazz is a specific repertoire of songs. In this lecture, I give my particular take on this subject.

Before You Begin
A brief slide to let you know the best way to utilize this course.Essentially, you want to do as much of this course as possible with a piano right in front of you.
About Pianos/Keyboards/Digital Recorders
This lesson is about what tools you need or might want, in terms of pianos/keyboards/digital recorders/players to help you learn.Discussed in this video are (I like them but am not endorsing them):

A Brief Note About Time
Here is our first brief introduction to the concept of keeping a steady beat by tapping our foot.This "externalizes" the beat which will prove very useful over time.
The Geographical Keyboard - Feeling Your Way Thru The Paths

In this lesson, we learn a common language forfinding our way around the keyboard, and describing the locations we find.

Finding a note
Here we learn how to find a note, using our voice and a keyboard pattern trying to match the note you sing to the right one on the piano.Then we mark/remember its location using our keyboard language from Lecture 9.
Singing Through The Piano
This lesson is about learning about the way to put music on the piano through the use of your voice and ears, rather than just learning disconnected "typing" or rote playing on the keyboard.Eventually, connecting your ear and voice will lead to being able to improvise.
  • A piano/keyboard, one working ear, two working fingers, and a willingness to explore.
