Ep 24: Cool Gigs! Why We Do It!

by | May 28, 2023 | Podcast | 0 comments

Playing music is a blast! It’s a blast for us as musicians, and it’s a blast for our listeners. It’s why we do it.

Learning and practicing is fun, writing music is fun, listening is fun, rehearsing is fun, but actually performing  for an audience

is why we do it. The energy exchange that happens when you’re playing for people is really powerful. 

It can be a big crowd at a large venue, or playing solo piano in a small club.

Sometimes just having one person listening can change the whole dynamic.

This is a spontaneous riff on that from my own experience.

If you want to learn how to play Jazz, but don’t know where to start, the KEYS TO JAZZ BOOTCAMP is for you!

This six week online course will introduce you to the important concepts you need to start making your own music.

We’ll cover topics like; how to play different grooves; swing, latin, funk, etc. Getting a good feel with rhythmic phrasing

and syncopation. Understanding harmony; chords and scales and how to use them to improvise and compose your own tunes.

Making your own melodies. And most importantly, how to learn by listening.

The course will feature weekly online meetings, and personalized instruction for each student.

Course begins June 3.
