Video Updates

Working on the piece, “Fly Me To The Moon.” Timing is sightly off and I need to figure out how to solo properly.

What Did I Struggle With?

Being able to solo.

I don’t understand the theory behind it. Getting to grips with jazz modes should help me with that.

A Goal For Next Week.

Get more confident with modes and soloing

I bought myself a midi keyboard to help me with my learning. There are a few useful learning programs that utilise a midi connection. Also, it’ll allows me to practice without disturbing the whole household as I can plug in headphones. It doesn’t compare to an upright piano, but it’ll be another useful tool to help me learn jazz piano.
