Now you may be thinking,…
“Okay Brenden, now you’re talking about unicorns and leprechauns.”
And when I spoke with Dr. Joe Gilman, pianist with Bobby Hutcherson for many years, I thought the exact same thing.
And it became even more UNBELIEVABLE when he said based on his easy and clear system the sound you would achieve would closely resemble the atmosphere and style of the great…
wait for it…
Now he was putting me on.
But I took a second and thought to myself.
Maybe there was a more systematic way to work through the arranging process of a tune…
And what if this could be broken down into a process?
I had to check out what this was about!
I thought about all the things students struggle with when attempting to play a jazz standard so they actually feel HAPPY and SATISFIED because it SOUNDS GOOD!
What were the hardest aspects of opening up to a new tune and being able to instantly create a beautiful sounding arrangement on the spot?
- How do you take the simple melody and chords symbols a real book gives you and transform that into a BEAUTIFUL, luscious piece of music?
- How and where do you add extensions and color tones while not interfering with the melody and chords?
What do I play to get a rich, well balanced jazz sound when the music only gives me the melody and chord symbols?
- How do I arrange the notes between my two hands, when I’m in a low, middle or high register of the piano?
- Is there a way for me to quickly and easily produce a lush jazz sound just like I hear being played on the albums?
and so many, so many more…
These are the questions EVERY jazz piano student asks themselves at one point or another while learning how to play jazz tunes.
And unfortunately, in order to reach the level you want…
…you have to KNOW the answers to all those questions.
Just like my past self…most likely you do not.
But I have good news.
Fortunately, that’s exactly why Jazz Piano School and Dr. Joe Gilman have teamed up.
So that you DO KNOW the answers to all those questions and more importantly…
Can EXECUTE them on the piano in your playing as well!
