Go to http://jazzpianoschool.com/singers to get on our VIP list for our new specialty course release…”Singer Accompaniment Mastery” coming July 10th!
This is a topic within jazz piano education that I get asked about A LOT! For good reason too.
Fortunately, most of the work I get actually come with playing with singers. I’ve excelled at this throughout my career from playing in a church for a long time. In church, I’ve had to accompany singers in all sorts of styles, genres and situations. Let me tell you, the path is not easy.
I’m confident these basics will get you started on the right path. Enjoy!
- 1. Medium to Up-Tempo Tunes – LH Bass notes, RH Rootless Voicings
- 2. On medium to slow tunes make sure you set a solid, solid time foundation for the singer.
- 3. Remember you are not being featured. Your goal is to support the singer and make them sound their best!
