    Enjoyed your podcast and hope you’re feeling better by the time to read this.
    I have a very unique and difficult challenge to overcome in 2020 and would like to tell you about it: I have been playing piano since the age of 10 (I’m 62 now). Not a great layer, but decent. About 10 years ago, I developed dupuytren’s contracture (see https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/dupuytrens-contracture/symptoms-causes/syc-20371943) , which affected the fifth fingers in each hand. I have gone through 5 separate surgeries, but dupuyten’s always comes back. My pinkies are useless. I haven’t really played the piano in the past 5 years because I find it frustrating to not be able to do what I want to. BUT, this year, I have set a goal: to overcome this “disability” by learning how to voice my chords differently, using my available good fingers. I think I can do it, but need some help and instruction on HOW to do this. What do you think? Am I setting a realistic goal or not?

  2. Hey Brenden – I love what you’re doing with the Jazz Piano School. It’s a great mission, and most importantly, it’s excellent content. For 2020, my goal is to master Rhythm changes in ALL 12 keys. Comping the changes, improvising, reharmonizing etc… Part of this goal is about developing a good efficient approach to learn anything in 12 keys, but I’ve been playing a long time, and still don’t feel like I have mastered this fundamental tune.

    Happy new year, and thanks for what you do, it’s awesome!

  3. I want to learn how to make cool solo piano improvisations to Erroll Garner’s “Misty” with an effective left-hand style of accompaniment.

    HI Brenben, I would like a good jazz piano foundation using a constructed method.
    I am at the state chunky left-hand root position chords with a stilted right-hand melody.
    Just like you state in your video. I need you and your teams help to develop a strong jazz piano foundation.
    Kind regards Michael

  5. Hi ‘Brendan, what a fantastic idea. My goal for this year to learn how to go outside during a jazz ballad.
    For example in a turnaround in Bb, I know there is a way of using the B natural scale, before resolving.
    I’ve not yet been able to make this sound natural.
    I want the rod. Someone hold this fish,
    Matt Collins
