Arlington Jones The Way I Hear It™ Jazz Piano Techniques Master Class
Saturday, October 20, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Steinway Hall - Fort Worth
Throughout my years of teaching and touring, I've met a lot of people who have expressed the desire to be more creative in their piano playing. Many pianists wish they could improvise and don't know how to begin. Others long to understand how to spell and play "big" chords as well as how to use them in a performance. Some just want a few techniques to enhance their existing knowledge.
The Way I Hear It™ Jazz Piano Techniques Book & Master Class is for intermediate to advanced piano students. Even if you are not trying to become the next great jazz pianist but want to become better at playing the piano, you can use jazz techniques to help expand your knowledge and apply it to whatever style of music you want to play. My goal is to give you more creativity, a better sense of music theory, and an ability to feel comfortable enough to improvise at any level. More importantly, I intend for you to have fun while doing it!
The Way I Hear It™ Jazz Piano Techniques Book & Master Class can also be a useful tool for piano teachers. If you are interested in introducing jazz piano and improvisational techniques to your students, then this book and class is for you too!
