Below you will find links to teasers for each of my four instructional videos. In these videos, I discuss the topics and play examples. When I play the examples, you will see the music notation above and my hands on the keyboard below. I hope you find these videos helpful. Please don't hesitate to contact me if there is something in a video that I didn't explain clearly enough!
Undertanding a Tune - In this video, I go through all the aspects of a tune to consider when making choices of scales for improvisation. The video includes an analysis of one of my tunes that covers five main considerations.
Analyzing Tunes - This video is an in-depth application of the concepts in Video 1. I analyze two of my tunes and play them.
Using Guide Tones - This is a discussion of guide tones that move through a chord progression and can be used as anchor tones for improvisation.
