Horace Silver “Song for My Father” (Jazz Piano Lessons)

Take some piano lessons from Scott Houston “The Piano Guy.” In this video, Scott and his guest, David Benoit show you how to play “Song For My Father.”

If you want to watch a video of Scott teaching simply the bare, bones version of the song first, click the link below.

Benoit and Houston discuss the importance of quality “seat time” PLAYING songs versus practicing. As a working musician, Benoit shares that he usually works from a lead sheet not from traditional sheet music.

First, David demonstrates the right hand melody line part then the left hand bossa nova beat. Houston and Benoit share a tip to use if you are struggling with hand independence when playing with both hands together.

Houston simply wants to help you teach yourself piano skills to get you having some fun at a piano as quickly as possible.

The video concludes with a great performance of “Song For My Father”on piano by David Benoit.

Ever wondered, how long does it take to learn piano? I’ve created a video that talks about common mistakes students make when learning piano.

Just like learning anything in life, if you want to improve your skills you need to put in the time. Now, the question is…how much time is that?

Well, it depends. In the video I talk about how the question “how long does it take to learn piano” is not really the right question.

Instead, you need to focus on a few other piano practice elements. Watch this video to learn more.
