Many of us have an understanding of jazz vocabulary, but we have trouble using that vocabulary to create deep effective music that speaks fluidly from our soul. In this video, I’m giving you a preview of 12 lessons that I’ll be doing over the coming weeks. This video is for Lewis, one of my students in the UK, who is a great pianist, technically, but has a lot to learn about musicality. The 12 lessons will be designed to strip away the excess notes and space-filler, and morph the remaining conceptual knowledge into a machine that can translate emotion and feeling directly from your heart through the piano to the world around you.

Focus: Second part of the song going over modal theory in improvisation plus a good look at ideas and chord connections… video gets better as ideas start flowing.
Practice: Apply the modal theory improvisation law to your own songs, or this song.
