Class Experience

Students will be able to improvise in the right hand using chords, inversions, riffs, and licks. 
I have a bachelor's degree in Music Education from SUNY Fredonia, a master’s degree of Kodály in Music Education from Loyola University Maryland, and 10+ years experience of Blues/Boogie Woogie improvisation on the piano. I'm incredibly passionate about passing on what I've learned about piano improvisation to students, as I wish I had more access to high quality improvisation instruction when I was younger.
1-2 hours of practice is recommended per week. 
Students will need a keyboard or a piano. It is recommended to point the camera at the keys if possible. 
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
