Bebop Piano - 10-WEEK ONLINE CLASS

When: Thu., Jan. 14, 6-7:30 p.m. 2021

Thursdays, 6 - 7:30 pm, 1/14 - 3/18 (10 weeks). Study the soloing techniques developed by the great bebop pianists Bud Powell, Tommy Flanagan, Barry Harris, Hampton Hawes, Oscar Peterson, and others. These masterful pianists developed a linear concept akin to Charlie Parker and other great bebop horn players’ innovations. Learn to play flowing 8th-note line improvisations outlining the underlying harmony, drawing on the techniques developed and exemplified by these mid-century innovators. This style of “playing changes” is a core element of contemporary jazz improvisation and is an essential part of any aspiring jazz pianist's toolbox: Instructor - Adam Shulman
