I watced your video, I enjoyed it and benefitted from it a great deal. I'm interested in jazz piano, even though I've not really every explored the genre as a composer. I look forward to watching more of your videos and learning more about piano improv.

I’m happy to invite you to enjoy any of 20 in-depth master classes on youtube and Ustream, each class focuses on a major figure in contemporary music and analyzes the concepts and musical elements used to create their styles. These include Bill Evans, Dave McKenna, Charles Ives, a walking bassline master class, an ear training clinic, playing outside the changes clinic, Frank Zappa, Charlie Parker, Eric Dolphy, the Marx Bros, Bruce Hornsby, the Grateful Dead, Lennie Tristano, Dick Hyman, Eric Dolphy, Oscar Peterson, Liberace, and others.

All free, no commercials:) FYI, I am now teaching students via skype worldwide, and it is fantastic) For a limited time, to celebrate my 40th year teaching jazz, the first skype lesson is free with no obligation)

Blessings and keep swingin!
