This workshop is designed to give you the introduction to an approach for learning piano harmony and theory, maximizing understanding of theoretical concepts through shape and visualization, to aid in improvisation.  This method is primarily for non-pianists seeking to improve their knowledge of harmony and theory through the piano. 

For the workshop, it would be helpful to have a pen/pencil for notes and a keyboard/piano.  PDF worksheets will be provided.  Each participant will receive a 25% discount opportunity for the book “The Piano Grip System:  An Approach to Learning Jazz Harmony.”

  2. scales including major, Dorian, melodic minor and diminished
  3. piano voicings including closed and drop two
  4. application to the jazz standard Stella by Starlight
  5. inversions, common chord progressions and enharmonics
