🗳 Cast Your Votes!.... "Guest Live Seminar" Topics & Genres

Hey everyone :wave:

I am in the process of scaling up the live seminar side of the website by introducing more styles, genres, and teachers, and I need your votes and input.

I have created a poll below containing styles and genres of improvised music that are not currently covered in our live seminars. Some of these topics can be found in our courses and lessons on the website, but not in our live seminars.

Please note that these new styles will be in addition to the current live seminars on Jazz Piano, Vocal Studies, Brazilian Piano, & Gospel/Blues Piano.

Cast Your Votes Here :ballot_box:

Everyone can cast up to 5 votes on the styles they are most interested in.

What Styles Are You Most Interested In For Future Live Seminars?
  • Funk Piano
  • Jazz Fusion
  • RnB Piano
  • Neo Soul
  • Smooth Jazz
  • Contemporary Church Music
  • New Orleans Piano
  • Slow Blues
  • Cuban Piano / Salsa / Montunos
  • Bebop
  • Boogie-Woogie
  • Ragtime
  • Trad Jazz

Did I Miss Any Styles?

I believe that the poll cannot be modified after it has been launched for integrity purposes, but if I have missed any styles that you are interested in, please post them below and we will factor in all suggestions.

Thanks for your input :sunglasses:

I’d like to learn Ray Charles’ style.
(Added later -)
Davell’s course on Gospel music is thorough and detailed, but I’d like more references to it’s application in popular music. How does one apply Gospel chords and music to a piece like “yesterday” for example? “Hymn to freedom” has many Gospel elements, and although Oscar P’s rendition is unique the underlying sound is very like Ray Charles.

Love the vibe of the piano solo @Gregorio-L - thanks for sharing this.

I believe this style would fall under the Cuban Piano / Salsa / Montunos category.

I agree this would be a great style for a live seminar session… leave it with me :+1:

Love it Gregorio! I found a tutorial on YouTube a while ago on Cuban style. It’s hard on the right hand! I wasn’t committed enough and it’s all gone now, but I’d be game to trying again if it appears on PianoGroove!

I love Eliane Elias’s musical style. Perhaps it could be covered in the Brazilian Piano section.

Hi everyone,

April’s live seminars have been scheduled and uploaded, check them out here:

@George_Miller - we have a Ray Charles themed session on the 19th.

@Gregorio-L - I have reached out to a cuban jazz pianist and hopefully we can get a seminar scheduled this month on cuban piano styles.

@karl1, @ken1 and @colette - we can definitely cover all of these suggestions with our teaching team and I will get these topics scheduled in for May’s seminar listings.
