I’ve received many requests for a course on accompanying singers.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how to make this work and was just chatting to @natasha0412 over email about it and here’s where we’re at:
Find someone who can sing and play the piano
the only other way would be to have a piano player and a singer which from a logistical standpoint would be tricky to film, organise, sync, and edit the lesson.
I use a singing grade microphone (Rode NT1) for my voice on PianoGroove lessons, and so I already have the setup and equipment
This way the tutor could sing, accompany him/herself and then explain why he/she chose the voicings, chose to add fills etc…
It would also keep the lesson layout and format intact, giving the same viewing experience - I think it would work beautifully!
What does everyone think of this idea?
I’m actively looking for new tutors and I think a Singer/Pianist would be a great skill set to add to PianoGroove tutorials as they could really give you the low-down on how to accompany.
