Hey I’m Tuomo Uusitalo, musician and composer, originally from Finland but currently residing in NYC. Many of you might already know me from my lessons here on PianoGroove.
I’m excited to have this forum section to connect with Piano Groove students directly. I’m going to be covering topics such as improvisation, jazz language and harmony. The exercises are short transcriptions that develops your ear and teaches you to get familiar with intervals, melodies and harmony. Once transcribed, you can learn the material in every key, and apply it to your own playing.
Each week there will be 3 Exercises, ranging from beginner to advanced. All 3 levels have 2 parts, melodic and harmonic exercise.
I will provide few tips on every exercise, and will post the right answer here at the forum the day before posting the next weeks exercise.
Also I will be present here at the forum daily, so if you have any questions, or need guidance with the exercise, don’t hesitate to ask!
Thank you, looking forward working with you guys!
