Kevin Hays
Master pianist Kevin Hays will be conducting another in a series of workshops for pianists (and other instrumentalists interested in developing their harmony, line playing, improvisation, piano skills, etc.) on Sunday August 19th at the Church St School for Music & Art, NYC from 1-4:00pm.

These are small, intimate classes (ten person max) with an opportunity to play, ask questions, problem solve at the piano and discuss whatever issues students wish to bring forward.

Topics will include:

Harmonic Development on Standards and Originals

Voice Leading through progressions and in soloing (applicable to all instruments)

Rhythm and Phrasing - “Demystifying Swing"

Creating New Voicings Spontaneously

Melodic and inventive line playing – Breaking Free of patterns and “licks"

Solving Technical Problems

The Art of Building a Solo

These workshops can fill quickly so pre-registration and non-refundable payments are required. Click the link for more information and to register: ezregister.com

“This workshop is really great. Kevin’s ability to balance the presentation of musical concepts with personal demonstration and hands-on coaching was perfect. It allowed for the session to have a private lesson feel, but with the advantages of group input only possible in the context of a larger master class. I learned a lot - when's the next one??” - Gary Versace (Maria Schneider, John Scofield, John Abercrombie, Al Foster)
