As a teacher, I take great delight in making the complicated simple. I love to challenge the old ways of thinking about music and present it in a more cohesive way – connecting the dots to reveal the big picture.
But every once in a while, in thinking how to communicate a concept, I realize that I tend to undervalue the amount of time and practice it’s taken me to develop my skills and understanding. As much as I’d like to help you jump straight to where you want to be, there’s a process that needs to happen. There are skills to master over time, through diligent effort.
Teaching is not just simplifying the complex. Teaching is about helping others learn. Sometimes that simply means pointing someone down the path to growth.
In listening to your feedback over the last few years, I’ve become familiar with the typical keyboardist’s struggles to develop melodic playing, technical facility, rhythmic skills, left hand technique, and more. These skills take time to develop, but I think I’ve put together a pretty good roadmap for you.
