I've learned alot through this masterclass. Herbie has such a big experience and is very good in transmiting it. I would just like for the play through sheets and digital piano on-screen to be back, so I can practice playing easier while watching the class.
I am Looking Forward Learning From The Masters!
I can never play anything but the most basic jazz: a few 7/9 chords. But seeing the struggles even a great player like him has gone through along with his humility is inspiring. There's no reason I can't work hard, find my own voice, and reach my own level.
He did not know the person who is Herbie beyond his mastery of jazz piano. More than the techniques he taught, I really enjoyed listening to him talk about how a human being can be happy doing music that makes others happy. It was quite important for me to continue. Thank you Herbie
