I've been playing piano since I was 8. Mostly this reinforced many things I've heard over the years. However there were new ideas too, which escape me at the moment. I will be reviewing the notes for some time.
Well I'm speechless, definitely gonna walk through the whole course again at the piano with the music sheets! Very motivating course, Herbie is a great musician and a great person! Thank you!
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
Herbie was great at explaining the philosophical aspects of jazz piano, but I would have liked to have seen a little more piano playing.
