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.
Started off philosophical, which didn't do it for me, but soon got into actual techniques and practicum. Bravo! Very useful. Well done, Mr. Hancock.
Awesome class by the great Herbie! I learned a lot from this class ranging from music to life. Thanks again Herbie!
Thanks for the lessons, your most important point is be yourself, you have your own sound, and style. even to this day I've tried to copy you, Joe Sample and Bob James. always came up short . I've always known that I had my own flavor in music, so I guess I'll just keep working it out. thanks again William Maurice Caldwell
