Excellent course!
It was challenging and fun. Excellent explanation, beautiful content. Thank you so much professor John Proulx. I can’t wait to play and learn that melody.
Challenging, doable, and confidence building
Whether you are gigging for yourself, your family and friends, or a more formal audience setting, this is the perfect approach for learning a must-have-standard for your permanent repertoire. With or without the backing track, you will have a professional sounding arrangement of a timeless song. Plus, if you want to take a next step, there is a bonus scale for creating a solo from four different five-note positions so your right hand needn't be jumping around. I was left looking forward to Misty - Challenge 2 for more next-level skills!
Very helpful and inspiring
John Proulx taught me step by step how to get into this beautiful piece Misty with left and right hand as well as harmonies and rhythm. He gave the student/me room to understand and follow his teachings. Thank you so much. I feel ready for the next challenge.
