Have you ever wanted to learn piano accompaniment in a solo setting? Well then this workshop is just for you!

Using the popular jazz standard, “The Way You Look Tonight” by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields, I will show you several solo accompanying techniques including playing 2-hand open voicings, 3-note voicings with a bossa groove, and 2-hand voicings with melodic fills. That, coupled with a beautiful intro and ending and you’ll be able to play a complete arrangement of the song by the end of the workshop. Can’t wait to see you there!
