In this month’s collaboration, you’re going to improvise a jazz ballad solo while Jonny plays an accompaniment.
To participate, simply follow these these 3 steps:
- Play the attached practice track and practice soloing with Jonny. If you’re not sure how to solo over a jazz ballad, you can learn in this month’s Jazz Ballad Soloing Challenge here.
- Set your smartphone or tablet next to your keyboard and record yourself playing with the below performance video (not the practice track). Make sure you are recording in landscape mode (not vertical), the lighting looks good, and make sure you that your keyboard audio and my accompaniment audio are loud enough for your camera microphone to pick up. Also, I recommend recording your face and your hands so viewers get the full experience 😊
- Upload your video to this link by June 30th at 11:59pm PT. All participant’s videos will be edited into a final performance video and published next month in the PWJ membership.
Lastly, feel free to dress up and have fun with this! This is your chance to shine!
That’s it! Now let’s hear you improvise a jazz ballad!
