Lessons Dallas TX
Learning how to play the keyboard doesn't mean you have to sign up for classes, many people learn on their own. You can learn on your own too, with some simple lessons provided here.
Nothing strikes fear into the hearts of piano players like the mention of stride piano. This seemingly impossible old style is like ragtime on steroids, and pushes jazz pianists to the limit.
Whether you’re on the road, running from one gig to the next, or dealing with distractions at home, finding time to practice is difficult for all of us, here are some exercises, each of which focuses on a different element of playing, depending on what kind of gig it is. Try the ones I’ve outlined here, then make up your own to incorporate your favorite licks and runs in your daily warm-up routine.
The loudness of the note depends on how hard you strike the key. But even in the piano, quite a lot of technology (in the form of carefully balanced levers) goes into producing that effect.
A good way for you to incorporate this unusual chord into your own playing is to first substitute it for a maj7 chord. Next, you can start to use this color as a substitute forother types of chords. A good exercise is totake a standard, and change all the chordsto maj7#5 chords, using the original roots.
The chord chart for what I play could be the same for accompanying a number of different artists, but how I voice those chords may be radically different depending on the music. To illustrate that, Examples 1-5 present the same eight-bar chord progression in a variety of contexts — proof positive that the same chord can sound completely different depending on how you voice it.
McKinney Summer Musicals Puts on Damn Yankees
Dates: 7/10/2018 – 7/10/2018
McKinney North High School Mc Kinney
2550 Wilmeth Road
Damn Yankees will be the fourth show produced by McKinney Summer Musicals since their return to the McKinney spotlight in 2007. This performance offers a fun-filled truly "American" based story line. Based on the Faust legend, this musical features the ever-loosing Washington Senators baseball team who are in great need of a long ball hitter. Middle-aged Senators fan, Joe Boyd, agrees and in a moment of recklessness swears that he would do anything, even sell his soul, to earn the Senators that much needed hitter. Little does he know that his exclamation was heard by the devil who grants Joe's wish, turning him into the youthful, talented Joe Hardy who leads the Senators into victory as their new long ball hitter. Aided by sexy seductress, Lola, the devil believes he has Joe's soul for himself. But when Joe recognizes that his love for his wife Meg is more important than the success of his favorite baseball team, he and Lola out-smart the devil and win back Joe Hardy's original existence as Joe Boyd. It is a true "turning point" musical. Performances of Damn Yankees will be July 10 and 15-17 at 8:00 PM and July 11 and 18 at 2:00 PM.
