Popular Piano Enhancement is for those who would like deeper insights into how to improve the quality of their piano playing.
More comprehensive understanding of harmony and styling can provide the sounds one might imagine which seem just outside your grasp, even though all the while the better chords and keyboard approaches may be just one or two notes away. Much of this deficit can be greatly improved through a careful appreciation of chordal structure.
Enhanced harmonic configurations often include intervals of the ninth, eleventh, and thirteenth. Students will be encouraged to play in all twelve keys with equal facility. Subject song material is drawn primarily from the best of the Great American Songbook.
