Music as a Language: Victor Wooten at TEDxGabriolaIsland

It’s true I was born into a band,exceedingly literally, I mean that literally. When I was born, my four older brothers who were already playing music, knew that they needed a bass player( Laughter) to round out the family strip. I was born into that character. As I’m older I’m looking back right now , now that I’m called a teacher. When I look back on that, and how I was taught, I realized that I wasn’t really schooled. Which is why I say that music is a language; because if you think about your first language, for me, and perhaps most of us here might be English, so I’m just going to go with English. If you think about how you learned it, you recognise you weren’t taught it. Public simply spoke to you...

HOW TO PLAY MUSIC BY EAR (ear training for musicians)

( “Senorita” by Justin Timberlake) – Hi, YouTube, this is Julian Bradley. Today I’m going to talk about ear train. So I’ve got some advice which will speed up the process. First of all you need to get in the habit of listening to music in another way. Every piece of music you hear you need to be thinking what are the intervals? Whether it’s a trail on the radio, in a club, someone’s phone travelling off, a police siren travelling by, the fowls singing you want to be thinking, okay, what is that interval? What are those notes? Second of all my advice is when you’re starting out to try and stick to one key and to work in that key.

Doing that will construct you recognize a lot quicker that they’re the same notes that are coming up and the same chords, particularly in pop music, it’s the same ...

How to Start Piano Lessons for Pre-School Aged Children

Hi. Therefore welcomed The Piano Podcast. I’m Mario Ajero. In this video, I want to show some forte-piano pieces that you could teach to young preschool children as young as age three to prepare them for traditional piano lessons. I’m hoping this video is useful to both professional piano teachers as well as mothers who only want to give their young children a head start on piano lessons. One of the first activities that you can actually do at the keyboard is to teach your kids that the piano shall be made available in two black key and three black keys. Can you play two black keys like this? Once infants can find the two black keys, you can do short rhythmic patterns alternating between the two black keys like this one...

Larry Goldings – Jazz Organ Lesson 1

When you’re playing organ, you can be more orchestral, and they are able to have substance moving around that only adds to the texture of what’s going on, you know, in the band. You take your 9th ambiance and you move it down to the root, to the major 7, to the dominant 7, and you SUS it, and you resolve that with the 9 or the b9, you did the same happen here. The object is, I’m not just plotting down the chords, chord to chord, chord to chord, chord to chord. I want to be very economic in how I do it, so let’s look at this G child. Db9, I’m not moving anywhere. I want to harmonize this E, but I don’t want it to sound pedestrian, you are familiar, so what do I do? I go…

I wanted to get some crunchy memoranda in there...
