Amazing Phrasing is for any keyboard player interested in learning how to improvise and how to improve their creative phrasing. This method is divided into three parts.
  • Melody
    From scales to arpeggios, from using licks, riffs, and runs to playing "outside," this section focuses on melodic strategies for improvisation. Wondering what to do with your right hand when it's time for you to take the lead? Not sure how to build a solo from start to finish? Here's where to begin.

  • Harmony
    Whether comping or soloing, harmony is essential to improvisation, and this section covers it. Need to harmonize a melody in your right hand? Want to learn to comp with your left hand while soloing with your right? Need some common chord progressions to practice? How about some two-handed voicings for your combo playing? Want to add chord extensions or create a bass line?

  • Rhythm and Style
    Swing, laying back, shaping your phrases with accents...this last section puts the finishing touches on your improvisational technique. You'll learn approaches to working with and around other musicians, and you'll practice comping and soloing over progressions in various styles - from rock to bossa nova to swing to bebop.
