In this three hour workshop, geared towards intermediate to advanced pianists, Bob will be covering a wide variety of techniques relevant to playing the piano in a band. Drawing on thirty years of experience, he’ll cover topics including starting and ending songs, voicings, effective modulations, the use of the left hand, modernizing hymns, individual vs. group playing, and more. A video shot of the keyboard will be projected for more effective communication. Note: Bryan Dietrich will be teaching a more basic seminar for classical pianists who want to learn to play by ear as part of the regular conference seminar track. Also in the regular seminar track, Roger Hooper will be teaching a seminar on using the synthesizer.
