Great Percussionists (Who Happen to be Women)

...The follow-up to my last post, Great Drummers (Who Happen to be Women), seemed obvious- Great Percussionists (Who Happen to be Women)! Of course, drawing a clear distinction between the drummer and the percussionist can in many cases be a tricky endeavor. So, for the purposes of this post, we will be focused primarily on classical percussionists, on musicians who straddle many genres (or are simply uncategorizable), and others for whom the drum set is not a primary instrument.   As noted in the previous post, we all need role models that we can see ourselves in, people that we can easily identify with, and people who demonstrate...

Beginning Jazz Piano: Getting Started with Chords and Lead Sheets

...  Not that difficult, right? Well, if you have a good grasp on how to build major chords, then Minor and Diminished chords should be a breeze for you. Go back to the C major chord we had you build in the last paragraph. To turn this C Major chord into a C Minor chord, simply move your middle finger from an E down to an Eb. All Minor chords are built off of a formula of the root- a minor 3rd (which is just three half steps away from the root)- and a Perfect 5th. Try building Minor chords at various ... Read More

Singing Scales: 4 Scales Every Singer Should Know

...reaching the end of the scale in tune. Take the time to analyze the scale before singing it by recognizing its pattern or sequence—is the chosen scale made up a mix of whole steps and half steps? Do I know what a whole step and a half step sound like by themselves? Is the chosen scale symmetrical, meaning that it’s built ONLY on half steps or whole steps? If learning a scale on a vowel rather than singing solfège syllables, try adding a consonant before the vowel for every pitch in the beginning (“d” and “t” both work great). The ... Read More

Principles of Basic Rock Drum Beats, Part 2

...vary the pattern of the snare drum. I’ll begin with one of the simplest and most common ways this is done, which is to simply strike the snare on all four beats. Here are a couple of common examples, with typical bass drum patterns:     Slightly more elaborately:     Both of these rock drum beats were quite common, particularly in the rock and roll of the sixties, and remain commonly used (with many variations possible, of course) whenever a driving or ‘stomping’ kind of feel is desired- Think of the intro to Roy Orbison’s ‘Pretty Woman’, or the tag at the end of the chorus ...

How To Write a Pop Song

...Despite what you’ve heard, Pop music isn’t just songs from boy bands and teen idols. Pop music, or popular music, is a term that encompasses music from an indescribably huge swath of genres, styles, and time periods. Everything from Beach House to The Beach Boys, Kanye to The Kinks, and Hank Williams to Hinder is considered to be some form of Pop music. Songwriters new to the game often ask themselves how to write a Pop song, but a better question to ask is how to write a successful song. We’ll get to that in a minute.   What Defines a Pop Song ...

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm.
