More Progressions with Triads
In this class we cover practical keyboard skills and ways to apply them in the context of grooves and songs. We’ll study common chord progressions, and use them to create keyboard parts in various styles. We’ll use synth sounds as well as acoustic and electric piano sounds for the class examples, and practice by playing along with beats and baselines.
Even those with no prior knowledge of music theory, or keyboard playing experience will be able to benefit. You’ll come away from the class with a broad range of exercises for developing your skills, and tools for creating keyboard parts for your own songs.
