Voicings: Your Ticket To Piano Mastery
Play Pro Piano Chords: Fun Learning Voicings
If you are giving consideration to learning how to play pro piano chords or voicings in a manner that has proven to be effective time and time again globally, please allow me to extend my heartfelt thanks. You see, the fact that you are here is a privilege for me. As I sit here and write this message, I am compelled to reflect back on my early days when I didn’t even know what a jazz piano voicing was.
I was just a teen taking a saxophone lesson in the basement of our home (my teacher made house calls). It was a joy to have him come every week since he was, to me, the hottest player in town. He would write out an original tune right there during the lesson, which usually took no more than about 10 minutes. Then he would comp the chords while I was required to play the head of the tune and then improvise over the chord changes.
Jazz Piano Voicings… Hahhhhhh?
Now, as of that time, I had already been playing piano for at least 5 years and had piano chords drilled into my head during all that time. So, I thought I had a decent handle on all the chords there were to know. I mean, I knew all my triads, major 7th chords, minor 7th chords, diminished 7th chords, dominant 7th chords, and more. But the chords he was comping with just didn’t look like anything I had previously learned… and they sounded awesome!
So, I asked him, “What are those chords you’re playing?”
“Voicings,” he replied.
That was the first time my ears ever experienced the word. Upon hearing it, I instantly realized that a fresh beginning was about to take place in my piano adventures without even knowing what he was talking about. Even though I was taking sax lessons at the time and had convinced myself that was going to be it for me, it really wasn’t. At the heart of it all, piano was still my thing.
So, he went on to tell me what was going on with those voicings – what they consisted of. I was mesmerized and knew that my new journey of exploration had just begun. So, I hit the books and studied voicings. Eventually, I also hooked up with another teacher that this guy recommended, which lead to my really understanding that I didn’t know much at all.
At a later point, I reflected on those times and had a passion for wanting to share what I had learned in a manner that just about anyone could understand. I didn’t want this piano voicing program to just appeal to people who were serious students of jazz playing or jazz theory. As a matter of fact, I wanted to make it so that theory was not a factor that got in the way for even the novice to want to pursue an avenue that truly has its rewards for any individual who has an appreciation for piano chord sounds, in general.
