Pianist Dave Longo

Let Your “Voic”ing Be Heard

Hello and welcome, friend…

ProProach is an online program that resulted from a 6-month effort to create something unique for aspiring creative pianists. My incentive for creating it can be rather simply stated: I wanted to share my passion for the art of playing piano chord voicings with fellow pianists who are looking for an easy way to understand both the mind set of pro piano stylists (often jazz players) and how they actually incorporate their knowledge of jazz piano chord voicings into standard songs.

This Is For You If…

Who is likely to appreciate this program and gain benefit from it? The program is for you and will do a world of good for you if:

1) you are already familiar with playing some favorite standard songs on the piano

2) you know how to play these songs using basic 7th chords on the piano

3) you would love to learn how to spice these tunes up as you take those 7th chords and turn them into “pro chords” you’ve heard the pros play but were never quite able to figure out how they do it

If these all ring true for you, I can totally relate to where you are coming from. You see, this described me exactly. I played many of those standard tunes like Erroll Garner’s Misty, Harold Arlen’s & Yip Harburg’s Over The Rainbow, Duke Ellington’s Take The A Train, and so many more for years and years, getting by with them but never quite being able to putting them across with the kind of harmonic flair I heard coming from so many of the great players.

I was fortunate to be able to experience a turnaround in my understanding of piano chord voicings by connecting with the kind of people who could really help… and, of course, listening to lots of recordings.


My First Discovery Of Voicings

I didn’t even know what a chord voicing was until my saxophone teacher gave me a wake up call during one of my lessons. He would accompany me by playing piano as I was trying to improvise on my tenor. Being a pianist myself, my attention was always on what he was playing.

At the time, I thought I knew everything there was to know about chords but this guy was playing stuff that mesmerized me. So, during a playing break, I asked him, “What are those chords you’re playing?”

He replied, “Voicings.”

That was it. It was not only the first time I heard the word but it was the door that opened to a whole new world of curiosity and investigation that has since never stopped. Suddenly, I realized that what I knew about playing chords on the piano was small in comparison to what I needed to know. This all seemed like magic to me and I had to know how to create some of this magic, too. So, I ventured on as I did what was necessary to learn what I could. Since then, it’s been a journey that’s been rewarding to say the least.

We Are One

So, friend, I soon realized that lots of pianists have been in the same boat as me. They are intrigued by those pro sounds they hear without knowing how to create them on their own. Usually, these individuals are not in a position where they are willing to take months or years of lessons. Lots of them are not pro players but, rather, hobbyists who just want to have fun realizing their piano playing potential while entertaining themselves as well as friends.

Will You Let Me Help?

My enthusiasm for this wonderful art form led me to creating ProProach which is essentially A Pro’s Approach To Playing Piano Chords. Since it’s creation, it has assisted pros including cocktail players as well as “living room” pianists who don’t necessary play professionally but aspire to explore their potential for piano creativity for fun. I consider it a personal privilege to have been instrumental in helping them.

I would love to help you, too.

Special Ingredient

I feel that’s it is relevant to share something. Even though I was always curious about what the particular chord structures a pro happened to be playing, I was always aware of the fact that the way a pro player thinks is what leads him or her to making the choices they do. So, I figured that only if I could get into how they think, my own personal choices would be more profound. To me, this makes all the difference. That is why you’ll get a lot of that from me thoughout this program. Truly, it is my objective to have you thinking like a pro rather than simply imitating one.
