The vast majority of play-along CDs are geared towards playing a particular piece, in a particular style, almost always at a tempo that is too fast, and with far too many chord changes. All lot of students feel frustrated and left out by these recordings (and not just beginners!).
I‘ve taken my 35 years of teaching & accompanying experience to develop a comprehensive play-along CD that helps students to build their skills and cultivate their love for improvising. You'll find the right combination of simplicity and contrast in each piece, just like a private session with me...
24 Different Styles & Grooves
that will open-up
countless doors for you:
* The most comprehensive play-along CD
in the C major scale on the market
* Impeccably recorded on a
Yamaha C7 grand piano (not an electronic imitation)
with acoustic percussion (on selected tracks)
* Every track is introduced with tempo set-up
for easy use in any practicing situation
Vocalists > get comfortable with lots of different styles to fit your mood and whatever project you're taking on
Melodic Instrumentalists > apply different patterns, appreggiations, and chromatic approaches to these grooves
Pianists & Guitarists > expand your accompaniment abilities for creating great intros, endings, & segueways
Teachers > put your attention on your students rather than playing and coaching at the same time (I personally use this CD in my own teaching of improvisation, accompaniment, and analysis)
