    Kevin Hays Workshop June 2015

    Kevin will be conducting a workshop for pianists and other instrumentalists interested in developing their harmony, line playing, and general improvisational skills on Sunday June 28, 2015 in NYC from 3:00-6:00pm.

    These are small, intimate classes with an opportunity to play, ask questions, problem solve, and discuss whatever issues students wish to bring forward.

    Topics will include:

    • Harmonic development on standards and originals
    • Voice leading through progressions and in soloing (applicable to all instruments)
    • Rhythm and phrasing – ‘Demystifying Swing’
    • Creating new voicings spontaneously
    • Melodic and inventive line playing – breaking free of patterns and ‘licks’
    • Solving technical problems
    • The art of building a solo

    These workshops fill up quickly. Registration and a non-refundable payment are required. Register here: http://kevinhaysworkshop2015.ezregister.com

    Email info@kevinhays.com for more information. 

    “Kevin Hays is a true original. Everything he plays has a deep intelligence and swing.”
    – Brad Mehldau

    “This workshop is really great. Kevin’s ability to balance the presentation of musical concepts with personal demonstration and hands-on coaching was perfect. It allowed for the session to have a private lesson feel, but with the advantages of group input only possible in the context of a larger master class. I learned a lot – when’s the next one?”
    – Gary Versace (Maria Schneider, John Scofield, John Abercrombie, Al Foster)
