Week 4: Improvise Like Debussy & Ravel
Welcome to the third week of "Imagination on the Piano: Improvising Classically with George Ko"!
This is the thread for posting the submissions and assignments for the fourth week. Watch the fourth Livestream to learn more about the Week Three Assignments!
Debussy, Ravel, Chopin. We love these composers because they play with color. Color is what creates all those shimmering and luscious textures that transform the piano from a percussion instrument into a magical soundscape. This week we’ll discover how we can improvise and play with color.
Week Four Assignment
Record yourself improvising using the color techniques we went over in the live stream. Try using the F-E-D chord progression we talked about in the first session. Upload, and share with the community.
Thank you George for your inspirational session on improvising. Your clarity is beautiful. You are so encouraging about broadening our horizons! I loved that you finished your 4th session with 'it's about technique'. It is for that reason that I did not submit any videos. It's about me not you... but I'll be back and so will you, hopefully! I'm working on it, very diligently. Really loved your teaching! See you back on TB!
