The Importance of Time and Rhythm

The piano is a central instrument in the history of classical, jazz and contemporary music.  But if you sight-read an Oscar Peterson transcription, you will still probably not sound like Oscar.  Most people spend too much time learning which notes to play (e.g. scales, chord tones), instead of how and when to play them.  Join Robi Botos, our featured headliner for the evening, as he discusses his performance style and how to integrate better time and rhythm into your own playing.

This Saturday afternoon workshop will include a lecture/demo component geared to complement the evening show.  In addition to the insights and examples of technique, participants have an opportunity to play along with the visiting professionals leading the workshops! The grand finale is a raffle for a one-hour Skype lesson with the leader of the workshop valued at $100!
