In many ways, the most difficult thing to do in music is to play a ballad. It challenges you to find your own voice. I will show you ways I use vibrato, ghost notes, subtone (breath tone) and dynamics in shaping a solo (also the importance of learning the lyrics, if there are any). I will illustrate by using songs from my catalogue, like “Smile,” “Straight To the Heart,” “The Dream” and “Lisa.”

Each class will be approximatively 2 hours long, led over Zoom with limited capcity. The first half will be me speaking and demonstrating. The second half, a Q&A.
