Have you been playing the piano for a while but wondering how to begin soloing? Maybe you’re comfortable with chords and some single notes – but don’t know how to translate those into creating your own riffs? This is the course for you! In “Solo Through the Modes on Piano,” I’ll take you through the first concepts needed to begin playing your own solos.

This course focuses on the mode shapes on the keys. The modes are seven unique shapes that all fit together to create one master shape that covers the tones in a key. The master shape can be used as a guide for knowing which notes fit into that key – and we can solo within that shape! 

We’re also able to solo within the seven individual shapes, using each one in a different context, as each one has their own “feel” or “vibe.” We’ll be covering the shapes themselves, but also how they fit together with one another, how they fit into a parent key, and the “feel” of each one.

Finally, knowing the shapes is a wonderful thing – but we’re going to learn how to use them! We’ll be covering two tools to turn our shapes into solos, called transition notes and chromatic notes.

We’ll also talk about how we can manipulate riffs we create to fit over chord changes in a progression.

(Note, this course comes with a full book on the modes on the piano. This book covers individual shapes, how modes relate to each other, and basic theory concepts. It is highly recommended that you download the PDF and use it in your learning).
