    Damn you are so good. That ballad was excellent. Maybe one day I will be able to play like that. Thanks for the video

    Amazing piano ballad, love it.

    Hey, I have a question but it’s out of topic. I’m into jazz piano lately, but now my keyboard is broken. Can you suggest any good keyboard that have sound and touch close to acoustic/grand piano but still have midi feature? Thank you in advance.

      Thanks for your comment. I would like to help you, but I’m not the right person to ask. Not using so much electric pianos. I used to play on a Yamaha P200. The p250 is supposed to be good. I’m sure someone else reading this have a better suggestion for you

    Nice lesson! I can’t wait take classes with you. I have been playing classical since I was 7 years old, and now I want to jump to jazz. To the lady that was asking about a good keyboard with excellent warm piano sounds, try Yamaha MOXF8.

    Dear Gjermund, your video tutorials are top of the line, and I like the touch at the end of ending the piece in major, which is also what JS Bach did when he wrote Chorales in a Minor key… Very thoughtful thing to do and bring to the attention!

      Hi, Caleb. Yes, it is available in the download section. (For Basic members of my jazz program, if you’re interested)
