Feel the Spirit


Perfect for church musicians! Learn to play and improvise quintessential African-American spirituals, and then explore contemporary and gospel styles to create your own arrangements.

Tunes may include Down by the Riverside, Go Down Moses, Just a Closer Walk with Thee, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, Wade in the Water (a la Ramsey Lewis) and even a few Christmas selections so you’ll be ready for the holiday season. As always, assignments include options to accommodate a range of ability levels.

This class is for you if:

  • Your piano ability level is intermediate or above.

  • You have a fundamental knowledge of chords and scales.

  • You’re a moderately experienced improviser.
