By taking the class and practicing the ideas presented, the student will be able to expand on their chord knowledge and learn new voicing’s and harmonic movements that are derivative of the piano work of Ravel and Debussy.

In this lesson video, Mike shares his findings from exploring a wide variety of different chord voicing’s from the piano works of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.

The video breaks down sets of chord voicing’s that can be used for 4 different tonalities taking you through Major, Minor, Dominant 7 and Minor 7b5 chords. After that Mike demonstrates how to utilize these voicings together in a jazz context by demonstrating 18 different chord combinations that can be used for Major and Minor ii V I’s.

This is the ideal lesson video for any intermediate to advanced player that wants to further develop their chord repertoire and learn some new voicing’s that are sure to bring them outside of their comfort zone and expose them to new sounds and harmonic territories.
