Classical Pianist Tackles Jazz – Leila Viss

viss_leila-3465_14ret_cropMy friend and teaching colleague, Leila Viss blogs about topics related to teaching piano at 88 Piano Keys.  Since taking online lessons with me, she has begun a new series from her perspective as an adult student.  She plans to track her progress as she learn to add jazz chops to her already impressive skill set as a classically trained pianist.  She hopes it will inspire others to realize that anyone can learn to improvise and that despite  the poo-pooing of music purists, it really is acceptable (and fun even — gasp!) to dabble in improvisation and popular styles without compromising one’s training.
