Tom welcomes you and introduces you to simple theory and improvising in the Ionian Mode.
Tom now explores rhythmic ideas, clusters, fourth chords, and improvising in the Aeolian and Dorian modes for more colors and ideas.
Tom concludes the series by introducing the Lydian and Mixolydian modes, using various modes as part of one improvisation, and emphasizes again how seven modes are derived from the palette of one scale.
In these simplified video tutorials, piano master Tom Regis explores different Modes as one of the keys to unlocking the art of improvisation, and includes a bit of approachable theory that can be immediately put into practice!
The goal of these lessons is to show the forest through the trees, and allow the viewer who may have blocks when it comes to improvising, a way through. This series can also apply to those more experienced, presenting a different approach to using modes.
