Richard W. Smith has been playing for so long that he has forgotten how young he was when he started but it was around six years old! He possesses a love for and ability to play a wide variety of musical styles including black gospel, jazz, blues, contemporary gospel, southern gospel, classical, and Latin style.
He has been teaching piano lessons for many years to people of all ages. This is why you will find our courses easy and simple to understand, learn, and follow.
This course teaches how jazz chords and chording works and how we apply jazz chords and concepts to Gospel and Pentecostal music.
This course teaches how jazz voicings (totally different from chords!) work and how we use them to re harmonize, accent, hear and play the melody (and of course how they apply to Gospel and Pentecostal music).
This course teaches jazz improvisation (soloing, fills and runs using scales, modes, chromatic and diatonic concepts as well as other jazz techniques) and how we use it "tastefully" in Gospel and Pentecostal music.
