Recommended Video: Improvising Your Own "Peaceful Song" On The Piano

Here's a video from online piano teacher Duane Shinn. Thanks to my student Miriam for showing me this one.

So ... what's Duane doing here? He's playing a simple theme in 4/4 time to open position chords in the left hand. But what I'd like you to notice here is what the right hand is doing. He's playing something called 'sixths' in the right along with octaves to really give this music a rich full sound.

Duane's not a 'new age' piano teacher but he included this video for those who enjoy this style. Thanks Duane!
