Jazz Piano Class with Vlad Girshevich

Taught online through Zoom’s user-friendly conferencing program

How do you approach playing the piano and integrating complicated concepts in a simple, intuitive way?

You know what dominant seventh chords are and you’re familiar with more complex alterations such as diminished and augmented chords, but how do use those concepts in a natural intuitive way? Vlad Girshevich is here to help. This semester’s piano class will focus on taking complex jazz concepts and focusing on making them intuitive extensions of your playing. If you want to stop calculating what to play and just play, this class is for you.

VLAD GIRSHEVICH is originally from Uzbekistan and by age seven he had already taught himself to play pop songs with both hands! He spent eleven blistering years studying classical music at the Uspenski School of Music. After Uspenski, Vlad spent two years at the Tashkent State Conservatory, and then in the mid-1990s, his family emigrated to the United States. While playing in Aspen, Herbie Hancock heard Vlad and invited him to participate in the Thelonious Monk Institute at Jazz Aspen/Snowmass where he played with Jerry Gonzales, Arturo Sandoval, and legendary drummer Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez. Vlad is a staple of the Colorado live music scene. Today, Vlad plays in clubs, festivals, and other venues, locally and internationally. He has performed with Eddie Gomez, Bob Berg, Stanley Jordan, Ernie Watts, and David Kikoski just to name a few. In addition to his active playing career, Vlad teaches piano and music.
