40-Minute Speed Lesson by Mike Connors

 

Mike Connors will teach a simple jig and give some ideas for left hand accompaniment and ornament choices. Then he will share some left hand ideas for octaves, scales, boom chuck, tenths and syncopation. The session will be recorded so you may practice with Mike afterwards at your own pace!
