Alto Sax and Piano Freestyle Beat Video by Taurus M. James
Beatmaking tutorial - Piano Freestyles - How to Make Beats - Dilla Are You Listening
Watch TaurusBeats make Moody Instrumental Music using Propellerhead Reason, Akai MPD32 USB/MIDI hardware control surface and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard.
In this video, I'm just practicing - doing a lot of impromptu playing (improvisation) around with a smooth beat I made using Propellerhead Reason.
This post is about: piano freestyle, improvisation, ear training
Sometimes, my Moody Instrumental Music and sample flip beats lead me to do Piano Freestyles. Piano Freestyles are kind of like freestyle rapping over a beat, except I'm using the piano to come up with piano parts on the fly, (or "off the dome" - off the top of my head).
Piano Freestyles are a collection of my piano improvisation videos. I do Piano Freestyles in order to work on ear training and mechanics.
As a self-taught keyboard player, I hope to encourage you to do your best with what you currently have.
With these piano freestyle videos, I hope to inspire you on your beatmaking journey. No matter what your current limitations are. don't allow them to stop you from creating.
I do these piano freestyle videos as a way to practice ear training (playing piano by ear), while paying tribute to my favorite artists, who have inspired and influenced me in my music journey.

Grace and Peace!
