What are Piano Freestyles?

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.

Why I make Piano Freestyle videos

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.

Please share with your friends on social media!

Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud etc. and I'll see you there! =)

Thank you for your support.

Grace and Peace!
Taurus M. James
