This week I had an amazing opportunity to spend three days with the group of extremely motivated church organists from all parts of Lithuania leading the course on harmony and improvisation.
During that time we basically covered more than a year worth of material about the foundations of harmony from the simple T-S and T-D progressions all the way to the inversions of D7 chord.
In addition, I also taught them how to improvise a piece based on choral, chant or hymn tune in ABA form.
In order to help the Lithuanian organists even more, I recorded everything on camera and will create a video course on harmony and improvisation.
It's amazing how technology of today enable people without any special computer skills like me to connect with others and help them reach their goals.
The only thing which is needed is to take the initiative and lead.
