Piano Trad Accompaniment - where to go now
I’ve looked all over the internet for months and go through phases of trying videos etc that are supposed to help, but it hasn’t done me much good.
I’m based in Galway (17) and have been playing trad piano for 2/3 years (Grade 8 piano done) and am a bit lost as to what to do. Basically, I’ve played in groups where I’m given accompaniment and told what to play - perfect. I can do that very very well (most probably could). The problem is that I want to go to a few sessions or just play with friends but for that I need to know how to improv accompaniment.
Does anybody know of teachers in Galway (city or west Galway) that teach trad piano? I can’t seem to do it on my own - just how to improvise accompaniment with something more than a very boring and stationary accompaniment. I feel like I’m at a bit of a wall now and can either keep going as I am and not improve or just go and try and find help - many teach instruments for melody, but piano accompaniment is seldom found!!
Any help would really be great.
Go raibh maith agaibh.
