Don O'Brien Teaches Giant Steps

Giant Steps is a rite of passage for the advancing jazz musician. Originally written and recorded by John Coltrane, this tune explores three seemingly unrelated key centers, at breakneck speed! Here, our very own piano teacher Don O’Brien discusses and performs some of his favorite strategies for navigating these monster changes. Enjoy!

Eastside Players Live at Eastside Music School

We’ve recently finished out our recording studio so that we can multi-track a live band using multiple recording rooms! To celebrate we did a facebook live session featuring the Eastside Players (our very own teachers). We had a multi-camera setup streaming live to Facebook using a fancy device called the Sling Studio. Excited to feature more musicians performing live in our studio!
