Barry Harris Lesson Videos!

Hi Piano Groove Family!

As I mentioned in the Barry Harris Listening Workshop, I am starting a thread where we all can share videos of Barry Harris’ workshops.

As we all know, Barry Harris was one of the most prominent teachers in jazz, and videos of his teaching are a great source for studying. There are hundreds of videos that can be found for example on YouTube.

I’ll start sharing with the following video:

Barry Harris on ‘Stella By Starlight’

Looking forward hearing your thoughts, questions and comments!

Also, I encourage everyone to share their favourite Barry Harris videos!


Here’s a link to a number of videos of Harris as educator. There’s some good stuff here. Enjoy! :musical_keyboard:


As a follow-up:

Since I joined PianoGroove some years ago, I’ve been squirreling away useful bits and pieces, free stuff that I’ve come across surfing around the internet. A couple of years ago I listened to many of Barry Harris’s lessons and came across “Scale Practice Basics,” a guide based on his video workshops. Given Tuomo’s recent thread, I thought it might be useful. Enjoy! :musical_keyboard:
