Overview
Status: Available | Released: Apr 15th, 2010
Being a wizard doesn’t happen overnight; they don’t just wake up one morning and channel their their incredible creative magic (if only it was that easy). In reality there’s a whole process of achieving wizardry that happens behind the scenes. This process... this arcana, is the essential ingredient of achieving the throne of wizardry.  

In this tutorial, Keyboard Wizdom, Jordan delves into his video vault and shares with us the essential keyboard and synthesis techniques that have propelled him into the progressive rock spotlight as one of the worlds most highly acclaimed keyboard masters.

This tutorial reaches deep into Jordan's vast keyboard experience showing us pianistic treasures that were handed down to him by the piano maestros at the renown Juilliard school in New York City.  Jordan shares with us his constantly evolving approach to the synthesizer which he is always developing for Dream Theater. From technical exercises to warm-up routines, Jordan provides us with a unique, inside look at how he polishes his skills and prepares for the rigours of live performance.  Then he invites us inside his creative world showing us how he “dreams” up the pyrotechnic leads that span the Dream Theater catalog of unparalleled progressive rock.  

The side of Jordan Rudess that few people have the honour of knowing is: Jordan the teacher.  With his friendly, generous spirit he inspires us to work harder, to practice with intention and to perform to the best of our ability.  macProVideo welcomes Jordan to our growing family of A-List trainers with this first of many tutorials:  Jordan Rudess: Keyboard Wizdom.
