These are the spinners I mentioned that I love. If you purchase them, make sure you remember to take off the blue protective covering. It IS supposed to be clear.

This is the MusiClock app that gets students improvising with ease! Highly recommend! (iOS only)

This is the Yamaha Visual Performer app that I showed as another example for students to improvise with. Unfortunately this one is no longer available in the App Store if you do not already own it. (Makes me really sad… contact Yamaha to let them know you want it back). However if you type in music visualizer, there are some other possibilities that pop up. Feel free to explore those!

In my presentation, I mentioned Jerald Simon’s Book, 100 Left Hand Patterns Every Piano Player Should Know. If you click the graphic below, it will take you to my review. Otherwise, you can go straight to Amazon and find it! (Amazon Affiliate)
