All New Surprises await you for June at

June 2011  Newsletter

Late Spring Greetings,

It’s June! The month that splits the year in half, and soon the days imperceptibly begin to shorten.  But we won’t even notice.   Paul and I noticed that no one commented on We’re Off to see the Wizard, and wondered if anyone began to tackle it yet?

 AND… Once again, I’d like to thank everyone who sent in a donation to – the outpouring was truly sensational, the largest response ever! So again, thank you all from my whole heart.

 Well then…as a result we are able to continue to offer new video.  I thought you’d enjoy something different before we get back to another run of seminars, so this is really a special treat.  Video clips from Ted Greene accompanying Cathy Segal-Garcia at Rocco’s in 1999.  This was a very genial, easygoing occasion as they charmingly brought these songs to life.

 Here is what else is in store for your learning adventure. I have included 2 pages from Ted’s Application of Harmonic Concepts File.  The Harmony lesson material this month includes an extra sheet from me as to make clear what Ted has written under the grids. 


 Harmony: Warm Harmonization of Diatonic Major Scale Melodies – Pg.1    Warm Harmonization of Melodies with b7 – Pg.2

 Tune: Something – Ted’s arrangement and Paul’s compilation and detailed breakdown

 Comping: Our Love Is Here To Stay

 As always I do hope there are many enjoyments and benefits from all we share.

Pleasant summer days to you all,

Barbara Franklin
