New Course Announcement!
Watching Elijah Fox’s Instagram channel, you’re likely to see something new everyday. From silky R&B tracks and spacey synth jams to old-timey stride piano covers and flowing improvisations, Elijah’s talent spans genres like jazz, fusion, hip-hop, indie rock, soul and beyond. Yet there’s a single unifying element that connects all the music he makes: “impressionism.”
For Elijah, that means striving to make every moment evoke powerful emotional reactions in his listener, and yet also remain open to pensive wandering.
In his new course for Soundfly, Elijah Fox: Impressionist Piano & Production, he takes us through the “impressionistic” music which has hypnotized fans around the world, been championed by artists like Yussef Dayes, Tom Misch, and Kiefer, and become the foundation for Drake & 21 Savage’s hit “Major Distribution.”
We’ll see how he uses a modular approach to practicing that ensures a fresh well of ideas always skitter across his fingers. We’ll pick up a variety of his philosophies and perspectives on modern harmony, and we’ll learn specific techniques for jamming, orchestrating, and composing (both for short form beats and larger works).
Along the way, you’re going to be challenged to up your skills on the piano — and build new tracks inspired by Elijah’s guidance. If you’re a pianist, or a producer with some background in piano, dive in to take your creativity to the next level.
“I’ve gained so much joy from playing the piano,” Elijah declares, “and I hope to inspire you to find some of that as well.”
We encourage you to skip around to the parts of the course that fit your interests most. Here’s what you can expect to learn in the course:
