Piano Flow Summer Intensive 2022

Big News! Piano Flow Summer Intensive is coming back for a third summer! Join us in this creatively packed adventure to get you into the flow of free improvisation and composition.

We will focus on gorgeous Film Piano styles, as well as free flowing improvisation and composition.

Emphasis will be placed on rhythmic flow, creating chord progressions, and discovering intriguing patterns for the left hand. All of these tools are extremely important for improvisation, lead sheet playing, and composition.

No experience necessary!

You will leave the intensive with a full toolbox to unlock your creative potential at the piano and in life. You will see the piano in a whole new light and will feel motivated to sit down and explore your new sound worlds. You might just surprise yourself and leave with your very own composition!

A heavy emphasis will be placed on one of the most important of the musical elements- rhythm! Explore double time, hemiolas, syncopations, polyrhtyhms, and rhythmic dictation! Don’t fret. I’ll walk you through every step of the way!

We will have two to four sessions every week from 9:30-10:25 and/or 10:35-11:30am PST. June 27- July 13.

Monday, June 27. 9:30-10:25 and 10:35-11:30am PST

Wednesday, June 29. 9:30-10:25 and 10:35-11:30am PST

Here’s what Piano Flow-ers have to say:

“Piano Flow was a life-changing experience for me – because it has opened up so much in my compositional process. I’ve always wanted to be able to improvise, and now I can! Both for my own enjoyment and also for my composition. The tools I’ve learned from Paula have enabled me to create music faster and in a more enjoyable way.”

~ Jennifer Rosenfeld- composer

Previously, I would only ever want to play a very well prepared piece in front of others but now, I feel much more confident to make up my own or improvise whenever there is a piano around which is a very joyful feeling!

Paula is a brilliant, caring and generous leader into what for me is the great unknown: improvisation!


I’m loving and enjoying the class so much. My biggest takeaway is that I might enjoy composing! I really didn’t expect that to be the case. I wanted to learn to improvise more and be more comfortable but didn’t expect to enjoy composing so much.

I love Paula’s teaching style, organization of materials, and everlasting encouragements.
