I’m so excited to finally be able to share my Woodshed article in the Keyboard School Section of the September 2015 Issue of DownBeat Magazine!! I wrote about using language as a tool for composing and improvising. I hope you enjoy the article and share it with your friends and students.

Here is a link to access the Digital Edition:

“CAILI O’DOHERTY/Padme: Abandon your preconceived notions before cracking the shrink wrap here. This fair colleen with India thoughts is actually an award winning jazz tyro whose debut plays wisely and winningly well beyond her young years. Coming out of the gate like American Pharoah at the Belmont, she takes the lead, keeps the lead and finishes the race wondering when it’s going to begin. If piano playing had thoroughbreds, you’d be listening to one here. This is a fine example of a fearless, young voice who found the sweet spot where her way and the right way merge as one well before a flashpoint on the horizon.”
