It's cool ! To give a lesson to student from Ethiopia, I don't need Skype; he just comes to my classroom to play "What's New" and "Well, You Needn't ."

Dave, you recommend to play a lot of improvisation separately with left hand?I came across the fact that the improvisational thinking of each hand is somewhat different from the other; and not just for technical reasons.

Lh alone improv is something you can practice if you want to specifically want to develop the improv your ability to blow in the LH alone..otherwise you can do octave improv..LH line improv is cool, done rarely..

IMO, transferring the leader’s role to the left hand helps later to activate its role within chord voices, which makes the texture much more diverse.
