Ask Jordan

I travel occasionally and when I do I have no way to practice with a weighted 88 note keyboard, especially with good action as it would need to be light-weight and compact. Any ideas? (Two 44 note keyboards that could be joined together?) Thanks :)

Hello Jordan Rudess! Ive seen a video of you performing on the Korg Krome and overall I think it sounds good. Now im 15 and ive saved up a whole year so far to put towards this Krome. How different is it to your Kronos?

With scales, especially 8 note, do you have any tricks or advice to how to use a metronome to build your accuracy. I currently use “tempo” for iPad and find it very good, yet with high speeds always have trouble accenting the 1 in 7 note scales.

Hi Jordan, I'm Bryan, classically trained since 6 years old, could you recommend your fav classical pieces that you found helpful when you did classical? Also Have you played Grand Gallop Chromatique by Lizt? :-D

Hey Jordan! Just purchased a subscription to the JROC and I'm loving it so far!!! Great Job. I know this defeats the point of 'Jordans Riffs' but would you ever release your adaptations on riffs from say Awake or Images and Words?

Do you think pianists or musicians are at a musical disadvantage if they cannot sing? If they can’t, do you think it would be worth the time and effort to learn how to sing and play the piano?

I have noticed your MorphWiz app is refusing to load since I updated to ios11. Is there any chance that it may be updated in the future? Really like the app and how the sounds morph through preset changes!!

Hey there Jordan! I just got the plug for your Aristco page. Great tracks! Listen, I was wondering if you ever get around to playing solo shows at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock NY.

Hey Jordan I have an idea that would be appreciated by DT fans around the world that you guys could do: how about doing a DT band clinic? I mean like, explaining your process of composing, practicing, discipline, unisons etc? People would love that!

Hi Jordan, Just a very quick question out of all the sounds you have created over the years whether it be for Dream Theater, Liquid Tension, LMR or Solo work. Which one is your favourite one and the one that you enjoy using most? Josh

Hi, Jordan! Magne from Norway here! I loved how you broke down your sounds on the Keyboard Madness DVD. That was using the Kurzweil setup. Any chance we´re gonna see some more of that with the Kronos and with the amazing music made after that time?

Hey Jordan, first of all you are my biggest influence on piano. I can't wait to meet you on Nov 4th in Peoria. I have been working hard in your Circle of Inversions. Is there sheet music for that beautiful warm-up you just did on Facebook?

Hey Jordan how's it going? I would like to know, how are things with Dream Theater? What are you up to, or put simply, what are your plans. But also something that's been bugging me for years now: are you still using the OASYS at all? I miss it...

Hello Jordan, how are you? Thanks for all the material and the oportunity to ask about your work. I'd like to know if you could explain how to make the all layering, except piano, fade away with just one slider in Korg Kronos (like SFAM: Spirit..)Thx

hi, I frequently play jazz songs and when it comes to soloing using modes and acccompaining with chords I cannot get out of the monotony from a too simple improvisation style; any advices for spicing it up?

Hey Jordan, I've got a question about performing at live shows. I've recently come to realize how hard it is to avoid that stern face, lost in concentration while playing. Is there a way to practice a more outgoing expression while on stage?

Hi Jordan, I have just bought a Korg Kronos 2 and I was wondering if you have ever or have ever considered releasing sound patches for it since I know you use a Kronos too. Also, is there any tips for designing your own synth sound? Thank you

Hi Jordan, question comes from far away (Brazil). I`m having a hard time performing arpeggios with high jumps like when you have to pass your thumb under other fingers to reach it. What type of exercise would you recommend to improve that? Thank you!
