Have you always wanted to learn how to play jazz piano?
Have you longed to discover the secrets of jazz harmonies and improvisation?
Are you immensely frustrated by trying to learn jazz by yourself out of a book?
Understanding the intricacies of creating jazz chords/lines and playing them successfully on the piano requires expert piano instruction.
Most adults coming from a classical piano background, struggle to learn jazz as it requires a lot of commitment especially in the early stages of learning jazz.
Jazz is also based on swing rhythm, with a strong beat on two and four where classical music has a strong beat on one and three. The two styles are in a sense diametrically opposed. Obviously they also share similarities.
Jazz harmony is primarily based on the cycle of fourths. Having a firm grasp of the chord progression: ‘I VII IV III VI II V I’ is a must!
The possibilities of jazz chords and improvisation are definitely limitless. Therefore learning to play jazz piano will bring endless joy to your life.
