Learn jazz piano for the fun of it
A love for music or an interest in jazz is all you need to start having fun playing. These lessons are designed to make practice and learning fun. THe whole piano experience should be joyful. A good teacher can stimulate your interest, be an inspiration for you playing, be strategic in teaching and give you techniques to make practice fun.
Learn jazz piano - just for the fun of it
Anyone can have fun while learning jazz piano, be it the blues, bossa-nova, be-bop or ballads.
An effective learning structure means that we can build on whatever skill, or lack thereof, you have to start with. An experienced teacher can guide you in a process which makes the coolness of jazz accessible to all.
You don’t have to be a wiz or an aspiring professional (if you are, check this link!). You don’t have to be putting in hours of practice every day. You don’t need any particular background to start exploring and having fun. You can learn, at your own pace, just for the joy of learning and the beauty of music.
Learn to play and play to learn.
Jazz inherently playful. Spontaneity and creativity are capabilities we all have and can learn to express through playing jazz.
The lessons may be quite different from traditional pedagogues. The theory and techniques of jazz are approached through playing tunes from the jazz repertoire - especially blues, contemporary and traditional jazz standards.
By structuring the way we work on each tune, students progress organically, gaining stylistic skills in reading chord charts, improvising, chord voicing and arranging. Right from the start, you can learn and enjoy playing great music.
For those who have the interest, jazz theory, harmony and composition are also taught as a way to deepen understanding of how jazz works. We take a broad approach to jazz styles and integrate whatever other genre interests students might have.
