Intro to Standards

Learn classic jazz tunes!

Ever wonder which tunes are best-suited to someone just getting into jazz? In this class, you’ll play selections from my handpicked list of must-know “starter” standards while learning essential elements of jazz and improvisation.

What tunes will I learn?

Selections for this class may include Blue Skies, Fly Me to the Moon (Sinatra), In the Mood (Glenn Miller), It Don’t Mean a Thing (Ellington), Minor Swing (Django Reinhardt), Summertime (Gershwin), St. Louis Blues (W.C. Handy), and The Preacher (Horace Silver). Actual titles and number of tunes may vary.

Is this the right class for me?

  • If you just completed the That’s Jazz 101 course, this is the logical next step to getting newly learned creative concepts to really sink in by applying them to classic jazz tunes.

  • If you’re new to online group jazz piano classes, here’s your chance to acquire foundational improvisation skills in a unique and friendly learning community.

What ability level is expected?

Recommended for late beginner through early-intermediate pianists and music teachers interested in the pedagogy of teaching creativity. (Options are included in each assignment to accommodate a range of ability levels.) No prior experience with improvising is required but a basic knowledge of triads and 7th chords is helpful.

Play that funky music!

Learn to combine intensely rhythmic riffs and bass lines with extended jazz chords on classic Jazz-Rock tunes.

What is Funk?

What tunes will I learn?
Selections for this class may include Funky Beat (Bradley Sowash), Just the Two of Us (Grover Washington), Chameleon, Watermelon Man (Herbie Hancock), Superstition, and/or I Wish (Stevie Wonder). Actual titles and number of tunes may vary.

Is this the right class for me?

Unbelievable experience filled with everything I hoped to get and so much more! And I love that I can use all of this and keep “digging deeper”. The processing is such a journey. My mind has been blown! Thank you Bradley!
— Lynnette (NV)
 - Tonya (OH)
I began lessons with you because I wanted to be able to pour out everything, to express it all, within the safety of the keyboard and the music I love. I would be remiss in not telling you that I have actually realized that dream, and am very grateful to you.
— Tonya (OH)
