Diversify your piano playing and teaching skills
in a live online classes with a master improvisation teacher.

 

For me, jazz is not so much a style as it is an approach to making music that involves reading and improvising over specific rhythmic feels within a given harmonic context. The creative concepts I teach can be applied to many styles including, pop, rock, contemporary worship, swing, latin, bluegrass, even classical. - Bradley

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.

Testimonials

- Lynette (NV)
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)
