Jazz piano for the rest of us.
How many times have you opened a jazz book only to be instantly overwhelmed with crazy-hard advanced concepts? The logical conclusion is that the genre is either too hard for mere mortals or involves some kind of mysterious ability that only gifted people possess. Not true! It only takes about 10% talent. The other 90% is stuff anyone can learn with the right tools and individual coaching, but that other stuff is hard to find. Let me show you the sophisticated tunes, jazz chords, creative concepts, and lesser-known techniques used by jazz piano pros.
