Are you making this Jazz Piano Mistake?
When I started learning jazz piano, I tried to do it all on my own...
I wasted months of valuable time searching the internet...
Picked up a few good tips here and there, but overall - it didn't get me anywhere.
I still lacked confidence, and my playing sounded BLAND...
Despite having all the passion in the world - I had nothing to show for it...
No one even knew that I loved Jazz piano so much...
I couldn't get my playing to match what I wanted it to sound like.
What was I doing wrong?
I wasn't learning step-by-step.
I was watching random videos from random teachers, and there was no structure...
After months of going it alone I still hadn't cracked the code...
It looked like my 'Jazz piano days' were coming to an end and I was about to give up...
Then I Tried Something Different...
Finally I found a Jazz piano teacher who was teaching in a nearby town...
I managed to book a lesson and made the one-hour bus ride to his house...
Within 5 minutes of stting down at the piano for my first lesson - I knew this was EXACTLY what I had been missing...
A qualified Jazz piano teacher who could teach me step-by-step, from the ground up...
I got answers to my questions, and we filled in the gaps to my Jazz theory knowledge...
The Results were Obvious
Within a short time, I noticed people would gather around the piano whenever I played...
Whether it was before music class, or at a friend's house...
If I started to play something, there'd be 4 or 5 people who would gather around to watch...
(That NEVER used to happen!)
People would clap after I played, and give compliments...
Parents of friend's would insist that I play their piano whenever I visited them...
And all of this changed within a short period of time - in as little as 4 months of step-by-step lessons...
Fast-forward to today...
I have now TRULY reached my Jazz piano goals and enjoyed countless public performances...
I studied music for undergrad and postgrad...
And I got to play, compose, and conduct for my college big band...
Having a passion for Jazz piano wasn't enough...
I still needed a teacher who could put it all together for me and teach me in the right order...
If it wasn't for my step by step lessons, I would never have achieved any of this.

What Are Students Saying?
Before you start the Jazz Tutorial courses I recommend you have:
5+ years piano-playing experience - so that you’re familiar with the instrument and can focus on learning Jazz.
Basic music theory - you're familiar with major scales, minor scales, major chords, and minor chords. Basic knowledge of the 12 keys will be helpful.
Reading music recommended (treble clef only) - Most of my lessons DO NOT require you to read music. However, to play jazz songs from a real book you'll need to read treble clef.
If you're not sure you meet these requirements - you can try the courses and decide for yourself. You have my money-back guarantee.
