Are You Making This Jazz Piano Mistake?

When I started learning jazz piano, I spent weeks and months searching the internet for advice...

I picked up some tips here and there. But there was no real difference to my playing. I still sounded like a beginner...

I lacked confidence in my playing and I knew there were huge gaps in my theory knowledge...

Nothing I learned was ever step-by-step. It was just random videos all out of order...

I was wasting huge amounts of time and my passion was going to waste...

Learning on my own could only take me so far and it was just a matter of time before I would have eventually given up.

Then I Tried Something Different...

Luckily for me, I eventually found an excellent jazz piano teacher who was available for lesssons...

The moment I sat down for my first lesson - all of the pain, frustration and overwhelm I had been experiencing instantly disappeared...

I finally started learning jazz piano step-by-step, in a sequence, from the ground-up...

I got answers to all of my questions, and the gaps in my knowledge were quickly filled...

My playing improved noticeably, following every lesson...

I stopped sounding 'bland', and people started to notice when I played, gathering around me at the piano...

Everything changed when I stopped trying to figure it all out on my own. I got to enjoy the LEARNING, while my teacher took care of the TEACHING.

After a short time of following my teacher's step-by-step lessons, I had reached my jazz piano goals and was set for life.

Where I Am Now

Fast forward to today, I now have a master's degree in music, and I've been playing jazz piano for over 15 years...

If it wasn't for my teacher who taught me jazz piano step-by-step, I would never have achieved my jazz piano goals. My passion would have slowly died out and I would have eventually given up.

Now that I realize just how lucky I was to find such a great jazz piano teacher, I want to make that same jazz piano education available to you...

Member Testimonials

Now let's hear what members are saying about the Jazz Tutorial courses:






Prerequisites

There's a few things I recommend you have before watching my jazz piano courses:

  • 5+ years piano-playing experience - so that you’re familiar with the instrument and can focus on learning new jazz theory.

  • Basic music theory knowledge - you're familiar with the major scale, minor scale, major chords, and minor chords. Basic knowledge of the 12 keys will also 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 will need to read treble clef.

If you're not sure you meet these requirements, I recommend that you try the courses and decide for yourself. If this training is too advanced, just email us and we will fully refund your purchase.

"What Will I learn?"

Here are just a few things you'll discover as you watch my jazz piano courses:

  • How to play jazz songs from a real book.

  • Chord symbols explained - get clarity on the many chord symbols of jazz, once and for all - 'Cm6', 'C13', 'C9', 'C7sus4', etc.

  • What to practice at each stage of your development (beginner, intermediate, advanced).

  • Improvisation techniques covered in detail: chord tone soloing, approach patterns, enclosures, 'playing out', emphasizing the changes, and more.

  • Add an authentic solo section to every song in your repertoire.

  • ii-V-Is explained (major, minor & variations) and the scales I play over each chord.

  • Essential left hand chord voicings that professionals use to create smooth voice leading.

  • Chord extensions explained - and my top 5 chord extensions to add sophistication to your sound.

  • Approach patterns explained - melodic shapes that you can use to create an authentic jazz piano solo.

  • Jazz scales explained: know which scale to play over any chord.

  • The 5 jazz scales that make up 90% of my playing.

  • 'The 12 Key Pattern': how I practice playing in all 12 keys.

Course Q+A

How many videos are there?
There's over 113 video lessons (17+ hours of concise video content) with new lessons still being added.

How many videos are in each course?
Roughly 20-25 videos per course. Most lessons are a concise 10-15 minutes.

Are these videos more detailed than your YouTube videos?
Yes - they're more detailed, they cover material that I've never talked about on YouTube, and most importantly - they're step by step, rather than just random topics.

Is there any live broadcast training?
No - all lessons are pre-recorded and edited (which makes them much more concise than a live broadcast). This allows you to watch the lessons at any time, and you won't have to worry about missing a live broadcast.

Does this course have printable material associated with the lessons?
Yes - there's lesson notes for each lesson (downloadable PDFs). There's also additional resources like my 'practice exercise ebook' for each course, audio downloads (including backing tracks for you to play to) and sheet music.

Do you provide the sheet music for the songs you cover - or do you have to purchase a Real book?
I don't provide sheet music to any jazz songs. I recommend you purchase a Real Book ($30) to accompany you through these courses, and your jazz piano learning / career.

Are the videos downloadable?
No, the videos are not downloadable - but you have 24/7 access to the member's area so you can watch the lessons at any time, and from any location (including watching on your smartphone). Each video comes with a PDF lesson summary which can be downloaded.

Do I get complete access to everything from day one - or do I have to stay subscribed as the courses are dripped out?
Yes - you get complete access to all of the courses as soon as you become a Member.

Do I need any other equipment?
I recommend all students buy a Real Book (roughly $30) to accompany watching the courses. This is so that you can apply what you learn to your real jazz songs after each lesson.

Can I pause and re-watch the videos?
Yes! The course videos are hosted with Vimeo - which has beautiful resolution. You can pause the videos, skip forward and back, re-watch as many times as you like - and you can even change the playback speed to double speed or half-speed.


Billing Q+A

Now let me answer your questions about payments and billing:

Will I get notified when my subscription is about to renew?
Yes. If you become a yearly member - you will get an email from me, several weeks before your subscription renews. This will give you plenty of time to review the courses and decide if you wish to continue - or cancel your membership.

I'm worried about forgetting to cancel my subscription - what happens if I'm accidentally billed?
Not a problem. I can refund any payment you make within 90 days. Just email me and I can reverse any unintended charge.

Which subscription is right for me - Monthly or Yearly?
If you're serious about achieving jazz piano success - then the Yearly option will give you the best results. You'll have the time that's needed to go through the courses and do the practice exercises.

Can I pay using PayPal?
Unfortunately not. The only payment I can accept is by bank card through the secure checkout page.

Can I pay by check?
Unfortunately not. The only payment I can accept is by bank card through the secure checkout page.

Is it safe for me to pay with my credit card on your website?
Yes. This website has an SSL certificate (which protects your personal information using encryption), and your payment is handled by Stripe's secure checkout (a service similar to PayPal), which is embedded on this website.

I live outside the US. Can you tell me what your pricing is in my home currency?
If you're outside the US, please use an online currency converter to see what your payment will be in your home currency.

Will I pay additional sales tax on my order?
No. Sales tax is already included in the price. You only pay today's price - and nothing more.

Is your pricing in US dollars or Australian dollars?
All pricing is shown in US dollars.


Prerequisites Q+A

I don’t read music - can I still join?
You can still join and learn from the courses. Most of the videos DO NOT require you to read music at all. And my 'reading music guideline' is mostly so that you can apply what you learn by playing songs from your real book.

How good at reading music do I need to be?
You only have to read treble clef to play from a real book (there's no bass clef in most real books).
If you don't read music yet - watch my quick video that shows you how to read music before you join: Click here

I don’t play piano - is this still for me?
The Jazz Tutorial courses are made primarily for jazz pianists. However, most lessons apply to all instruments (including my improvisation lessons, jazz theory lessons, and interval arithmetic lessons). Only the Chord Voicing Intensive course is piano specific.
So I still recommend the Jazz Tutorial courses to non-pianists. However, you must be familiar with the notes on the keyboard (as I teach through the piano). If piano is your second instrument, I recommend the Monthly Subscription.

I'm over 60 - can I still learn this?
My audience is full of people over 60! I have many students in their 80s, who remain incredibly sharp and have made great progress in jazz piano. I believe that having the time to immerse yourself in learning jazz has more impact than how old you are.

Should I watch the courses sitting at my computer - or can I watch them on my cell phone?
It's up to you! You can watch the lessons from any device - computer, cell phone, iPad. You can watch them while sitting at the piano, or away from the piano. You can login to your courses from any device - and watch them from any location (as long as you have wifi).

I still don't know if this is right for me - what should I do?
I would love for you to try the new courses and see for yourself. You have a 90 day money back guarantee for the yearly membership, so if for any reason it turns out not to be right for you - just email me and I'll refund your purchase. That's what my money back guarantee is there for!
