About Me

Are you a Classically trained Pianist trying to get into Jazz? Or just want to learn how to play, listen to and appreciate Jazz? If so, keep reading.

I believe it’s important to understand music as well as be able to play it. I started learning Classical Piano over two decades ago. And while if you put a sheet of music in front of me I could play it, I found I didn’t really understand music. I had questions like:
- What makes certain chords sound good together when played in a progression?
- How do I know what scales to use over a particular chord or song?
- Why can you use lots of different scales over the same chord?
- Why does ‘modern’ music sound so different and strange?
- How do you make a chord sound interesting and jazzy?
- How do you create a melody or a chord progression that sounds good?
- How do you know what to play when you’re improvising?

Learning to play and understand Jazz helped me answer all of these questions.

Jazz is a broad and complex genre of music and it’s often difficult to know where to start. I teach everything you need to know to play and understand and appreciate Jazz, including:
- How to improvise
- How to make your chords sound jazzy
- How to choose scales and create melodies
- How to reharmonise a song
- How to compose a song
- The Chord-Scale Theory
- Modal Jazz Theory
- And everything else you need to play and appreciate Jazz
