**NEW** Jazz Piano Accompaniment

Everything you need to know about jazz to play great accompaniments for yourself and your students!

Now more than ever, singers are pulled towards becoming fluid and confident on the piano. As a performing jazz singer and pianist, I have had the great pleasure of teaching a great many wonderful singers to accompany themselves on piano. This course is clear, concise and will have you accompanying yourself and your students quickly and easily.

In this course, I am going to take you through the exact steps that I have taken a great many singers through! I will be taking you step-by-step through the protocol that I have developed over the course of nearly 20 years of teaching. This protocol has been tested by teaching hundreds of students of varying levels, and has helped singers, voice teachers and choral conductors get some jazz piano chops together.

What does this course cover?

  • How to read a lead sheet
  • How to play a variety of chord qualities in 12 keys
  • How to interpret jazz rhythm – back beat, swing feel and phrasing
  • How to walk a bass line
  • How to comp (playing chords in a rhythmic manner)
  • How to play voicings (choosing different chord tones and extensions to create a different harmonic landscape)
  • How to play a Ballad, a Bossa Nova and other Latin styles

You will be supported with video lessons for every detail of the course, with a close up shot at the keyboard. In addition, there are over a hundred pages of meticulously notated materials that will guide you every step of the way. You will also receive support from a private Facebook group and have access to YouTube playlists that provide dozens of examples of the material that we are working on.

It's thorough, it's fun and most importantly, this material has been developed over 20 years of instruction. It works!
