Welcome to my YouTube series dedicated to helping you (and me!) become a better jazz pianist and improvisor. In these videos of lessons, exercises, patterns and transcriptions we will work on concepts that I've developed in my own practice routine. Dedicated weekly practice of these lessons will greatly improve your ability to listen and hear improvised jazz melodies.

Topics covered:
Voicings, Improvisation, Chromaticism, Pentatonics, Diminished, Scale Theory, Modalism, Learning Tunes, Rhythm, Re-Harmonizing, Sequencing, Ear Training, Singing, Transcription and much more.

I love modern jazz piano. I owe so much to great pianists like Bud Powell, Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, McCoy Tyner, Kenny Werner, Jean Michel Pilc, Aaron Parks, Brad Mehldau, and many more (most of which I've transcribed) for pushing the limits of the music. I'd like to give a little back to the community by making these educational jazz videos.

All lessons are free to view in full screen on Scribd.com and many are purchasable to download/print for a very small fee.
