  • October 24, 2011 Great Book for teaching Chords

    I LOVE this book. I teach piano to 4-12 year olds. Many of my older pupils wish to go down the Jazz path rather than classical, This book is great for learning chords. All chords are arranged around the E3 - E4 range. With only one chord to learn for...

    each key. Pretty quickly they then are adding/changing minor 3rds, 6ths, 7ths etc. Kids love the fact that with 10 weeks they can progress from the exercise pieces to the first piece in the book, Have You Met Miss Jones, and start to sound like a 'proper' jazz pianist. The book does require that an effort is put in but the results make the effort well worth while.

  • June 13, 2010 Really useful and user friendly to learn with

    Got back in piano after years. Needed to finally develop a solid theory foundation to advance. The Jazz Pianist explains chord voicings in a manner that is far better than other books yet is clear and enjoyable to learn. Explanations and tips address how and why chord types are applied...

    . Not dry like typical theory books but a lush eye and ear opening experience. A CD is also included to illustrate and play along with. What a wonderul learning experience it has been with The Jazz Pianist.
