Ep 22: Kurt Young – Rock ‘n Roll Guitar to Jazz Piano

by | Apr 16, 2023 | Podcast | 0 comments

Kurt is a retired scientist and life-long guitarist. He has played mostly by ear. He came to me almost two years ago and wanted to learn to play the piano. Since he has played mostly by ear, he has good ears and has a good understanding of basic harmony. We’ve been working on reading music, as well as expanding his knowledge of harmony and improvisation. It’s so much fun to see people grow and develop.

If you want to learn how to play Jazz, but don’t know where to start, the KEYS TO JAZZ BOOTCAMP is for you!

This six week online course will introduce you to the important concepts you need to start making your own music.

We’ll cover topics like; how to play different grooves; swing, latin, funk, etc. Getting a good feel with rhythmic phrasing

and syncopation. Understanding harmony; chords and scales and how to use them to improvise and compose your own tunes.

Making your own melodies. And most importantly, how to learn by listening.

The course will feature weekly online meetings, and personalized instruction for each student.

Course begins June 3.
