JAZZ AND BLUES KEYBOARD BITE SIZED LESSONS CHANNEL
About the course
I present new ideas for you to practise in different genres (blues, latin, jazz, funk, rock, etc.). This will help you develop your technique and spice up your playing. I am uploading a new video each Monday – Wednesday and Friday so make sure you come back to check the new lessons!
Hope you find my keyboard lessons inspiring!
The real life jazz and blues exercise ideas presented in this course will spice up your playing and will help you improve your improvisation skills.
In all videos I am performing the chops in different tempos. You will also be able to see all notes, chords, and scales diplayed clearly on a virtual piano keyboard. While it is primarily aimed at pianist-keyboard players, other instrumentalists can use it, too.
This will help you develop your technique and spice up your playing while presenting a few out of the box jazz improv tricks.
For each exercise you can download the PDF score in all keys. Practising in all keys over a period of time will help you improvise better, improve your technique, feel more comfortable and become a better musician overall.
