Piano Jazz - Theory and Improvisation

by Steven Rudolph

The musical art form Jazz is one of the most wonderful contributions from the American experience to the world's musicians.  In jazz, every voice has the opportunity to express their creative nature - an authentically democratic environment that enables originality. Music is a language with a universal tongue and jazz studies train musicians to converse freely in the moment with players from all nations. This course on piano jazz will increase your skills as an improviser, accompanist, and composer.
