What Is Jazz Skills?

This is NOT the normal stuff in jazz books and tutorials and it will finally get you sounding authentic!
The lessons are mostly bite-sized videos that are not overwhelming but are instead easier to digest. My teaching methods are based on over 20 years of teaching jazz, my studies with great jazz pianists, but most importantly an understanding of what my students are going through with their learning, and finding ways to ensure that they improve. There is no shortage of books and tutorials online but here, we are focussed on getting results for students. 

Jazz Skills is a membership subscription site for pianists and other instrumentalists of all abilities.

I have created hundreds of high-quality video lessons and other amazing learning tools for jazz beginners to professional musicians, teachers, and composers.

Jazz Skills is far different and more effective than other methods you may have tried for learning jazz piano and jazz improvisation. Students here have an extremely high success rate and can ask me questions about anything they may need to.

Games which can be played as flash cards, scatter, test mode or space race! These are a lot of fun and a great way to learn when you’re not at the piano

What Students Think About Jazz Skills

"I’ve been a subscriber for around a month now, and just wanted to take the time to say thank you so much for this site. For the last couple of years I have been going through lots of online jazz sites and I have learnt more in the last month than I think I have since I started subscribing to other sites. You explain things so well (I can now look at any lead sheet and justify why every chord is there – for eg) and the movement stuff is amazing and exactly what I had missing – it’s really opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities. Thank you again!"
