Jazz Blues Piano
from 250.00

Recommended for those with some experience playing blues and who understand 7th, 9th, and 13th chords.

Learn how 1950’s artists including Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk transformed the basic blues into today’s “jazz blues” by adding more chords, walking bass lines and other creative concepts. Then delve into 1960’s blues innovations including new time signatures, minor keys, and funky grooves by the likes of Miles Davis, Oliver Nelson and Herbie Hancock.

Not sure in which class to enroll?
Intro to Blues Piano is for those with limited or no experience playing or teaching Blues. Jazz Blues Piano is for those who have a pretty good handle on Blues. Both courses will include cool bass lines, riffs, licks from all major Blues genres. But the Jazz Blues dips into thin air a bit. Get in touch if you need help deciding.

Tuition

Considering the high level of student/teacher interaction between classes, the way I teach online is completely different than the traditional "per lesson" cost-benefit analysis. It's much more like a college class with labs and office hours between lectures. It's also the only way many people can even find instruction in improvisation since jazz teachers are much rarer than traditional teachers.

Academic Year - $500 for 8 lessons spaced over approx. 16 weeks depending on how holidays fall on the calendar. 

Summer - $250 for 4 lessons spaced every other week.

Includes:

  • Interactive 75-minute classes with multi cameras, screen sharing, and educational software.

TonyaSouthwick Square.jpg
I began lessons with you because I wanted to be able to pour out everything, to express it all, within the safety of the keyboard and the music I love. I would be remiss in not telling you that I have actually realized that dream, and am very grateful to you.
— Tonya S. (OH)
