Course Introduction

Adult Beginner Jazz Piano Lessons are suitable for absolute beginners. This 10-week evening course offers adults the opportunity to develop jazz piano skills from scratch with expert RIAM Faculty.

Taught through small group classes, this intensive immersion in jazz piano will help beginners assimilate foundation skills and techniques in a collaborative and encouraging environment. Focussing on building chords, reading chord charts, elementary improvisation, creating melodies and ensemble skills, the repertoire includes Jazz standards and original music.

The final class will see participants making their Jazz debut, supported by a professional backing ensemble of piano, stand-up bass and saxophone to an invited audience of friends and family.
