Course Introduction

Adult Intermediate Jazz Piano Lessons are suitable for grade 3-5 level. This 12-week evening course offers adults the opportunity to develop Jazz piano skills from an existing basic knowledge.

Taught through small group classes, this intensive immersion in jazz piano will help pianists build upon foundation skills and technique in a collaborative and encouraging environment.

The teacher will focus on building chords, reading chord charts, elementary improvisation, creating melodies and ensemble skills. 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. Motivated students are encouraged to re-apply for Part 2, continuing their development in the Spring/Summer term.

Prerequisites

  • Students must be 18+
  • Beginner level piano experience
