Anyone with basic keyboard skills can dig right in and begin learning jazz right away. From the major scale and basic triad theory all the way through to 7th chords, pentatonic scales, and modulating chord progressions, this book covers it all and features a full etude or tune demonstrating every new concept introduced. Beginning Jazz Keyboard breaks the age-old tradition of dry and confusing jazz books to provide a step-by-step, enjoyable method for learning to play jazz. The companion DVD features video lessons and mp3 audio demonstrations of the examples in the book. Both the video and audio can be streamed online or downloaded as well.
