About Us

"I started Jazz Piano School to deliver structured
and organized jazz piano education to students all
over the world.

I struggled to learn jazz piano for 15+ years. I never got
a solid learning path, and was guessing 90% of the time.

Jazz information is a messy swamp and I have dedicated my
entire life to delivering clear, specific, systems to any and
all students that want it so they don't have to waste years
of time and tons of money like I did.

I'm so happy you have stumbled on to my website. I highly
encourage you to explore our massive collection of free
jazz piano education including our podcast, blog,
lick of the week an more.

Please let us know if you need anything at any time. We're always
happy to help."

What Is Jazz Piano School?

You will quickly learn that Jazz Piano School is drastically unlike any other online jazz piano learning website. 

It is not a library of random courses from which you choose the topic that you think is best for you. (Although this is possible.)

It’s also not a collection of transcriptions, lead sheets, and “hip” videos that show you some cool licks or voicings.

Jazz Piano School was a 2 year creation. It is the most carefully crafted, precisely structured, jazz piano curriculum you will ever come across. It’s a road map, a path, a fully sequential step by step process that ensures you achieve your jazz piano dream. 

The Jazz Piano School education system designed by Brenden Lowe, utilizes his trademarked Theory Sequence process which contains the “Core 4” categories you need to start UNDERSTANDING jazz, so that you can play with complete freedom. 

While most jazz education websites, resources, and teachers simply “give you the fish”, by having you copy what they’re doing or read pre-arranged lead sheets, Jazz Piano School “teachers you HOW to fish” so you can play freely from your soul and express yourself how you’ve always imagined.
