Jazz Piano School Ep. 119 – How Theory & Structure Lead To Freedom

Brenden Lowe5 Comments

I heard an amazing saying the military uses as a motto that goes like this…”Fast is slow and slow is fast.” If I had to sum up jazz piano in a similar way I would say, “Theory & Structure is Freedom, and Freedom Is Theory & Structure.” In this episode I show you why it’s so important to learn theory concepts in a sequential manner and how it will translate into true freedom of self expression in your playing. Enjoy!

    Hi Brenden,

    I have been on your site for sometime now I like how you teach.
    I have been playing the organ for over 40 yrs. by ear only,

    I would like to learn Jazz badly, I can’t read notes.
    I own a Piano and a Hammond B3.

    Is it possible for you to teach me jazz without reading notes?
    Do you teach by skype?

    Regards,

    Hey Michael,

    I don’t give Skype lessons. I would say it is definitely possible for you to learn jazz but most of the material we produce here at JPS does involved notation of some kind. Even though we do have a lot of members who watch the videos included in our membership and just practice the exercises we demonstrate to get better without reading.

    There is definitely hope!

    Best!
