Jazz Piano Rootless Voicings Structure 2 Practice

On to practice Round 2! We’ll be practicing structure 2 of our rootless voicings at 5 different tempos. Here we go!

Have you been trying to learn jazz piano with youtube videos, dvds, teachers but feel
like you’re still constantly guessing, can’t play any tunes without copying what someone else has played, and don’t know how to connect all the tid bits you’ve learned?

I went through the same thing but thankfully stumbled upon a learning system I created based on
proven language learning blocks.

The JPS System brings you through 4 main categories of learning,
Theory, Technique, Improvisation and Repertoire.

I’ll show you exactly how to utilize our popular system so
you can finally achieve jazz piano freedom: http://jazzpianoschool.com/lookinside
