Love-Song-Secrets

How much guessing, cringing, and sighing happens when you go to play your favorite jazz love song on the piano?

Every day students sit down to play jazz love songs because of the intimacy, mystery and intrigue that they present.

They quickly  stop after about 5 minutes when they realize they’re actually HARDER than faster tunes.

No why is that?

How many times have you sat down at the piano to play your favorite jazz love song only to stare at the page and have absolutely no clue where to start?

If you’re brave enough to attempt an arrangement it’s usually filled with multiple cringe worthy moments, lots of hesitation, large amounts of doubt, embarrassment and feelings that you’re not good enough.

How do I know?

Because I’ve been there…A LOT!

If you’re like myself, and 99% of all jazz piano students there is something that draws us into the jazz love song.

The textures and atmospheres it produces immediately sends us to a melancholy place that usually produces a long sigh and inner soul reflection.

A place where we imagine ourselves alone at a bar, with a scotch, thinking about the good times that used to be.

This allure is what makes us long to express our dark passenger that we all have inside of us through these types of songs.

Heartbreak, love, desire, passion, intimacy, all come out when we’re able to play these songs with perfection.

But how?

That’s the question I asked for a LONGGG time.

In this course I dive deep into teaching you the secrets, the components, the strategy that will allow you to play your favorite love song with CONFIDENCE.

No longer wondering if you’re going to feel inadequate after you’re done playing.

The education I teach in this course will allow you to reap the soulful benefits of love songs for years to come without worry.

Which means that the sooner you put these methods and strategies into practice in your playing, the sooner you’ll start seeing your love song performance perfected!

What Our Members Are Saying

Jazz Piano School Is Different

Yes there are other jazz piano websites and education on the internet, but Jazz Piano School is unique because it was specifically built to solve a common problem among jazz students. That problem is lack of structured, organized, and step-by-step jazz education that provides us with clear details and practice exercises so we know exactly what to do in order to get better and accomplish our dream. 

We’ve wasted 15 years, jumping around youtube videos, switching teachers, guessing, doubting, feeling frustrated, embarrassed, insecure, and crappy because of the way jazz education is taught. 

In other words, we’ve been in the trenches so you don’t have to! Our mission is to provide you with the most comprehensive, systematic, easy to follow education and courses so you can quickly and efficiently apply what you’re learning and start seeing results immediately! If this sounds appealing then you welcome! You’ve found your home. 🙂
