Start improvising jazz piano
This online course follows the course Learn Jazz Piano: I. Begin with the Blues from Goldsmiths, University of London. It’s ideal if you can already play the piano and scales, and have a basic ability to read music.
You’ll learn more about the blues and jazz standards and explore in more depth the nature of improvisation.
You’ll learn the basics by watching an overhead video of the keyboard — so you can try for yourself at home — and by playing along to pre-recorded bass and drum tracks.
This course is ideal for any interested pianist, but may be of particular interest to university or college piano students studying music.
We recommend you complete the previous course Learn Jazz Piano: I. Begin with the Blues before you begin this one.
You’ll need to have access to a piano or keyboard, and have a computer, tablet or smart phone set up next to it.
