Stage 2 - Laying The Foundation

About:

You have a very solid foundation and a frame…now it’s time to get to the good stuff! But very IMPORTANT: make sure you have the first two stages down cold or else everything from here on out will not work for you. We dive much deeper into isolation of your jazz voicings, bass lines, two hand voicing strategies, solo piano methods, and bebop improvisation language with the use of approach notes. Ladies and gentlemen…this is where things really start to pick up and get juicy.
