Welcome to Jazz Piano Class

mus054

In the Jazz Piano Class at Laney College, students learn the fundamentals of how modern Jazz pianists play chords and improvise melodies. The class is aimed at beginning and intermediate piano students. Beginning students must have at least a rudimentary understanding of the piano keyboard (one semester of Beginning Piano, Music 38, is recommended). Jazz Theory is discussed along the way- including: chord symbols, Jazz voicings, ii-v-I chord progressions, and Jazz scales. Instructor John Gove, is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and an award winning arranger.
