At Jazz Piano School, we believe that one of the key elements of learning the piano is to be able to perform. Have you been taking piano lessons for quite some time and yet still unable to play a complete song, much less play in front of an audience? Do you feel that the songs you play from score always sound different or just don’t have the same feel as the way you have heard it on air before? Are you tired of using the same run-of-the-mill left-hand chord patterns for every pop song you play? Have you tried learning jazz theories and techniques from books, videos or instructors but still don’t know how to apply them in your playing?
Daniel finally loses it after cleaning Miyagi’s car for the umpteenth time – and who can blame the poor kid; Mr.
This idea – that learning an ability different from, but related to, another ability – is directly applicable to the arts. As a pianist with a classical background, I had a similar experience as Steve when I started playing jazz in college (though my similarities to the 300-pound, 6’5 football player end there). Being familiar with all the modes will make your improvising sound more interesting, coherent, and fluid.

You can use Piano Jazz Music Wallpaper as a Desktop Background, on your Tablet or your Smartphone device for free. At Jazz Piano School, we believe that learning music helps to slow down one's pace and calms one's unresting mind. Over the years, we have groomed many students from various piano or music background into confident and outstanding performers on stage.
Our students, young and old, range from total beginners to others who have completed ABRSM classical piano grade 8 or beyond.
Miyagi must be at least 150, and shouldn’t be driving anyway – but lo and behold, it turns out the menial chores he was doing indirectly helped him become a karate master.


The stereotype of a football player learning dance to improve his agility actually happens all the time, and not just in high school. The crossing over of related skills meant that not only did my classical background help with jazz, but my newfound jazz knowledge helped a huge amount with my classical playing.
It’s easy to write them off, especially early on when their applicability to the actual music isn’t clear. Improvising over a chord progression essentially entails determining which set of notes can be played over which changes (to name a few: Dorian over min7, Mixolydian over dom7, Locrian over halfdiminished). The more I practiced them, the more I was able to recognize them in classical pieces I was playing. Being able to recognize these patterns in other contexts makes pieces easier to learn, and plus, it’s fascinating to understand a composer’s harmonic choices. Many great jazz pianists are talented classical players as well, as they recognize that the ability to employ techniques from both skill sets will make one a better jazz and classical player.

More importantly, we believe in delivering our lessons in an engaging manner which will be able to motivate and build on our students' love for music.
Our students' concert performances are the best testimonials of our methodology in piano teaching. But for the first several weeks of training, he makes a frustrated Daniel do nothing but the same chores around the house, over and over again. The physical motions of those tasks were the same as those of various kung fu moves, and so by learning those abilities that crossed over from karate to cleaning, he improved his skill at both art forms. Steelers nose tackle Steve McLendon takes weekly ballet classes, as they improve lower body strength, as well as agility and flexibility. Modes make one familiar with tonalities beyond simply major and minor, and being able to recognize that in a classical piece (or any piece) will enhance your understanding of the music. Drilling progressions in various voicings made me better able to hear and recognize those patterns not only in jazz, but in classical music as well.

With a common love for the piano, here are our performers for the 2014 annual concert at Esplanade Recital Studio. He’s not alone, either; the benefit of learning ballet has directly applicable results and is thus appealing to other players.
Instead of just doing major and minor, practice going through the modes in all twelve keys.
Furthermore, practicing modes requires committing to your muscle memory more patterns than the usual major and minor, and this can be immensely helpful when learning music that strays beyond those scales.
Understanding what a piece is doing harmonically can be a huge help with memorization and proper phrasing, among other things. When playing a piece – any piece – being able to play competently is one thing, and truly understanding it backwards and forwards is another.
Start with Ionian (that’s your classic major scale), then do all the other modes for each key (Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, Locrian). Knowing the progression of a piece enhances your understanding of it, and thus your ability to play it well. I urge new jazz students to not forget their classical roots, and instead apply their skills to their classical repertoire. You can either do all the modes within one key, moving up the scale, or do all the modes starting on the same note. And from a compositional standpoint, understanding a composer’s use of harmony can be a huge aid in writing your own music. In the same way that jazz can help with classical playing, a knowledge of classical music can be enormously helpful while playing jazz.
