In this Vintage Homespun video series you’ll study with a jazz piano virtuoso and jam with some of the best Jazz players! Andy LaVerne delves into the intricacies of jazz improvisation, chord voicings, rhythm comping and other techniques in the modern jazz styles developed by Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, Bill Evans and Andy himself.

Starting with a study of scales and modes, Andy teaches arrangements for pop standards, dissects chord changes, explores blues/jazz soloing and gives you essential improvising tools.

You can then use Andy's teachings in both solo or ensemble playing via a series of practice sessions, recorded with and without the piano, allowing you to play along with and be a part of, the group's creative process! Check it out today.

Very helpful introduction into modal scales!

This really helped me to get into playing the modal scales. I took away some exercises that I included in my daily practice. I am just a beginner of jazz piano and for that it was really helpful.
