You Can Play Jazz Piano is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 3 .
Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Warren Bernhardt "Jazz Piano" course - like sitting next to a piano teacher Well worth watching straight through, then go through it again with the use of the pause button. Stop the video after each concept is presented, then explore that concept. Get a notebook and write down the concepts, then do some googling, youtube watching, etc to build on those concepts. You'll have an enriching learning experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Nice Pace, Good Info Not for the absolute beginner, but if you know some rudimentary theory, he explains concepts in a clear and concise way. I especially like the way he presents something specific, then offers the broader, more general idea behind it, along with suggestions for how to explore and practice on your own until it becomes fluid and fluent. Recommended.
