Learning to play jazz is a huge subject just like classical.
Your postings will be interesting for everyone because not all of us find it easy to make the transition to jazz. I played a little sax but not enough to help me towards jazz. Welcome. Anything you can share about the transition will be much appreciated.
(Started this thread in adult beginners first and was adviced to move it here)
Right now I'm blasting through ABRSM jazz pieces grade 1
I am not sure of ABRSM but I think it is like the Royal College of Music etc.
It would be awesome of any pieces you are learning in jazz / ABRSM and post that information so I and others could go to our local music store and buy those jazz pieces and learn them.
I've started a soundcloud acount for this purpose
So here goes the first song:
music I can understand but clouds are where I get lost because it talks about facebook and I get lost where I am supposed to click.https://soundcloud.com/jakersprogress/bedford-square-blues-15-2
Feel free to comment.
And since the vibe I get here is that most people want to play classical.
Well, I will say that there seems to be lots of knowledgeable people in all areas of music/piano here, and a thread that people can understand as a beginner in jazz will do well.
I want to invite all beginners trying to play jazz or blues to make this their progress thread aswell!
So you know, vidoes are very difficult for beginners, but music that beginners can read/buy is like a gift from the heavens. Most of us always have enough coins to buy music "if only what to buy as a beginner in jazz piano". Thanks for listening.
