After perusing this list, I like the descriptions of some of what’s mentioned above, and I’m keeping this list for reference as I grow in my playing. Im a 50yo advanced beginner heading toward intermediate and loving exploring jazz and cocktail piano.

I also do have an in person teacher and he has added immensely on the intangibles that are hard to engage using an online course.

Love this site, thanks all!


I enjoyed reading about your piano experience. It looks like Piano Edge has a ton of valuable information. You have a great situation of online sources AND a “live teacher.” The best of both worlds! With that combination, you’ll be a solid intermediate player in no time. :-)

It may not be the best, but it got me up and running - 2 months in and I'm ready to move to another set of courses.

Here's the list I noted from this thread:


www.jazzpianoonline.com

Five Essential Seventh Chords

www.davefrankjazz.com

www.learnjazzpianoonline.com

artistworks.com/jazz-piano-lessons-george-whitty

www.openstudiojazz.com/piano

https://jazzedge.com/

https://pianowithjonny.com/

Jazzedge.com

jazzpianoschool.com

https://www.pianogroove.com/

https://jazztutorial.com/courses



What's the consensus these days?

Can we do a top 3?


I took a quick look at the udemy course you mention and I like how simple structured it looks like. Do you knows if they have follow up courses at udemy?

How have you all been liking jazz skills?

So far, so good.

For me .... it has given me new interest and direction.

My interest has been waning these past few years because I did not see myself attaining the ability to just sit down and play standards without memorizing what I intended to play.

His stuff is aimed at learning the jazz language so you can play as easily as you can talk .... once you have learned the language.

That is appealing to me.

Once again ..... there are no shortcuts. You have to do the work.

The site looks interesting. How does the www.jazzskills.com site compare to Willie Myette's offerings, jazzedge, learnjazzpiano.com, etc.?

Almost five years around here looking for a shortcut and there is no way I could find one :-(

Thank you Don.

It is very difficult to explain the differences but I can say this ....

On Willie's site (Jazzedge) you will find many examples of how to play things note for note with written notation provided also.

On Shan Verma's site (Jazzskills) you will find very little of that. It consists mostly of explanations (videos) of concepts and how you can go about harmonizing a chord progression or melody within the framework of the methods he is presenting.

Shan categorizes you as at a particular level of skills and tells you how you should approach a tune within that level.

He is not a fan of just memorizing how to play things. He does encourage playing tunes but only at your skill level.

Thanks @dmd I know shortcuts don’t exist. I learned that a while back. I agree that anything that sparks interest whether for a moment or long time is a win. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the course.

Greg Spero is a young professional jazz pianist who has been running a great YouTube channel called WeeklyPiano for about ten years. He has over 500 videos on there now. The channel is pitched at intermediate and advanced players. He has some great videos. So it's a great free resource. This is his biography: https://www.gregspero.com/bio

Here's a link to his YouTube WeeklyPiano channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/weeklypiano

His video most popular video "How to Become a Well Rounded Jazz Pianist (in 42 minutes)" is a great overview of the skills needed to be a decent player.


He has been improving the channel's production values. Here's a great example of his new style. "Playing Jazz With Good Time and Feel: Swing Demystified"

Has he just changed his name to Greg Spero? I’m assuming you’re saying he was a former student of yours
