Welcome to my site.

 

Hi All. 
It’s July and  we are preparing for a long Fourth of July week in Boulder Creek.  I’m playing lots of excellent  gigs this month in different locations.  It’s a great time for me.

Thanks for coming to my website.  There is lots of information about my concerts, gigs, teaching activities, JazzSkills for Piano online jazz piano course, JAZZ MASTERCLASS: Step-by-Step (individual online lessons), blog posts and music below.  I’d love to see you at some of my gigs, concerts or lectures.  Please leave your email if you want to be notified of upcoming events.  Also, I always appreciate your questions, comments and suggestions.

We have updated and revamped the JazzSkills for Piano website. Check it out.  We are now offering a brand new introductory offer.

Exciting News!  New Course!
My newest jazz course is called: Pentatonics for Pianists.  This course is intended to help all pianists develop improvisational skills.  Pentatonic for Pianists (and other JAZZ MASTERCLASS: Step-by-Step courses) are available for purchase on Udemy.com.

Just received word that Martan Mann & Mankind is now available as a station on Pandora and on Spotify.  Hope you can check it out.

Here’s a nice comment from one of my Australian JazzSkills for Piano subscribers:

“Hi Martan ! Thank you for your course and video lessons. They have been extremely useful to me. I now use your approach when playing.  At the moment I’m playing each week in the State Library centre in Adelaide (South Australia) and it is certainly giving me new musical freedom.”
Stephen

Have a great day . . .

Martan :)
