My newest announcement is that I’ve set up a new YouTube Channel called Quickie JazzThought. This presents free videos which give deep musical thoughts in a very easily understandable way. I’ve also upgraded my JazzThought Website with lots of new features. Check it out to view blog posts, videos, jazz quotes and much more. I’m also posting new “Morning Musings”. These are my piano improvisations on some of my favorite tunes.
I’ve just uploaded my first Quickie JazzThought video: “Connecting V7 – I”. This video gives two accessible exercises which develops a connection to this powerful resolution. I hope you will visit this video and give me your valuable feedback. I appreciate it also if you would subscribe to the channel. Watch for new free videos soon.
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 is my latest JAZZ MASTERCLASS: Step-by-Step individual course.
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.”
Have a great day . . .
