Jazz Scales

Like in all styles of music, scales can play a vital role in jazz. Especially while you're learning keyboard harmony, improvisation, and jazz theory.

It's always a good idea to learn the different chords and scales that go together. When, I was a student at the Berklee College of Music we used to call that chord scale relationships.

The good news is that we have a variety of lessons that can help you start understanding the important relationship between jazz scales and jazz harmony.

For example you can check out our lesson on the lydian mode and the melodic minor scale.

Learn Jazz Standards

Learning jazz tunes is a huge part of becoming great at playing jazz. There is a million things you can learn by studying the classic jazz songs. Things like harmonic structure, great melodies, song form, beautiful reharmonization etc.

Additionally, if you want to get jazz gigs  it's critical that you build a jazz repertoire and you learn famous jazz standards.

We have a gigantic collection of jazz piano arrangements inside our Premium Jazz Membership course that is the best jazz piano course available online.

We also have several free samples of songs that you can get started learning.

For example, you can check out this Summertime easy jazz piano lesson, this Stella By Starlight chords tutorial and this powerful rearrangement and All The Things You Are lesson.

One of our best reviewed lessons is also our Straight No Chaser jazz piano tutorial. If you love Thelonious Monk, great jazz syncopation, rootless voicings, shell voicings, and the tritone substitution, then I think you'll have a lot of fun with that lesson.

Jazz Improvisation

At it's core, jazz is a style of music built on improvisation. That's why it's critical that you practice your jazz improvisation skills on every tune you learn.

That means you'll want to study and practice concepts like bebop licks, pentatonic scale piano exercises, blues piano licks, and lots more concepts.

Studying well constructed jazz licks and learning how to build great jazz lines is an excellent thing you can do to start building some of your own ideas. Just like in most things in life it's a great idea to study and model people who are truly successful.

That's why in our Jazz Masters Method DVD we break down and study the improvisation vocabulary of 9 legendary jazz piano masters. The goal of the program is to show you how to turn 1 lick into 1 million licks.

Jazz Studies

Here at Freejazzlessons.com we have a huge admiration for the legendary jazz piano players who've come before us. If you want to learn jazz piano on a very high level its' critical that you study jazz masters.

Legends like Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Art Tatum, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Diana Krall, Brad Mehldau, McCoy Tyner, Oscar Peterson, and other greats have paved the way for us what we can do today.

By studying the legendary players they provide a pathway for your to build your own voice as a jazz musician. You can start with the paths that they've built but then add your own unique voice and spin to this amazing art form.

That's why we've featured many of these players in our jazz piano lessons available on the site.

For example you can check out this lesson on Oscar Peterson chords, McCoy Tyner dorian chords. Those 2 guys are monsters and great pianists to study.

If you want to learn some great bebop vocabulary I'd also recommend you check out this Charlie Parker lick lesson.

2 of my favorite piano players of all time are Herbie Hancock and Sonny Clark. Very different jazz pianists but both totally swinging and brilliant players.

So, make sure you check out this lesson on Herbie Hancock chords, this Sonny Clark jazz piano transcription, and this Miles Davis lick.
