A good piano player is more than the sum of their parts.
It's more than just learning exercises and spouting out music theory jargon.
Becoming a good piano player involves becoming a 'Total Musician' who knows not just theory and scales...but how to use them to express the musical talent that we all have inside.
How do we get that talent out?
Well, I've spent the last 20+ years creating a program that does just that.
Welcome to the Jazzedge method.
Rhythm - Rhythm is essential for all musicians. Without a good, solid rhythm, your playing will sound dull and weak. The PianoWithWillie method focuses first on rhythm to provide you with a solid rhythmic foundation to build the rest of your practicing upon.
Technique - Technique lessons help your fingers to move faster and with more dexterity. After all, you need to not only know the notes to play, but how to execute them with ease and fluidity. Our technique lessons help you build your playing skill allowing you to express yourself more freely at the piano.
Reading - Many students prefer to learn the piano 'by ear.' However, ask any pianist who knows how to read music and they'll tell you that knowing how to read music is a definite asset to your piano playing. Our reading lessons help even the absolute beginner learn how to read music with ease.
Song - "The best part of learning to play the piano is playing the piano." says Willie. Our song lessons teach you songs in a variety of styles like Jazz, Blues, Rock, Funk, Latin and Gospel. Embedded with a lot of music theory, you'll learn songs while also learning how to learn other songs faster in the future.
Style - Our style lessons allow you to sink your teeth into a specific style of music. Our style lessons include lessons in Jazz, Blues, Rock, Funk, Latin and Gospel.
Concept - Concept lessons focus only on one aspect of piano playing. These lessons are especially helpful when you want to focus your practice on one specific area like chords, cocktail piano, re-harmonization, improvisation, etc.
With the largest selection of highest-quality piano lessons online, Jazzedge has become the place where serious students take their piano playing to their next level.
