Learning jazz piano blog

This learning jazz piano blog is the companion to my main site Learn Jazz Piano Online, where you can find my online jazz piano lessons dedicated to learning jazz piano. Each lesson comprises of a 30 minute online video, backing tracks, sheet music and a quiz.

The site you are now on replaces my old ‘Learn Jazz Piano’ forum. So, once again, I can answer your questions and we can discuss all things related to my online video lessons and eBooks Learn Jazz Piano.

I will also be writing short articles and keeping you up to date with new jazz piano videos.

  1. Nice to see the forum is back, I hope to see lots of discussion which is very useful to beginners like me. Good luck and keep up the great work Paul.

  2. Thanks for posting this article. I’m decidedly frustrated with struggling to search out germane and sound commentary on this matter. Everybody now goes to the very far extremes to either drive home their viewpoint that either: everyone else in the planet is wrong, or two that everyone but them does not really understand the situation. Many thanks for your concise, relevant insight. Adauga Anunturi Gratuite Botosani

    1. Thanks for that. Yes, you are so right. There is no right or wrong way. In the end we are all trying to make great music. Some can do it just by instinct but it can be useful to set up some guidelines. Modes, scales and extensions all have their place but it’s madness to put all the emphasis on just one way of approaching improvisation.

  3. I do believe all the ideas you have presented on your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for novices. May you please extend them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

  4. Hi Paul.
    Enjoying your lessons on how to solo – thanks.
    I have a question please about what to play over diminished chords. To my ear a harmonic minor scale sounds good over a diminished chord. So for example G harmonic minor over C dim chord, or A harmonic minor over D dim chord. Maybe you’ve covered this and I’ve missed it, but would you agree that it’s an option ? Many thanks Graham

    1. Hi Graham
      Yes, your option certainly works. My go-to scale for a diminished chord is the diminished scale, which goes tone/semitone alternately. So, over a C diminished chord, the C diminished scale goes:
      C, D, Eb, F, Gb, Ab, A, B.
      Best wishes,
