Advanced Jazz Piano Concepts by Open Studio

Advanced Jazz Piano Concepts

Tighten up your playing with these high-level jazz piano concepts

Become the best pianist you know.

It's the little things that make a good musician great.

Sure, you understand the changes, you're "swinging,"  you know lots of scales and voicings but there's still something holding you back from reaching that next level: the details.

Just a few minor shifts to your musical focus can make a major difference in the quality of your playing. Modern jazz piano master Geoffrey Keezer shows you how.

What You'll Learn...

  • How to use dynamics to make a greater impact
  • Secrets to being a two-handed player
  • Arranging techniques for small groups
  • Shaping modern lines
  • Solo architecture

Living Notation

Our exclusive  Living Notation technology allows you to follow Geoffrey's playing and demonstrations in real time with moving, interactive notation.

Workbook Included

Includes downloadable PDF version of the comprehensive 116-page workbook that is the perfect supplement to the course. Spiral bound version is available for purchase.

Applause from our members

"I find Open Studio to be the most comprehensive online jazz study program out there. As a jazz pianist, I am working mostly with Peter and Keez, and there's simply nothing missing in their coverage & clarity, hitting all the important basics, concepts, substitutions and soloing improv, and explaining it in a way that's easy to 'get' and absorb."
R. Earthsong (USA)
"Keezer is the real deal - he's not only a great musician but he knows how to teach. He speaks directly to those of us who love music - and can hear, but don't quite understand the pathways to getting into playing."
Steve R. (USA)
