Advanced Jazz Piano Concepts

Tighten up your playing with these high-level jazz piano concepts from Grammy award winner Geoffrey Keezer.

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

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)
