Start Improvising with Triad Pairs

Triads are the building block of jazz harmony, but with chord extensions and alterations galore we can lose sight of their value: triads are EASY!

You already know your triads, so why not use them?

Start using this straight-forward method for pairing triads to play modern jazz lines over any chord, mode, or tune.

Pianist Adam Maness guides you through exactly what to practice to bring these new colors to your improvisation.
