I’m excited to announce the launch of our new syllabus pages.
You can find the syllabus index page here: https://www.pianogroove.com/syllabuses/
I have also added an option to the “Lessons” drop down menu called “Syllabus Index”:
This is just a temporary location. We have a new website header design coming shortly which will list our “Syllabuses” page in the top level navigation.
So What Are The Syllabus Pages?
As our teaching team expands we now have a new layer of organisation and structure to the lessons and courses.
Some syllabuses contain lessons and courses from multiple genres (Jazz, Blues, Brazillian) and also courses by multiple teachers. For example the “Improvisation Syllabus” contains courses from 5 teachers which gives our students a wide range of insights and perspectives.
We currently have 8 syllabus pages, here they are:
- The Beginner Jazz Syllabus
- The 251 Progression Syllabus
- The Vocal Accompaniment Syllabus
- The Hand Independence Syllabus
- The Chord Voicings Syllabus
- The Improvisation Syllabus
- The Brazilian Music Syllabus
- The Advanced Harmony Syllabus
As more teachers join us we will be adding and tweaking the syllabus pages.
Here’s some information and screenshots on how the syllabus pages work.
1) Syllabus Overview
This section provides a quick intro on the syllabus and bullet points the key goals:
2) Learning Path
This section shows a ‘birds eye view’ of the syllabus contents. It outlines the main milestones/checkpoints in step-by-step order so that students can see the topics and theory areas they will learn:
3a) Courses With Progress Tracking
Each syllabus then lists the courses that it contains and shows a progress bar so that we can track our progress through each course in the syllabus:
3b) Courses Dropdown Icon
If we click the chevron icon the course will expand to show the lessons it contains. We can click into each lesson individually, or use the green button to take us to the next lesson:
4) Teacher Section
This section shows the teacher, or teachers, that deliver the lessons and courses. In our Beginner Jazz Syllabus you can see it’s just myself listed there.
5) Syllabus Downloads
The downloads section lists all downloads from the syllabus in one convenient location. This includes theory documents, worksheets, practice planners, chord charts, lesson transcriptions, audio files, and midi files:
6) Related Forum Threads
The final section of each syllabus references relevant forum threads where you can find common Q&As and discussion related to the courses in the syllabus. Any forum threads that are relevant can be found here so students can click and join the discussion:
