If you’re new to our PDF Practice Plans section, here’s a short video which gives guidance on how to structure our practice sessions for rapid progress and development.
Below you can find a list of the practice plans that are currently available, more will be created and added to the list below.

Our Left Hand Voicings Course introduces the concept of rootless harmony. When playing jazz piano, we can voice chords without the root to achieve different textures in our voicings.

Our Altered Harmony Course introduces the concept of chord alterations. We can add b9s, #9s, #11s, and #5s/b13s to change the colour and flavour of our voicings and progressions. Download the practice plan here:
