"I’ll Be Home For Christmas" Beginner Version
In this lesson we arrange the famous festive tune "I’ll Be Home For Christmas".
We have a more advanced arrangement of this tune later on in the course but if you are new to jazz piano first start with this lesson.
7th Chords & Voice Leading
In this lesson we create a full arrangement using 7th chords and we pay special attention to the voice leading of b7ths falling to 3rds in the 25 and 251 progressions.
If you’re new to jazz piano, this is an excellent tune to study and apply the 251 progression and how it is used in jazz standards.
Suspended Chords & Voicings
In this lesson we explore the foundation of suspended harmony. Sus chords are often used to delay the sense of resolution in a 251 progression and they are commonly found in the Christmas jazz repertoire.
You can find an in-depth study on Sus chords in the related lesson section below where we explore more advanced applications of this type of voicing.
