Expand your jazz repertoire with our beginner jazz standard course. We create simple but beautiful arrangements of the most famous and well-known standards.
After watching the Jazz Piano Foundations course, you will be familiar with 7th chords, the 251 progression, and how to read and interpret lead sheets. In this course we put all of this information together to create a number of beautiful solo jazz piano arrangements.
Learning a selection of jazz standards is key to developing our understanding of jazz harmony. Once you have completed this course you will be more confident and comfortable with common jazz chords and progressions.
In this lesson we are going to arrange the tune “The Nearness Of You” using simple voicings containing the roots, 3rds, and 7ths.
"Just Friends" is a great tune to improve your understanding of the 251 progression and the voice leading of b7ths dropping to 3rds.
The chord changes are relatively simple and there’s lots of 25s and 251s to get us familiar with these very common progressions.
In this lesson we create a beginner focused arrangement of the tune “When Sunny Gets Blue” using roots, 3rds, 7ths, and the melody.
This tune follows a standard 32 bar AABA form and there is also a 24 bar introduction which we are going to include in the arrangement.
In this lesson we create a beginner-focused arrangement of the tune “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.
In this lesson we create a beginner arrangement of the jazz piano classic “Body & Soul” using just roots, 3rds, and 7ths in our voicings.
My Funny Valentine is a difficult standard to learn. In this lesson we breakdown the complicated chord changes and build a solo arrangement.
The minor 251 progression in the final measures of the bridge is a nice place to add some altered voicings and upper structure triads.
