In this course you’ll study pop and jazz keyboards both to improve your playing in those styles and at the same time get to the heart of what makes the music tick, its chords, scales, keys, melodies and more, – simply put, all the things that make up its Harmony.

Learn and Play Like a Working Pop or Jazz Musician
Learning to play keyboards can be an end in itself, but is also a great way to understand how music works, an aim of this course.
