Peter Martin is an acclaimed jazz pianist, composer, arranger and educator. He tours with four time Grammy award winner Dianne Reeves and three time Grammy award winner Christian McBride as well as with his trio comprising Rueben Rogers and Greg Hutchinson.

In this course, Peter teaches you 5 essential Jazz standards that every musician should know! Most musicians will regularly be asked to play these tunes at gigs and jam sessions throughout the world and Peter also touches on harmony, voicings and approaches to improvisation in the context of these tunes.

This course is great for advanced pianists and the insight also applies to musicians playing other instruments too!

"Peter is able to teach in a way that everyone can understand and he plays beautifully too, which is a bonus!" Kazuo S. @ Japan
