Tim is an experienced player and author and this course draws on his experience touring and recording with UK and US legends such as Otis Grand, Earl Green, Dana Gillespie, Larry Garner, Joe Louis Walker and many more. Tim composed all the pieces in this course except where otherwise indicated.

This first course is everything you need to get started improvising in Swing, Blues, Latin and Funk styles. It is aimed at players with some piano experience who wish to acquire the basic tools required to play and improvise in a jazz style and includes many unique features and resources to kick start your journey:

  • 19 PIECES spanning a range of styles, taking you in easy steps from one chord only, to tunes with three chords
  • BACKING TRACKS with bass and drums only, so you can practise easily by yourself
  • Interactive REPLAY SHEET MUSIC that scrolls video and audio and can be slowed down and looped
  • Downloadable AUDIO FILES for every piece, featuring further examples of improvised solos
  • Invaluable SUGGESTED LISTENING sections throughout the course focusing on tunes with one, two or three chords only

Many of the pieces and examples in this course are taken from Tim's best-selling book 'Beginning Jazz Piano - Part 1' that has helped tens of thousands of pianists. The book is not required to take the course but contains additional exercises and material for those wishing to go into even more depth.
