Why Should I Join
Jazzedge Academy?

Overcoming the #1 problem with online lessons...

Jazzedge has been teaching students around the world online for over 2 decades. In that time a constant question from students has been "Where do I start" and "What do I do next?"

Jazzedge Academy's unique curriculum divides practice into Foundational and Fun'dational elements to make it easier for students to be effective with their practice time. This means you learn faster and retain more.
Jazzedge Practice Curriculum™

Your piano technique...through the roof!

If your piano technique stinks, so will your performance. Learning proper technique at the piano is more than just learning scales and chord patterns. It's also learning how to shape notes via dynamics, articulation and proper form.

The Jazzedge Practice Curriculum™ gives your piano technique a boost by giving you specific exercises that you complete at your own pace. 

Plus, as you finish each level of focus, you can submit for feedback from a Jazzedge teacher to make sure you're on track!

Jazzedge Practice Curriculum™ - A Game Changer

Years in the making, the Jazzedge Practice Curriculum™ is found exclusively only at Jazzedge Academy

This step-by-step piano exercises guide is designed to improve your piano technique, speed, fluidity, ear, theory, rhythm and more. As you complete keys in each focus, they turn green, giving you a birds-eye view of your progress. Once complete with a focus, you can submit a video for grade from a live teacher (read more about milestone submissions below).

Feedback on Your Playing From a Live Teacher

Jazzedge Academy students can receive milestone feedback directly from a live Jazzedge teacher.

Milestone videos can be submitted after you complete all 12 keys for a focus. For example, once you can play all 12 major scales in each hand, submit a quick video of you playing the scales for a pass or redo grade.

Submission is optional, however it's a great way to stay on track!

Frequently Asked Questions

No. The video-based lessons can be viewed on any internet-enabled device. Live sessions are held using the free Zoom software which also runs on any internet-enabled device. You do not need any special keyboard or piano to use Jazzedge Academy. Click here to learn how to use Zoom.

Yes! With Jazzedge Learning Paths™ you'll get a detailed list of lessons to practice and what to focus on in each lesson.

Premier members enjoy live Teacher "Check-ins"  with a Jazzedge teacher where they can ask questions and get feedback.

However, If you are an absolute beginner, meaning you don't know the notes of the keyboard, have never played a song or have no idea what a quarter-note means, you should look at our HomeSchoolPiano program which is perfect for absolute beginners.

If you've been playing for a few months you have all the skill you need to be successful here at Jazzedge Academy. My students range from beginners to pros. You'll find all the lessons you need here to "level up" your piano playing.

At the top of every page in the site is a 'Help' link where you can find tutorial videos on how to use the site or contact us for further help.

In addition, every month Willie hosts 'Office Hours' which is a great opportunity to ask him questions directly about practice, music, the Academy and more.

Plus, our Student Community is another place where you can ask questions and get answers from fellow students.

Yes! Our special Jazzedge Academy video player lets you loop any section of the lesson and slow it down. You'll never miss a note with our virtual keyboard and all of the options you have with the video player!

Not at all. Jazzedge Academy has hundreds  (yes...hundreds) of lessons ranging from funk to rock, blues to latin, theory to ear training and even beginner classical piano lessons.

Over a dozen musical styles are covered in my lessons. Yet, you will notice that Jazzedge Academy skews toward the jazz style.

So, why Jazzedge? Well, when I started my online businesses in 2000...yes that long ago, I wanted to created a name that joined together my love for jazz and education. That became JazzED which eventually morphed into JazzEdge. We actually spelled it as JazzEDge for a while.

So Jazzedge Academy is not only for the 'elite' player. Nor is it only for jazz players. Jazzedge Academy takes the best of jazz, its creativity and improvisational spirit, to create an online learning experience like no other.

As one of my students likes to say "Your lessons don't just teach me a song, they teach me HOW to learn."

Our goal is for you to learn piano, not to be stuck in a program that doesn't work for you.

While Jazzedge Academy is an incredible resource for anyone who wants to learn the piano, we understand it might not be right for every student.
