PREMIER COURSE

Advanced Jazz Piano Arranging

Explore the enchanting world of "Advanced Jazz Piano Arranging" as we delve into the timeless gem Chelsea Bridge composed by Billy Strayhorn in 1941. Aptly described as an impressionistic jazz standard, this piece, initially recorded with Duke Ellington, has graced the repertoire of jazz legends like Joe Henderson and Tommy Flanagan.

In this course, we'll dissect the fundamental structure of the tune and craft a comprehensive solo piano arrangement in the classic jazz ballad style. Students will master techniques to enrich and amplify their arrangements, utilizing the entire piano to create depth and resonance. Additionally, we'll explore techniques for adding vibrant colors and dynamic fills, along with incorporating basic stride piano techniques. Join us as we embark on a journey to elevate your jazz piano arranging skills to new heights.
