A Course for the Serious, Aspiring Jazz Pianist.
“Playing Piano has always been an avocation of mine. I love playing popular Jazz Standards as well as creating original music. What has helped me in my quest for self improvement, was my discovery of Martan Mann’s incredible array of piano videos that appeared on YouTube. What I learned from these videos opened up my eyes and ears to the kind of possibilities that would allow me to elevate my piano skills to a new level of professionalism that I could only previously hope for. It appears that Martan has now incorporated his videos into a comprehensive internet course called “JazzSkills for Piano” which is sure to be a Godsend for the serious, aspiring Jazz Pianist.”
I'm So Impressed with Martan . . .
"Martan has an amazing depth of knowledge about jazz. He shares that knowledge effectively and in a logical sequence with his students, inspiring them to reach their goals as improvisers and jazz musicians. It isn't always an easy journey but he never tires of finding new ways to bring each student along to the next level of expertise. I highly recommend this course."
