“Martan Mann’s video series is the super-impressive unveiling of a mysterious, multi-layered subject: how to play jazz piano. Step by step, he demonstrates each aspect, building in sequence from the simplest foundation to the most sophisticated level of playing, making this one of the most thoroughly thought-out approaches to jazz study. Students of all levels will benefit, and it shouldn’t only be pianists who use this--Mann’s wisdom will apply to any instrument.”
“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.”
“Martan is a great musician whose deep love of music comes through in everything he does. You can learn a lot from this Mann!”
Steve Wilson Music Professor, Cabrillo College
“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.”
Diane Glazer Music Educator, Music for Minors, San Francisco Bay Area
“Martan Mann is one of the most exceptional jazz pianists I have ever worked with. His extreme skill levels are matched equally by his artistic freedom and playfulness. As a jazz vocalist, it's rare to find an accompanist with the ability to be fully supportive and simultaneously fully inspiring. If I were going to study piano again, Martan would be my first and only choice as a teacher.”
Pamela Polland Jazz Vocalist, Maui
“What a great opportunity for aspiring pianists ANYWHERE to study with a jazz master! This is like a guide to the vast “jazz piano universe” structured around today's technologies and tailored for a truly global classroom. As a performer and an educator, Martan Mann’s wealth of experience, formidable chops, prodigious skill and knowledge make this deeply fundamental, yet comprehensive course the “YES!” a serious player needs to achieve their musical goals and aspirations.”
Sandra Marlowe Jazz Vocalist/Prforming Artist/Educator, Morgan Hill, CA
“Martan, I have reviewed your new course and you should be proud. As a professional musician myself, I can tell you the loss I feel from not having a resource like this forty years when I was starting out. It is a humbling to admit how much I learned from just reviewing your course even though I have been at this for so many decades. As with so many things that you do in life, Martan, this is a real masterpiece.”
Rich Kelso Pianist, Photographer, Martan's student for 18 years
“If you want to get into jazz concept from the beginning and all the way to the deep end of the pool then I heartily recommend Martan Mann’s, Jazz Skills piano courses. I’ve been a professional pianist for over 40 years playing jazz, show tunes and teaching music. When I listen to Martan I am always inspired. His playing is rich with jazz harmonies, great lines and lots of groove. I like to believe I know a lot about playing piano after all these years but when I hear Martan play I always try to look over his shoulder and ask him a few questions about what he’s doing so I can add something new to my concept. The nice thing about his Jazz Skills course is he is explaining what he is doing for all jazz students.”
