There are five types of seventh chords that make up the chord progressions to most tunes. Learn these and you have a solid foundation on which to begin your study of jazz piano.
The sixty chord drill streamlines the process of learning the chords by starting with the first, third, fifth and seventh notes of the major scale and then adjusting these notes by half step to form the remaining chord types through all twelve keys. In addition, you will learn how to read chord symbols and learn the chord changes to "It's Easy to Remember."

This six part course will discuss both forms of the major and minor ii-V-I progression voicings (major A and B and minor A and B forms) and show you how to voice lead them in tunes.
This three part course will build on your knowledge of rootless voicings with added tension by showing you how to apply rhythmic style to your left hand voicings in support of right hand melodies and improvised lines.
Using the chord changes to three representative tunes, "Blue Bossa," "Alice in Wonderland," and "Peace," students will learn the characteristics of each style and how to adapt their comping to suit the requirements of each rhythmic feel.
This is part three of a three part series of courses on left hand comping. It is intended that you will work through the courses in sequence from part 1 through 3.
