I feel like I learned more in Gregg's tutorial about jazz theory than in some of the semester-long college-level music courses that I'm taking. There was no "fluff", and the exercises at the end of the tutorial helped reinforce the concepts presented.
Very well done! The topics are really weel explained, with many examples and exercises. Every topic is very clear for the student and this course really helps a student to start his practice in jazz. Great Job!
This Jazz Theory class provided me with the most practical music playing exercises over any of the available theory classes so far. This is a great tool to use not only for piano playing, but with a MIDI controller such as Ableton Push. The course is easy to follow and the concepts are worth your time.
This course was just what I needed to begin to understand the language of Jazz. I cannot wait to dive into the next couple of chapters! Thank you so much.
This is a great set of tutes that covers all the basic definitions, history & fundamentals of jazz in a practical & fun style. Nice simple approach to scales/chords/methods for improvising...now to practice!
Great course for any music enthusiast!! Not only does it cover jazz theory, it also explains many different scales and musical patterns that can apply to any genre of music.
Excellent- well paced and building up of knowledge and skills. Good practice material and backing accompaniment track
Excellent course! I'm reminded of some of what I learned while playing jazz during college years, only none explained the theory behind what they were doing! Great to get an understanding of why certain solos had 'that sound'! Really like the half-whole diminished scale!
Last week I was researching jazz music because I had a sense I would learn some things about the music I've been making... Then this week you post a video about jazz theory… Yea sure that is creepy mind reading tactics macprovideo what the heck but I love it nonetheless! Keep em coming. I've learned more useful knowledge in a few months on this site than in 4 years of undergrad. Learn the way that makes you grow the fastest?!?! Say whaaaat?? Macprovideo should take over educating in every arena of knowledge! And thank you Gregg Fine for this fine video. Couldn't help it on that pun. 4 stars not my favorite but still very very useful knowledge.
