The All Access Piano Jam gives you access to over 30 piano courses (and building) and videos from past LIVE JAM sessions. Courses include great pieces, warm-ups, piano technique lessons and practice tips, all ready and waiting for you.
When you are surrounded by great music, community and inspiration it can't help but rub off. Sounds like a dream? Let's JAM!
What is ALL ACCESS JAM?
This experience combines the wonderful world of Online Courses and Live Online Jam Sessions into a package called the All Access Piano JAM.
Your pass includes access to:
- ALL the courses up on Play Piano Chords Today at Teachable (over 20 and building) and any NEW courses posted... PLUS
- Two 1-hour, coached, Live Jam Sessions a month... PLUS
- A posted recording of the Jam Session to use as a practice buddy (or if you miss a session)...PLUS
- A monthly musical challenge
A Live Jam Session can be a new piece, a popular music topic, apps to help you practice, a guest artist and possibilities not yet thought of! We send you a Zoom link and any worksheets or downloads relevant to the Jam session.
At the Zoom session, we meet as a group at our pianos with open discussions and lots of piano playing.
The dream is to inspire you to play more, be curious, ask and answer questions and move you along your musical path.
Some of you have piano teachers and some of you don't. All levels are welcome. The classes are presented like a yoga class, each musical task is demonstrated at an easier, intermediate and more advanced level.
We hope to see you at the JAM!
