Very useful and interesting
Finally and for the first time I got a real advice how to work with leadsheets on piano, very systematic approach, great teacher Jonny, although it´s foundations it ´s encouraging and bringing new skills and already some fun when playing with backing track.
Very fun and informative.

This course was great for foundational skills. Now all I have to do is master it in all the other keys.... LOL Thank you for being such a great teacher.
Interesting, challenging and fun!
Great material for review of lead sheets, chords, progressions, inversions. Loved it!
Great for the Classically Impaired
I feel I got a great understanding in how improvisers use chords and progressions to play more creatively. I had a pretty good classical piano training 50 years ago. At that time I had no idea how jazz and blues players did their thing. Now my disability is being taken away!
