Jonny does an excellent job providing a very detailed site wide walkthrough. There is quite a lot of information and more options than you expect. A lot of thought went into the structure and user experience. The site is easy to navigate, extremely comprehensive and very user friendly.

Jazz and improvisation used to look like black magic to me. With this platform you learn new harmony concepts almost effortlessly, in a very fun and progressive way. I absolutely recommend it!

I cannot recommend PWJ enough. I have tried a bunch of online piano courses and this is the best -- especially for Jazz. And it is so reasonably priced that in my opinion it is a "no brainer".

Everyone should start with this course (link below), for two reasons:

1. Jonny explains how you should pick a Foundations track and a Styles track and stick to those two. There is so much here at PWJ that it's hard to know what to work on. This is good direction and it's working well for me.

2. It stresses the importance of repetition. In my opinion, the word "practice" is too vague a term. Repetition is much more specific and is really the most important concept in practice. Also, practicing in small chunks and slowly.

Learning piano takes a long time, but the structured and fun way that Jonny and the other teachers teach it makes the time very enjoyable and it passes quickly. In a year you can make a LOT pro progress.

BTW: In my opinion, learning jazz is a good way to go for all piano players (except possibly strictly classical) because it teaches you a lot of cool and useful theory such as beautiful chord voicings, progressions, improvisation, etc. So you may think you don't need to learn jazz, but in my opinion, it's good to do so. Also, jazz is very broad with many styles. Just as there are many forms of rock, there are many forms of jazz. I personally love modal and neo soul jazz; others may love bebob, ragtime or bossa nova. There is probably a style you will love to play.

The learning tracks are organized in such a way that you can either follow a linear prescribed path if you don’t know where to start, or detour to a particular area such as music style, genre or learn a particular song, if you know where you want to focus. I go back and forth to keep things interesting as my needs evolve and my whims arise.

Jonny’s style is easy to digest and to assimilate into your repertoire. For example I recently went through a lesson on accompaniment methods where he gives each method a particular name.

Naming the accompaniment methods is brilliant. I was doing some of these already but naming them helps me remember them better and also remember to not just use one pattern when playing a song. I used these in my band's concert the other night and it made the song I was playing much more fun!

Course: Modulation Essentials - How to Modulate a Song 1

This course is great for demystifying the concept of changing keys during a song. The fact that you can use the same concept no matter what key you're going from and to is awesome. It really comes down to the idea of leading into the new key by playing some other chords in that key before the start of the new phrase, similar to a cymbal swell giving a cue to an upcoming crash, or how the music or visuals of the next scene fade in before the scene starts. It softens what would otherwise be a jarring, sudden change.

Similar to all the other courses on PianoWithJonny, it takes a very step-by-step approach, ensuring there are no mysterious leaps in knowledge/skill where you’re left wondering if you skipped a page or a section of the course (an issue I’ve found with so many other courses/books in the past, not just in music), and Jonny always gives pointers to other courses in case you’re not up to speed with an important prerequisite skill or theoretical knowledge. I struggled for years (decades) trying to get a grasp on jazz, starting with a self-absorbed teacher when I was about 13, who just liked to show off with a flowery dance across the keyboard, which he expected me to somehow magically assimilate, then through multiple jazz books, including Mark Levine’s Jazz Piano Book, the latter bringing me a whole lot closer. But it wasn’t until I started watching Jonny’s videos on YouTube that things really started to click, and since subscribing to PianoWithJonny
I’ve been progressing by leaps and bounds. I really look forward to the lessons, sometimes completing nearly a whole course in one sitting! I’ve since got a subscription for my father as well and can’t recommend it enough

For someone to whom the latin rhythm does not come naturally, I made quite a progress by the end of the course and could play together with the backing track. It was easy to follow the course, step by step you get into the groove. It is amazing how seemingly effortlessly the instructors convey the material. Thanks Jonny and Yannick.

Blues Challenge 2
I have learned more with this course in 4 and half months than I have learned over several years. The techniques have stuck and will transfer to Jazz so learning blues first is a ABSOLUTE MUST, it focuses on technique and you won't regret it. But don't be fooled - it is rigorous, not for the faint hearted and requires determination and resilience. If you don't have that - dont go there. The eureka light goes on, when you've cracked an element that you thought you would never do, it becomes really enjoyable and inspiring to know that's when you know you can play the piano. Bear in mind there are many more keys to cover, it's only the beginning... I think I can see the base camp of Mount Everest, Thanks again Jonny.

As with the other courses on rootless voicings for major and minor chords, this lesson on dominant 7th chords takes you in a piecemeal approach, from A voicings to B voicings, and then to alternating A and B voicings. The short songs at the end of each lesson add a fun touch to what might otherwise be a not too fun travel around the circle of fifths with each voicing. John keeps you engaged, but don't hesitate to pause the lesson and spend several minutes really learning the numerous chord patterns. Thank you, John.

I really am a beginner to piano although I spent a few months trying to learn on my own. The foundation learning track quickly demonstrated and filled some fundamental gaps and I do feel ready to move forward with more confidence. Glad I came back to the start. It was a valuable time taken. I am very happy with my first experience of the PWJ beginner learning tracks. 🎹😎

This is a great course for a Jazz beginner with classical piano training - made it easy to pick up the jazz fundamental principles. I've been wondering all these times what the tricks were and now boom I can start to bang out some cocktail jazz chords. So much more to explore but can't thank you enough Jonny!

This course has given me so many tips on how to improve soloing. I tried to learn jazz piano a few years ago. (Having played classical for many years). I bought countless books, watched tons of videos etc etc, but I hadn’t found anything that worked for me until PWJ. Prior to PWJ, I didn’t really understand chord progressions, or guide tones, and relied on being a good sight reader, but as Jonny points out, the 2,5,1, is so important, almost a building block to everything else. I can now play a 2,5,1 in every single key, without thinking😊 (well, a little bit of thinking😆) The lessons are so clearly laid out. The exercises are really good fun to play and the great soloing examples have made a big difference, to my playing and understanding of ‘where to go’ in a solo I love the whole teaching method at PWJ.

The course starts you right at the very beginning, if that’s where you’re at.
For me, I have taken some piano training and am familiar with the treble and bass staffs.
I started at the beginning anyway.
The warm-up exercises and the practice pieces that get you playing hands together were what really caught my interest.
The training by video methodology is about as good as one could expect.
I am very encouraged to keep moving on in my journey.

I have played piano all my life and I thought I *knew* seventh chords, but I decided to take the the 7th Chord Foundations as a review, starting with major 7th chords. Well ... I learned so much from this first course! While I could have given you a textbook definition of "major 7th chord" before, the exercises really helped me to gain a much deeper understanding of how major sevenths work, look, and feel. I am so looking forward to delving into the dominant 7ths next!

Playing piano became boring to me after more than 10 years. Despite my experience, I didn't know how to play blues, jazz, or improvise, and it didn't amuse me anymore. But everything changed when I joined Piano With Johnny a couple of years ago. The progress I've made since then is unbelievable, and I'm having so much fun with it. I wish I had joined earlier.

Every person gets to a point in their journey, whatever that journey may be, where the uphill challenges get discouraging, sometimes even to the point of resignation.
For piano playing, Pianowithjonny provides a very supportive environment with no time to get stuck! There is just so much to do and to get involved in if you are passionate, ambitious or just curious. Even if you just want to hang in the back ground and observe... that's perfectly fine too. They make it clear and simple, and add just the amount of challenge needed to succeed in achieving goals assisting you step by step.
The opportunities are excellent; from live shows, to recitals, to question and answer sessions once a week with professional piano teachers.
I don't think they have missed out on anything, whether it be level or need, in helping improve one's piano skills.
Very satisfied with my choice to join the community.

Piano playing is the greatest gift I ever had and I have loved playing since I was young. People who heard me play thought that I was good but I know I still need to learn more. When I found PWJ my piano playing was enhanced. Johnny's piano tips made a big change in my style of playing. He offers a lot of great piano technics even for advanced piano players.

One more thing, PWJ is a very encouraging and appreciative piano community. Kudos to the PWJ Team!

Jonny reawakened my passion for piano at the age of 45, I hadn't played for 15 years and I was missing something important. I was very sad when I saw a piano and heard someone play it. I wanted blues and jazz! but had no idea who would teach me in a way that I understand and enjoy!
With Jonny I have found a teacher who teaches me how to play the piano like I always wanted to as a child! Free, improvising, soulful, passionate. I wanted to be on stage and overcome my fear...
It has come true! My first live gigs begin! Thanks to Jonny!!! now live my piano dream every day! Get a membership, you will have great benefit!
