I've taught consistently through my 20+ year career as a professional musician, and I do enjoy it greatly, especially when the student is really motivated as well. I'm always looking forward to sharing my knowledge of music.I study in Berklee College of Music USA and in KUNST univercitat in Graz Austria. I teach Jazz piano, jazz harmony, arranging, songwriting, improvisation, ear training, phrasing, rhythm, history of contemporary music, arranging for big band .. Fees: lessons are 90minutes and the fees depend on the frequency of the lessons and the location of the student.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
