Andy LaVerne has received a number of composition and performance grants from America's National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) program and successfully toured as a jazz pianist around the world. All of his experience and background inform his teachings on this video about scales, modes, voicings, and chord progressions. LaVerne also reviews several of his own compositions, including "I.R.S," "Circadian Rhythm," and "Suzy's World" to help viewers understand the way he chose to write them. He performs each song on the Yamaha Disklavier so that students can listen to the songs at half-speed and more easily analyze and play every note. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi

Andy LaVerne is an internationally known jazz master who served as the pianist, composer, and arranger for the Stan Getz Quartet. He has played with such acclaimed performers as Frank Sinatra and Dizzy Gillespie. On this video, LaVerne teaches students how to play the piano in his own style, as well as that of Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, and Bill Evans. He also explains aspects of jazz improvisation, chord voicings, rhythm comping, and other techniques that pianists can use while playing alone or with a band. A number of practice sessions, recorded with and without piano accompaniment, allow viewers to play along with the group. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
