Comments about Musicians Institute Jazz Piano (Book/CD):
Its been 3 or 4 years since i have seriously been on a piano or keyboard. I mess around on it often though. I decided recently to get back into it seriously but i need a tool to assist me. So i bought this book. What a find!!! This book was so helpful. I use it to practice every day. I notice the difference every time i touch a keyboard. I think with the help of this book i am becoming a better musician than i was 3 years ago. This book is good for beginners and even novices. It combines in a nut shell all the jazz improvisation and theory into less than 100 pages. Of course it only helps you get the basics down. Jazz is your own personal feel mostly. but all in all this is a GREAT PRODUCT!!!!
