Learning to improvise is fun and easy if you know where to start, with an understanding of basic harmony, melody and rhythm at the keyboard. Seeing, hearing, feeling and knowing how these things fit together and how to use them is the key. If you can already play piano at a beginning level, and want to understand improvisation, this course is for you.

Hi, I'm Keith Davis

This course has grown out of my forty years of professional experience as a Jazz pianist, composer, and teacher.

My hope is that this course will provide you with the tools you need to understand improvisation from the very beginning. If you follow step by step, this first series will get you improvising over some basic harmonic structures.

Future sections will explore many different areas: harmony, improvisation, composition and creating piano arrangements of your own.
