For classical piano teachers wanting to play and teach jazz
James Taylor

9781909644038-frontcover Suitable for anyone with a basic knowledge of music theory and piano/keyboard technique, Jazz & Improvised Piano by James Taylor  is written for those wanting to learn how to improvise. It will be an immense help for any classical piano teacher wanting to play and teach jazz, or anyone already teaching jazz piano. It offers a new angle, teaching improvisation skills before introducing jazz theory, then teaching jazz theory as a set of processes for finding chords – as opposed to offering the more usual selection of chords, riffs and modes to learn and transpose.
