Having jazz piano lessons, as a novice, with Paul Tobey was the foundation for my ongoing love of and ability to play jazz, both as a solo musician, and in groups.  His knowledge is exceptional and he was patient and kind when it came to new concepts.  I learned so much from him that I use to this very day.  This included the skill of ‘comping’ or being able to harmonize and interpret a jazz chart, creating interesting solos, and so much more.  I would highly recommend having the opportunity to build jazz piano skills under Paul’s instruction.

Wonderful masterclass! I learned as much from your spoken content as I did from listening to you play. I jammed on the Bb blues after the class. I’m camping this weekend but will get some tracks to you early next week.

Dear Paul; This course has truly so much to offer that through my own personal experience I can honestly say will have your fingers dancing over those keys in a matter of months and be the very foundation of all your piano playing future.

It also makes learning to play the scales in particular a joy and so so easy. Once you know your majors you’ll have cracked it bearing in mind the relative minor key, sharpening the 7th for the harmonic minor. The melodic minor is the same as the major scale but with a flat 3rd ascending. My advice to you is learn your circle of 5ths and your good to go with this course. Can’t recommend it too highly. An excellent ten week course but don’t plan on ten weeks as it will be with your every day for the rest of your piano playing life.
