As part of either a monthly or 1-Year membership to Jazzedge , you will get access to 16 modules that teach you how to create full arrangements for Jazz standards, along with improvisation. Cocktail Piano Lessons is a complete course to teach you how to become a cocktail pianist.
You'll learn both arranging techniques along with improvisation skills.
Some of the songs you'll learn:
- It's Only a Paper Moon
- Moonlight in Vermont
- I Can't Get Started (partial for re-harmonization study)
- In The Wee Small Hours of The Morning
- I Loves You Porgy
Here are some of the lesson titles:
Once you become a member of Jazzedge, you will have immediate access to our CocktailPianoLessons.com lesson library along with lessons from 6 more sites. You can start at the beginning and work your way through each lesson in sequential order. Or you can jump right into the lesson that will teach you the technique you want to play.
These lessons have been created with an intermediate level player in mind. There are exercises to help you better familiarize yourself with chords and rhythms but you do need a base knowledge of this in order to get the most out of these lessons.
Is the content on this site also on PianoWithWillie?
No. Each microsite’s content is unique to that site alone. That means the lessons, sheet music and tracks you find here are not found on PianoWithWillie, and vice-versa.
Can I download the videos?
You can download all of the sheet music and files that go with the lesson, but the videos are streaming-only.
I'm already a PianoWithWillie member, can I get a discount?
From time-to-time we do run specials. All specials are sent via email so be sure to check the emails that you receive from us.
Is the sheet music included?
Yes! There is sheet music included for the lessons and it can easily be downloaded from the course page.
Do you have a money-back guarantee?
Yes and no. Since you receive immediate access to all of the sheet music and files once you order we have a credit-back policy. This means if you are unhappy with the lessons for any reason, simply contact us for a full credit of your first month’s payment toward any other lesson or site.
What's the difference between Monthly and 1-Year?
In terms of access and what you receive, both memberships are EXACTLY the same. The only difference is that with the 1-Year option you are paying only once and you save by paying for the year in full.
What if I need help?
If you need help with the site before or after ordering, you can click on chat bubble at the bottom of each page and submit your question. Sorry, music-related questions are only answered if you are a paying student.
What if I need feedback or practice help?
If you want feedback on your playing or a more personalized practice plan, check out the Coaching With Willie program. With the coaching program you can get personalized help, meet students from around the world and ask your questions. Plus, all coaching students get access to the coaching-only member’s course with helpful tips on how to get the most from your practicing. Learn more.
