The hardest thing about learning jazz piano is which book to buy! There are many exercise books and the task can seem daunting. My book is completely different to every other book on jazz for the sole reason that you read it away from the piano rather than at it. From this book, you will learn how to become a Purposeful Pianist, how to play from the inside, develop your internal piano and understand some key jazz notions, most importantly, that of Note Value Awareness. Along with the almost 100 audio files recorded by and available from me (info in book), you will journey through jazz learning how to listen, not hear, learn chord progressions quickly and how to consider your own and listener's emotional centre. The next time you go to your piano, you will not play as you did before and you shall always play better than you ever did.

Learn how to create your own etudes in the style of your favorite musicians! Doing so reveals their favorite phrases and stylistic tendencies, allowing you to better understand and absorb their approach and concept (plus, there are unique, hip etudes that will be fun to play and share with your friends and students). Well-known pianist David Hazeltine used this method to develop his own style and refined it over the years to help his students. Now, it is available in book form for all who want to master the art of better phrasing. This is not a piano book. This is a single-line approach designed for all instrumentalists, including piano. "David Hazeltine is, quite simply, one of the finest musicians I've had the chance to perform with in my two-plus decades as a professional musician. Over the years, I've asked Dave to show me some of his harmonic and melodic concepts. Most times, he'll present me with a portion of one of his etudes that he's come up with. I've found them all to be tremendously informative. They are crafted in a way that makes the concepts contained in each exercise very organic, and readily accessible to me in my own improvisations. Dave's meticulous study of the masters of his instrument has yielded a treasure trove of information. His etudes are designed to maximize the internalization of particular styles and modern Jazz language in general. I'm confident that this book will provide countless hours---years even---of enjoyment and learning to all who take the time to look into the mind and the learning process of this brilliant musician." ---Eric Alexander
