Essential Jazz Piano Exercises Every Piano Player Should Know by Music Mentor Jerald Simon, is one of the books from the Music Motivation® Series (The Essential Piano Exercises Series).

Essential Jazz Piano Exercises Every Piano Player Should Know is a must have book for all piano players – especially for those interested in playing jazz music.

Essential Jazz Piano Exercises Every Piano Player Should Know is a book everyone can use to improve their understanding of jazz basics, blues scales, the ii-V-I chord progressions, modal jazz improv, other fun jazz chord progressions, and more. Essential Jazz Piano Exercises Every Piano Player Should Know was created as one of the resources for the members of the Essential Piano Exercises Course (https://www.essentialpianoexercises.com/). This book is dedicated to the many piano students, young and old, who have asked Jerald Simon over the years to release a book with all of the jazz piano exercises he feels are essential to help pianists learn how to improvise, arrange, and even compose in a jazz style.

In this book, Jerald teaches the following:

Key Signatures – page 6, Basic Music Intro/Review – page 12, Most Common Chords – page 22, Blues Pentascales – page 38, 12 Bar Blues – page 48, The Major Blues Scale – page 76, 2 – 5 – 1 (ii7 – V7 – I7) – page 88, Jazz Modes – page 98, Whole – Half – Half – page 105, Using the Chromatics Scale – page 110, Using Jazz Chords – page 116, The Boogie-Woogie – page 138, Using 7th Chords – page 170, Improv Lessons – page 198, Modal Jazz Improvisation – page 222, 9th Chords – page 237, Modulating from one Key to Another – page 244, Over 100 Measures of RH Riffs and Improv Patterns Created from the Minor Blues Scale – page 248, and Over 100 Measures of RH Riffs and Improv Patterns Created from the Major Blues Scale – page 252.

The entire book follows a pattern of: 1. teaching the jazz music theory concept, 2. presenting exercises that focus on implementing and applying the jazz music theory concepts, and 3. demonstrating how the theory and and jazz exercises can be combined together to create actual jazz music by having the piano student play jazz music that was composed using the exact jazz theory concepts the student has just learned.
