Who is this website for?
By founder Thomas Gunther
This website is for all you wonderful contemporary pop-jazz pianists/keyboardists looking for ways to improve every aspect of your piano/keyboard playing, including related topics such as pop-jazz harmony, techniques for improvisation, song analyses, etc..
We do not just offer invaluable content for aspiring pop-jazz pianists and keyboardists. We also target those of you who use the keyboard as a second instrument. For example singer/song-writers who simply want to learn how to accompany themselves or write songs on the piano.
No matter your level of playing, PopJazzKeys is there to inspire and guide you, so that you can improve your playing faster no matter your goals.
Where You find guidance and inspiration
Which topics will you find here
The answer in a nutshell: all the topic as they relate to contemporary keyboard genres and styles such as jazz, rock, pop, blues, latin, gospel, soul, funk, and more.
Serving all these different genres and styles sounds more daunting than you might expect.
Think about it. All these contemporary genre and styles have actually a lot in common, starting with the piano technique itself, and topics such as techniques for improvisation, music theory (harmony, scales, ear training), etc..
My point is this: What ever genre or style you work on will ultimately help you with all the other style. You see, everything in music is interconnected. That's really great news.
What is My Vision for PopJazzKeys.com?
