Today for Music Education Monday, here are some lessons in piano and jazz theory from the veteran pianist Barry Harris, via a series of short videos produced by the Jazz Academy program of Jazz at Lincoln Center in NYC.
The first of these four clips was part of a previous post here with some other piano-related material, but now that the whole series is online, it seemed worth sharing again along with the companion videos.
With regard to Harris, we refer once again to that previous post, which said:
These lessons were recorded in September, 2013, and feature Harris talking with fellow pianist Eli Yamin, who helps him discuss and demonstrate various points. You can see a playlist with all four videos in the embedded window below.
For some additional free educational resources about jazz theory, take a look at Jazz Theory, a downloadable book in PDF format written by Stuart Smith, professor emeritus in the department of music at University of Massachusetts Lowell.
For a breakdown of similar material in smaller, bite-size" pieces, there's what amounts to a step-by-step tutorial at the website Jazclass, and also some handy reference pages pertaining to jazz theory at TheJazzResource.com.
