Piano Voicing Method for All Musicians
by Phil DeGreg - Book/Online Audio set

Large 248 page spiral-bound book and online play-along/Demo tracks. A practical and systematic method that teaches how to practice jazz piano voicings so that they become automatic and intuitive. The method progresses step by step from 2-voice to 7-voice chord structures with fourths and upper-structure triads.

Each chapter presents essential harmonic progressions written and spelled out in all keys, along with fingerings to help non-keyboardists. Also provided are songs, written out for both hands, which utilize the techniques and voicings just learned. Includes comping rhythms, bass line techniques, and practice strategies. Excellent for both classroom and individual study. Strongly endorsed by Mark Levine, Bobby Shew, Denis Diblasio, and many others.

The online audio tracks let you practice the piano exercises in the book with bass and drum accompaniment; you can also practice comping along with a saxophone soloist. A demonstration piano track on one channel, played with a stylistic comping feel, gives you an idea of how the piano voicing exercises should sound.

"I recently purchased
 a copy of your Jazz Keyboard Harmony and write to say I think it’s absolutely superb and I’m
 enjoying every minute of practicing with it, using the Appendix B patterns with Appendix D (and home-grown) phrases and the metronome is great fun and I can feel myself growing in freedom (and FLOW) – praise the Lord! I’ve actually bought two copies of the book, one for myself and one for my grandson." John P.

"I just wanted to let you know that I picked up your book a few months ago
 and just started delving into the voicings. WOW! I am 47 yrs old and want
 you to know that this book is the answer to my prayers. It makes music
 voicings and harmony easy to understand and use. Where has this book been all my 
life? Many Thanks for a really fine piece of work." Vince M.
