Get a teacher.

And if you want to play romantic moonlight music, you better get sheet music of Richard Clayderman instead of jazz.  ;D

Jazz is Bud Powell, Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Thelonious Monk, Brad Mehldau...Nothing to do with notions of romance and moonlight! No music for warm showerers! 8)

Best Wishes,

I just joined this forum today. If you don't mind, tell me a little of your jazz background.

I've been playing piano for years but have been studying jazz only since January. I lucked out and found an awesome teacher: innovative, motivating, and a monster.
