What is this blog all about?
Welcome to my music and jazz piano blog. The idea to have a blog about music and specifically about jazz piano had been stuck in my head for a while so I finally decided to start one. I have been listening to classical, jazz, soul, funk, RnB and hip-hop since I was a child and since I think sharing is caring I thought it would be nice to share my views, ideas and thoughts on music and specifically jazz piano.
I have been playing piano since I was a teen and am mainly self-taught. However I did go and study jazz piano for 3 years. That said I am an intermediate player at best. I do love jazz and especially learning and teaching new concepts and methods. I want to share my experiences and thoughts so you can perhaps get a glimpse of what goes behind the wonderful world of jazz. My preferences of jazz are post 60s’ swing jazz, cool jazz, nordic jazz and perhaps even some smooth and acid jazz.
In this blog I will try to write about different topics regarding jazz and specifically jazz piano. It can be recommendations on jazz artists and recordings, my personal progress with jazz piano and music, my goals and even some lesson ideas I have developed. I also want to use my blog as a platform to showcase the jazz culture in Finland and especially in Helsinki. I am interested in both the performing and pedagogical aspect of Finland’s jazz culture.
I hope you like the blog!
