Information: i'm a entertainger / singer / songwriter, but currently working as a piano and guitar teacher. i teach primarily regular stuff like christmas songs and pop. but ocassionally i get someone who wants to learn blues on the piano or guitar. jazz is a rare commodity here in norway, so when i found this site i was thrilled. i come from a line of pianists. my great grandfather was a professional pianist, my father is a pianist, and my big brother is also professional pianist. my father is a jazz pianist, but he is a purist, by that i mean he only uses decims in the bass and root chords in the right. so until i saw this site, this is the only experience i've had with jazz. i hope i will improve my skills by participating on this site.
