Conceived and designed by eminent jazz pianist, vocalist, composer and teacher, Sharny Russell, after years of teaching vocals and ensembles in university jazz departments, this UNIQUE method has proven to be A GAME CHANGER.
Sharny was always on the lookout for simple ways to help singers help themselves and become more independent as musicians. Her classical piano training and subsequent experience as a jazz pianist/vocalist, her deep love and knowledge of harmony, and her intuitive approach as a teacher and mentor, all played a part in bringing forth this Method.
Sharny has often been known to say “I want to find the simplest and clearest paths possible for students to achieve their goals, because life is already too complex and daunting for many of us, and my mission in life is to bring encouragement and progress using simple frameworks and strategies.”
There are too many long and complicated courses out there, and let’s face it, we get defeated after a while and feel overwhelmed by too much information! Some of the top books on jazz piano are already mind-boggling in the first chapter. Then there are the courses that are so simple and unmusical sounding, that the experience is mind-numbing!
There is no other piano method like this – a straight-forward, simple process, with clear instruction and Sharny’s personal teaching manner that comes through even on the printed page.
