“Most hobby musicians lack focus.
They don’t really know what they are working towards so they have no idea what they should be working on”
– Gjermund Sivertsen, Founder
Goodbye to Jazz Overwhelm - For Good
Rather than selling a huge library of single jazz lessons that would completely overwhelm you with an enormous amount of information, we offer a "closed loop", a step-by-step system where all is interconnected. The result is that you will start to understand the fundamentals, as well as you'll work on executing before you reach the level of mastery of jazz piano.
PopJazzOnline.com Presents:
THE 9 PARTS OF
Jazz Piano Step-by-Step Course​​​​​​​ 
Here are the 9 parts of the Jazz Piano Step-by-Step Course (90 lessons!!)
UNDERSTAND THE METHODS
Discover the unique methods of learning jazz piano effectively and straight to the point
LEARN THE SCLAP
SCLAP stands for Scales, Chords, Licks And Practice. Learn all of the tools tomaximise your potential as a hobby jazz pianist.
LEARN BEBOP AND BEYOND

By understanding the methods the bebop players used, you'll see that you can take it beyond the fundamentals they invented

PLAY JAZZ STANDARDS
Understand what jazz standards will help you get to the next level. Then practice the jazz standards so you know them in and out.
COPY FROM THE MASTERS
Nothing comes out of nothing, and the great Jazz Masters knew this. By copying what they did note-by-note, you'll not only get more knowledge, but also wisdom!
EXECUTE JAZZ PIANO

Execute jazz piano based on what the masters have shown you through their music. By trying to sound like the masters while you also add your own ideas, you'll connect the dots.

IMPROVISE AND COMPOSE
Improvisation is the core of jazz music. When we know how to improvise, we'll get more and more free. By also composing music, you'll see that you get closer to the goal of freedom.
PLAY ANY STYLE
The great jazz masters knows how to play multiple jazz styles. In part 8 you'll learn how to play almost any jazz style and be able to switch between them
DEVELOP YOUR OWN SOUND/STYLE
The final part of your jazz journey should always be to sound like you. When you develop your own sound/style that is grounded in the roots of jazz, then you'll start sounding authentic and great!

UNDERSTAND
Make sure you understand how it all is related. The chords, the scales, the theory and how to practice!
EXECUTE
Once you understand the basics it is time to dig deeper into the foundation of jazz: Standards, what the masters did and how you can do the same
MASTERY
When you have the foundation in place, you can finally be able to master jazz piano yourself. To be able to improvise freely over multiple styles and finally get clear on your own unique voice, that's what it is all about
There's Finally a Clear Path
You'll always know what to practice and in what order with confidence that you're doing the right things to reach your musical goals

The first 6 lessons

Each part of the course comes with 10 rich lessons.

Most of them between 30 and 60 minutes long. Here are the first six:

JAZZ PIANO LESSON 1

In this very first jazz piano lesson, you’ll get to know me – and I get to know you.


We’ll repeat the basics such as the circle of fifths + a lot of jazz theory and jazz philosophy.


I’ll introduce you to our methods and you'll get specific things to work on such as jazz piano voicings and more.

JAZZ PIANO LESSON 2

Your second lesson will be given to you 10 days after you signed up, but you can unlock lesson 2 whenever you feel ready.

In this lesson we’ll cover the basics of swing and harmony.

We’ll talk a lot about listening to Jazz (and why it is important) as well as how you can use alterations when you play jazz.

JAZZ PIANO LESSON 3

In your third lesson we’ll work a lot on how to improvise.


Improvisation is the core of jazz, and it is essential that we learn improvisation and develop our improvisation muscles.


In this lesson I will also show you more on how you should practice to get the best results.

JAZZ PIANO LESSON 4

Just like a baby needs to imitate his parents to learn his mother language, we need to imitate jazz musicians to be able to express ourselves through the “jazz language”.


I will show you how you can transcribe in multiple ways.


Also in this lesson we’re exploring improvisation over a blues.

JAZZ PIANO LESSON 5

In this lesson we’ll start working on one of two songs. You actually make a decision if you want to work on song A or song B, or maybe if you’re tough enough you may handle both of the songs?


We’ll use one of the transcribing methods that was introduced in Jazz Lesson 0004.


Also we’ll study more of the history of jazz as well as the II-V-I progressions.

JAZZ PIANO LESSON 6

In your sixth lesson we’ll continue working on the one song you’ve chosen in lesson 0005.


Also we’ll work more on jazz theory and I’m going to teach you a thing you probably didn’t know.



We’ll work more on practicing scales as well as practicing the voicings you’re working on.

WHEN NEW LESSONS WILL BECOME AVAILABLE​​​​​​​
The option for unlocking your next lesson will be given 10 days after you’ve opened your current lesson. When you unlock your next lesson, the current lesson will be marked as complete. We give you 10 days between the lessons, but in our experience some people need more than 10 days before they’re ready to progress. Maybe you’re gone for a few days? Or maybe in periods you are extremely busy?
With this advanced lesson access system you will truly be able to do the course at your own pace without multiple lessons piling up, or feeling the guilt of being behind.
PRAISE FROM A STUDENT

It’s wonderful, and really useful. I can study everything seeing your videos and materials more and more. And this is great. Everything is perfectly clear, well explained. I’m very satisfied. Your approach is unique. I’m classical piano graduated and I studied a little about jazz some years ago in a Jazz school in Turin…but I didn’t understand nothing…It was lacking any kind of method. In three lessons with you I understood much more than i did in some months. So: I think your work is a really great course!

A few words from the teacher
A few words from the teacher

Hi! My name is Gjermund Sivertsen and I'm the founder of PopJazzOnline.com and the happy father of two boys. I'm married to my beautiful wife Ewa, and live a happy life outside of Oslo (Norway) where I'm running PopJazzOnline.com together with some great people.  


I'm writing now these words to let you get to know me a little, in case you decide to sign up to The Jazz Piano Step-by-Step Course! 


While you're reading this you can also have a look at a few of the videos from YouTube. (If you're able to multitask. I'm not)


My philosophy is in short: Take Care Of Your Music, because nobody else will do it for you. If you have the urge to play music/jazz (like I do), you can play music/ jazz piano. You and I probably have something in common: The passion for music, the passion for jazz. I'm really overwhelmed and thankful for the fantastic feedback from students and fans since I started PopJazzOnline.com at the beginning of 2016. 


I'm working day and night to support all my students, create new music and making sure everything works as it should. I'm truly grateful for the possibility to connect with so many students from all over the world and help them all understand jazz piano better by teaching my methods that simplify the complexity, as well as boost their productivity. 


Thank you all ! I wish you a great day and whatever you do, take care of your music!

Regards,

-=Gjermund Sivertsen=-

Introducing : Practicing Together
A new and better way to practice

For the first time ever you are able to sit down to practice together with your teacher. Thanks to fancy technology, we have the ability to slow down the music for you, create loop points as well as outlining everything for you.
Why make practicing harder than it is?


The only thing this course does not do for you is to do the practicing…
…for you.

Frequently asked questions
Frequently asked questions

Q: With all the free jazz piano lessons on YouTube, why do I need this course?
I will show you how you can transcribe in multiple ways.

A: This course tells you the order of what to practice. YouTube is great for getting inspiration, tips and tricks, but it doesn’t tell you the best order to work things out. Simply put: We love YouTube and we recommend you also use YouTube to fill up with helpful information. 
Still: If you want to see results and get the best order, this course will give you that!

Q: Am I good enough for this course?

​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

A: If you have been playing piano for some time (so you know the basics) and you see yourself as a person with a lot to learn and want to learn from an expert, this course is the right thing for you. It is more about your motivation and willingness to practice the things we’re going through in this step-by-step course that matters the most.

Q: What is the difference between a GOLD membership and BASIC membership?


​​​​​​​
A: Gold members get personal guidance, scoring (optional), access to the Gold member support area where you can ask questions directly to your teacher. For example: If you’re stuck in a lesson or just want to get advice, simply upload a recording of yourself (video or mp3) and get the help you need! (For serious students only)

Q: Can I skip between the lessons if I know things?


​​​​​​​A: No, not needed.
This is a good question that we get a lot before we get new students in, but almost never after a student is in the course. Since the course is a step-by-step program with many new methods, it will take time to master each lesson. If you happen to know some scales/chords or similar that we present in the course and you run out of work, there is a bonus section available with many exercises. 

Q: Will you show me how to improvise over jazz standards?
​​​​​​​​​​​​

A: Yes! One of the most important things we learn as jazz pianists is improvisation. We’ll focus a lot on how you can develop your improvisation to the next level. Also we’ll work on improvising over famous jazz standards. Also in part 4, we'll work deeper on the jazz standards

Q: Cancel any time?



​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A: After the 30 days trial, you'll start the monthly or yearly membership of your choice. You can cancel at any time. Before or after the 30 days trial. No obligations or long-term relationship required.(For serious students only)

Also, if you cancel before the 30 days there is a money-back guarantee. Absolutely NO risk!

Even more happy students

Gjermund’s jazz piano course is well structured and is motivational with the step by step approach.

Even though I have completed one year of a jazz degree, I am finding his course is consolidating my understanding as some topics are approached from a different angle to what I encountered at university.

As a jazz piano hobbyist, I am finding that my goals are being achieved with this course.
