Scales, voicings, rhythmic development, finger independence, upper structure harmony – all of these concepts are examined and demonstrated brilliantly by Geoffrey. Whether you’ve been playing jazz for two years or two decades – players of all levels can benefit from learning and applying the concepts Geoffrey puts forth.

LIVING NOTATION

Don’t just study Geoffrey's concepts. Experience the solo piano concepts, phrasing, voicings, feel, solo and thematic development first hand with our Living Notation technology. Follow Geoffrey's solos in real time with our interactive notation system. It's never been easier to get inside the mind of a master pianist.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR EXPERIENCE

If things are moving too fast, slow down a section with the speed control - the pitch always stays the same and you can digest at an easier pace if needed. Or, loop a section with our easy drag and loop system. There's plenty of charts and notation to help you along the way, as well as multiple viewing angles for you to just watch and imitate.

ABOUT GEOFFREY KEEZER

With his highly regarded discography, unique compositions, and acclaimed performances in a variety of configurations, multiple GRAMMY®-nominated pianist Geoffrey Keezer commands the attention typically reserved for the living legends of jazz. Whether recording with jazzy chanteuses Diana Krall or Dianne Reeves, touring with trumpet king Chris Botti, or collaborating with pop icon Sting, sax legend Wayne Shorter, guitar wizard Jim Hall, star bassist Christian McBride or vibes master Joe Locke, Geoffrey “has more than enough virtuosity and sheer musical wit and intelligence to weave all of his apparently disparate strands of influence into an original and compelling whole” (Time Magazine).

A native of Eau Claire, WI, Keezer was playing in jazz clubs as a teenager, holding down the piano chair for Art Blakey at age 18, and touring in the company of Joshua Redman, Benny Golson and Ray Brown in his 20s. More recently he has toured with David Sanborn, Chris Botti, Joe Locke and Christian McBride; worked with vocalist Denise Donatelli on projects garnering three GRAMMY® nominations, and released a series of albums drawing influences from Hawaiian, Okinawan and Afro-Peruvian folk traditions. Perhaps the most exciting turn in Geoffrey’s career is his recent focus on solo piano and his first solo release in thirteen years, Heart of the Piano (2013, Motema Records). On a mission to redefine solo jazz piano as a personal and interactive showcase of melody, energy and groove, Keezer brings to Heart of the Piano his most direct and focused artistry to date.

Geoffrey Keezer’s singular style of intellectually abstract lyricism woven over exotically complex rhythms and harmonies makes him one of the most sought-after artists on the modern jazz scene. Regardless of the nature of his projects, from solo to duo to quartet, from bandleader to big band, from post bop jazz to electronica to global fusion, from composer to arranger, Geoffrey delivers music from the heart of the piano to the ear–and heart–of the listener.
