What Students Are Saying
"I think one of the biggest things that sets Noah apart from all the other teachers and jazz piano courses out there is that he teaches you how to integrate it into your playing, and that's often overlooked by so many other courses. Which is why his Jazz Piano Secrets course is the perfect course, and just working with Noah is the best thing I've ever done."
"So JPS... this program from Noah is a very clever distillation of highly-effective MO's for evolving all kinds of wherewithall concerning voicings, developing capacities for hearing harmony, for soloing, and a list of other specific talents that all of us are after."
"I've been struggling to learn jazz piano on my own using random YouTube videos and some books. I think the struggle was because I was not able to connect the dots, and Noah's Jazz Piano Secrets course felt like a revelation to me because it helped me with connecting the dots... and I think I will never again run out of practice material..."
So are you willing and ready to dedicate yourself
to taking your playing up to a pro level super fast?
If you'd like to learn a ton about jazz piano, improvisation, creating chord progressions, reharmonization, soloing with modern licks, arpeggios and runs, and more, then this is the most important message you'll ever read.
I am ridiculously excited to say that I’m now accepting new students into my Jazz Piano Secrets program, and I have an incredible bundle offer for you, so let’s cut straight to the chase.
✅ You’re probably here because you’ve seen my teaching style and you know that I'm both a serious teacher, and a serious player who takes a highly-efficient approach to teaching jazz piano.
✅ You know that I often teach modern harmonic concepts and neo soul-influenced jazz improvisation and harmony.
✅ You also probably know that my Neo Jazz Piano Method is a new, more efficient way to learn jazz piano, especially if you want to get to a high level fast and achieve a modern, neo soul / jazz hybrid sound which is incredibly useful not only for sitting down and impressing people at a concert or on social media, but also for producing, composing and beat making as well.
✅ And you know that it’s crucial to understand if you want to really take your skills to a professional level quickly.
Honestly, creating this method and this course has easily been one of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve ever worked on, despite it being extremely time-consuming— I really love teaching, and it’s insane to see just how much students can improve by using this method, and how quickly they can pull it off.
I genuinely think the Jazz Piano Secrets program is going to propel tons of musicians to the forefront of the modern music industry because of the sound it helps them achieve...
And if you act quickly, you’re going to be one of them.
In fact, Sean was one such student who felt he improved at an incredible pace:
Unlike many other courses that hammer you over the head with tune after tune, adding confusing information and then taking you to the next tune before you're ready, we’re going to use one, simple but challenging progression to learn a crazy amount of techniques, and you’re going to truly master each one.
We’re going to talk about achieving real comfort with voicings, arpeggios & runs, harmony, reharmonization, chord substitutions, how to create your own chord progressions for composition, production or beat making, and more.
I’m going to teach you everything you need to know about how to improvise:
By the end of this course, you’re going to have a whole toolbox of modern exercises and modern approaches to learning improvisation, and it’s going to give you a huge leg up compared to people who haven’t taken this course.
I truly believe that if you are looking for a course to learn jazz piano from a modern, current perspective for achieving fast results, there is no better course out there.
I’ve been getting tons of people asking me questions about my teaching systems, and if I can guide them. I’ve been having to turn away private students and even had to shut down my studio on multiple occasions because I’ve just gotten too busy in general.
So what I did was I put all of heart and soul into creating this one, single course that has all of the info you need to take your playing to a really high level.
I think the most frustrating thing I see is when students come to me and tell me they found one person teaching a, b, c on YouTube or another teaching, x, y, z, and they can’t figure out how to integrate it into their playing.
There’s so much information out there from all different levels of sources, and so part of why I made this course, in fact, part of why I started teaching in the first place, is to eliminate students’ confusion—
This course clarifies how to utilize exercises, how to put them in context.
THE COURSE STRUCTURE
Phase 1 is all about your harmonic foundation.
We’re going to start by filling in any remaining gaps you might have with jazz theory, using not only the theory itself, but some really powerful ear training techniques, so even if you already know your theory, I’m willing to bet you’re going to hear it in a new light after this.
We’re also going to dive into Harmonic Cell Theory and I’ll show you some Intervallic Progression Formulas which will get you started on your way to creating amazing chord progressions instantly and reharmonizing them right near the start of the course.
Harmonic Cell Theory & Creating Sick Progressions
Harmonic Cell Theory gives us an easy method for creating jazz and neo soul progressions at a high level. We will talk in depth about how you can use it to come up with your own harmony and sound like a pro.
Voicing Mastery Techniques
Have you ever gotten frustrated by the process of learning voicings because you never feel like you really know them in every key and have true mastery over them? That's how I've often felt, and that's why I'll be showing you what are, in my opinion, the most effective methods of integrating voicings into your playing and getting to the point where you have complete mastery over them.
Intervallic Progression Formulas
Intervallic Progression Formulas are an incredibly powerful and quick way to create interesting harmonic motion in any jazz tune or progression. After learning these, you will have highly improved skills for reharmonization and composition.
Harmonic Ear Training
As you know, I feel ear training is absolutely key to effective and quick progress, however, it is often overlooked or forgotten. I'm not sure why more courses don't include it in the program, but we will be doing a lot of focused ear training to speed up your learning and strengthen your ability to hear music at a pro level.
Next, in Phase 2, we’re going to dive head first into the Linear Restriction Improvisation Technique.
This learning technique is going to quickly empower you to be playing and connecting modernistic lines and arpeggios over chord progressions, but the best part is that you’re going to learn this technique so that you can apply it to absolutely any progression or song you’re working on.
The Linear-Restriction Improvisation Technique
In my opinion, this is the fastest way to master a tune or progression of any level. We're going to go in depth into how you can use this technique to quickly ascend to being a top-notch improviser. There are a lot of really interesting techniques built in and we get into the details in this course.
Arpeggio Formation Technique
I'm happy to give you lots of sick arpeggios and runs to work on, but wouldn't it be great if you could come up with them on your own? We're going to get into how I come up with awesome arpeggios and how you can too.
Left-Hand Comping Patterns
If you've ever felt at a loss about how to improve your left hand comping, look no further. We're going to get into some really interesting ideas about how to improve your left hand.
Linear Ear Training
In Phase I, we do harmonic ear training, but now we get into melodic ear training. We work on hearing and remembering lines of varying difficulties.
Phase 3 is going to be super fun— we’ll be consuming tons of modern vocabulary, including neo soul inflections, bebop licks, blues licks, arpeggios, runs, voicings, reharm formulas, and so much incredible information.
We’ll also be looking at some insane techniques for reharmonization, creating chord progressions, and more.
Chord Substitutions for Creating Tension
We look at how you can use your left hand to create tension against the expected harmony using interesting chord substitutions.
Reharmonization Formulas & Reharming Techniques
I'll walk you through a series of foolproof reharmonization formulas that you can incorporate into your playing so whenever you're in a progression, you know how to surprise people by switching out the chords and changing the context of a melody.
Modern Licks & Neo Soul Inflections
Just like it sounds! We'll be looking at a series of killer licks that I've never shared anywhere else for you to steal and use.
Advanced Improvisation Techniques
In this course, we'll talk about some really fun and interesting modern improvisation techniques to take your playing to the next level and integrate them into your improvisation. We'll talk about how player's play "out" and construct killer lines for soloing.
Finally, in Phase 4, we're going to take all of the vocabulary from Phase 3 and work on integration.
We're going to focus on some really advanced concepts: first off, advanced improvisation and solo development, and finally, developing your own sound.
By the time you’re done with Phase 4, you’ll have all the necessary tools for developing your own, unique musical style using everything we’ve learned.
That means you leave the course not only with a ton of new knowledge about piano, but with the ability to put it into context for creating super impressive music right off the bat, and most critically, a method for turning it all into a sound that is unique to you.
Linear Contour - Developing Lines Like a Pro
Creating lines is one thing, but developing them so that they're more than just a string of notes is an art in and of itself.
Solo Development: learning to build solos for maximum impact
A lot of players can throw in cool licks and exercises, but how do you develop a solo at a high level? We'll cover this in detail.
Exercise Application & Integration
How many times have you learned an exercise and had no idea how to actually add it into your playing, composing, producing, or improvisation? You'll leave this course with some clear strategies for integrating vocabulary into your music.
Developing Your Own Unique Musical Style
It's so important to take your knowledge and use it to create a sound or style that is unique to you, but that's no easy task. We're going to go over some effective methods you can use to make your style your own.
Building Effective Practice Routines
Using some of the knowledge from the practice routine bonus, we'll talk about how you can structure effective practice routines going forward to maximize your improvement.
But, believe it or not, it actually gets even better than that.

You Have 3 Options
Frequently asked questions
Here are a few answers to the most common questions I get asked about the course.
No. The vast majority of the course includes video examples with easy-to-see light-up keys.
You can join the Jazz Piano Secrets program for a one-time payment of $497, or you can pay using a payment plan of 12 payments total, $47 per month for 12 months.
Yes! Many students move at their own pace.
The course lasts 12 weeks, but you can also move at your own pace. You will not lose access to the videos. Many students prefer to move at a slower pace, sometimes spending two weeks on each week. That's totally fine!
The payment plan offers you an alternative option to paying up front. However, it is not a subscription. Instead of paying the full price at the start, you instead pay a total of 12 monthly payments. You cannot cancel these payments, but they stop automatically after 12 months. In other words, you are paying for course over time instead of all at once.
As soon as you sign up, you will receive instructions on how to access all of the bonuses and course content!
The community offers a 24/7 place to chat, receive feedback, ask questions and more! One of the bonuses I'm throwing in is pre-recorded hour-long group Q&A sessions. While they are not live, they cover a vast amount of ground and there's a very good chance all of your musical questions will be answered in the pre-recorded Q&A archives.
The course has a private community where we will all be able to interact, upload videos, give feedback, ask questions, share music, and more! You will receive more details about how to log in once you sign up for the course.
Do you want to take your playing to the next level, and are you willing to put in the work to get there? If you've ever used any of my exercises before, this course is probably about your level. I'm expecting students to dedicate around 1 hour a day to the course. If you can do 2 hours, even better! If you can only do 30 minutes, you'll still be able to learn and move forward, but I would recommend slotting an hour if you can. Overall, as long as you are comfortable with the fundamentals of piano and are ready to work, you're going to get a lot out of this course.
Yes. While I can't promise the membership portal itself will always be up, I will make sure that you can always see the video files. Once you purchase the course, it is yours to watch as you please. You can go through it in the allotted 12 weeks, or you can spend a year going through it. The choice is yours!
