Jazz Piano Accompaniment

Jazz Piano Isn't Rocket Science

a warm welcome & overview from brenda earle stokes

Have you always wanted to play jazz piano but have no idea where to start?
Are you a classically trained pianist who wants to expand your knowledge?
Are you a jazz singer who dreams of accompanying yourself?
Are you a band or chorus director who needs some tools to work with your students?

What if I told you you can learn authentic jazz piano skills in a fast, fun and effective way in the comfort of your own home?


I’m Brenda Earle Stokes, an internationally recognized jazz pianist and vocalist, who has spent the last 20+ year teaching hundreds of people of all ages and levels how to play authentic jazz piano quickly and easily.

When people think of jazz, they think of a scary, theory-intensive music that takes years to play.  What if I told you I had come up with a proven method guaranteed to having you playing great jazz piano accompaniments and improvising within the first lesson!

I have been fortunate to perform internationally as a jazz pianist and vocalist, touring as a leader and sideperson with some really fantastic artists.  My other passion is teaching and I have taught students at every imagineable level how to play jazz piano and sound great doing it!

My method is clear, concise, action-oriented and proven.  I don't bog you down with theory and make you connect the dots - I have you play your way through every step, making this a hands on and playing-oriented course of study.

Learn to play jazz in an effective and fun way, in the comfort of your own home and experience the joy of playing your favorite jazz standards in the way you've always dreamed!

"This is a fantastic course and an absolute game-changer for voice teachers. Seriously. If your piano is just for scales, and you're convinced that you can't learn to play, think again! You don't have to be a brilliant pianist to accompany your students! Thank you, Brenda!"

Meredith Colby, Chicago voice teacher, Speaker, Blogger, Author of Money Notes

"Brenda is an inspiration She loves and breathes her passion for piano and her course is clear, concise and it works ! I can’t wait to get to the piano every day now! Thanks Brenda!!"

Kath Williams, Singer & Voice Teacher

"Brenda, Thank you for your course!  It fully lived up to its promise to teach me every basic I need in my studio in a few weeks of short daily practice. The icing on the cake is that you gave lots more information that I can get as much out of as I put into it digging deeper. I look forward to continuing to practice my "faking" skills and soon be accompanying myself and my students."

Winnie Fristoe, Singer & Voice Teacher
