Created by Noah Kellman, The Neo Jazz Academy focuses on helping students achieve their jazz piano goals through the application of effective modern methedology. The Neo Jazz Piano Method is a full, 0-100 jazz harmony & improvisation method developed by Noah Kellman over many years of teaching. It incorporates modern concepts such as:
Extended Harmony with Jazz Theory Fundamentals (how to develop a full understanding of voicing extensions and their use in non-functional harmony)
Voicing Elasticity - a series of learning techniques that give you full "range of motion" with your voicings so that they can be used in any context, including reharmonization (not just in one spot in one tune)
Reharmonization Techniques - this includes both "pre-reharmonization" techniques (reharmonizing a song before performing it), and real-time reharm techniques, for learning how to reharmonize on-the-spot
Most importantly, The Neo Jazz Piano Method gives you a full 360 degree method which you can use over and over to learn and master literally any song or chord progression.
