I am committing myself to be an "intermediate" jazz piano player by the end of 2010. I know my chords, scales, and a couple of songs. I do have a musical background from playing clarinet in middle and high school.
Last year I bought a Yamaha P85 Digital Piano, with the promise to myself that I would play every day. That worked until life got hectic. After hundreds of dollars on books, dvds, and courses, the only thing missing is dedication and commitment.
I'm hoping this works.
