Clients I'm Seeking:


As an educator, I accept motivated adult students for private Jazz piano lessons, workshops and clinics.

About My Business:


Located in the Ocean Beach community of San Diego, students receive music lessons individually planned for their age, level of experience and goals/preferences. Specific Jazz styles will be addressed including Jazz Standards, Broadway, Gospel, Classical music & the Blues. In depth piano study for Jazz theory and harmony, piano chord voicing, altered chords and substitutions, improvisation and soloing, accompaniment and comping, lead sheets and fake book study, scale and mode use, blues progressions and rhythm development. Jazz piano lessons are taught personally by pianist/composer D C DowDell. Motivated, serious students will be accepted at all levels. Beginning students are instructed to play music from the very first lesson and continue progressing with a comprehensive method of study. Intermediate and advanced players benefit from lesson plans specifically designed to utilize their experience and strengths. Typically, students come for a 1 hour lesson, once per week. All students have unlimited free access to sheet music, manuscript paper, audio and video downloads, updates & other study materials in the Online Student Area.
