I have been learning jazz piano from Joey Trombly at SJG School of Music.
I have had several teachers before, but Joey has been hands down the most effective and fun piano teacher that I have had. I am learning jazz piano from him and in a little over a year I have gone from rather limited and frankly awful robotic skills to being able to sit in front of The Jazz Real Book type chord sheets and on the fly do one and two handed chord voicings. That in itself has been a satisfying joy for me. I am now learning how to improvise by identifying tonal areas over chord changes and improvise lines over them using different scales and approaches (keys, modes, etc.)
The thing with Joey is that he seems to effortlessly know exactly what to focus on at every lesson so that practice stays fun and absolutely not a chore, and without building bad habits or taking shortcuts. In that way Joey is a very gifted natural teacher. I have had four other piano teachers before Joey, in classical and jazz/pop, but every time I eventually got bored with practicing and eventually stopped altogether. Not so with Joey. Something in the way he looks at your playing and then finds something to work on next that keeps piano playing fun and fresh but at the same time will improve technique and musicianship, and before you know it you are doing things comfortably that you did not imagine you could learn in such a short amount of time.
As an adult with with a demanding day job I had more or less given up on learning piano after years of frustration, but thankfully Joey changed that for me and I am grateful for that. I hope that others will find the same joy that I have found in learning to play an instrument with Joey at SJG.
