Brent Vaartstra, Learn Jazz Standards

Greetings JazzPianoSkills Fam!

Yes, I am writing a Blog Post for the first time in a long time. Why? Because I have committed to resurrecting the JazzPianoSkills Blog in 2023. Why? Because it is an excellent way to recap the educational focus of the week. So what better time to begin than the present and reflect on my recent interview with Brent Vaarstra, founder and visionary behind the site Learn Jazz Standards.

Brent is a jazz guitarist, podcaster, educator, and entrepreneur residing in the New York area and has been providing jazz content for all instrumentalists (except drums) since 2010. His site and his work is well known throughout the world. So, I was thrilled when Brent accepted my invitation to appear on JazzPianoSkills to talk about his life, his vision, and of course, jazz education.
