How to learn playing jazz piano?

What are the ways to learn playing jazz piano?

I've played piano for many years and reached ATCL already for a few years, but the songs that I play are mainly in baroque, classical, romantic styles. I have no experience on playing jazz piano and I want to learn it.

Any suggested songbooks(or scales books) to start jazz piano techniques?

Thank you very much! ^_^

    This is a long way away — 4 weeks ago

    I am still practicing an hour a day and seeing my teacher once a week, but I have to go through the process of re-learning my circle of fifths so that I can play any chord in any inversion, anywhere on the keyboard without thinking about it. I am still working on finger strength so each one can work independently of the others. I am just going to continue to focus on the blues, and now my teacher has thrown in some simple classical excercises so I can get used to that style.

    How to Play Jazz Piano

    Jazz is an art form that has grown from its blues origins to draw influences from just about every genre of music there is. For the beginner, though, it's perhaps best to focus on early swing and learning to improvise. Here's a pretty easy way to get going!



    Assuming you already know some very basic theory, first learn all 15 major scales (there are twelve different SOUNDING scales, but in theory B/Cb, F#/Gb and C#/Db are separate scales). Learning all the scales will be extremely helpful. .....
