Tim Richards – discover and explore popular piano styles


Critically acclaimed jazz pianist, educator and author Tim Richards has produced numerous titles for Schott Music, including the best-selling two-volume Exploring Jazz PianoBlues, Boogie and Gospel Collection and Improvising Blues Piano. He is also co-author, with John Crawford, of Exploring Latin Piano and Brazilian Piano Collection.

The fantastic new Jazz, Latin and Modern Collection is his latest release in the Schott Pop-Styles series, and comprises Tim Richards originals along with pieces by Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk.

“The real joy of Tim’s music… is that it is both hugely educational but also such great fun to play. Anyone with the slightest interest in learning to play or teach jazz piano should really acquire a set of Tim’s books.”PIANODAO
