    Daniel Nicholson Jazz Improvisation Teacher (Cardiff) Picture I began as a Suzuki trained pianist at a very young age being taught with very high levels of discipline and fine tuning. Whilst this method has its advantages borne from child developmental theory, in reality its approach is not one that is likely to ever become a blanket pedagogical pathway in...
