I have studied music theory for 2 years. I have learnt about major ,minor , chord scale ,chord progressive etc. I think I love jazz sound and want to learn it. So what is different between classic and jazz music? And which book I suppose to study where can I get it? Thank you in advance.

That's the theory. What about the practical side? How long have you played? Do you play with others? – Tim Jul 28 '14 at 14:48

I'm in stage of beginning. Personally I play piano but not well. I want to know about jazz theory because it takes important part in arrange four-part of chorus. – Jaturon Suwanumpornchai Jul 29 '14 at 2:18
