I'm an aspiring Jazz piano beginner but decided to quit using Czerny and Hanon for obvious reasons-hanon especially, because it might ruin my touch, and particularly because nearly everyone in my country adores(do they?) playing Czerny and Hanon.
So, I picked up Mikrokosmos by Bela Bartok. It seems a nice book to practice with all those zero point to advancement the book suggests.
But is Mikrokosmos enough for playing Jazz in the regard of technicality? I don't know about technicality but it seems that at least you get to be familiar with the church modal scales.
If this question is too subjective and inappropriate, tell me so that I can edit or delete my question.
