I would think the best way to go about it is to find someone who can teach you what you want to play...and then practice...practice.....practice.... :lol:

Jazz is very different to Classical. If you play CLassical you'll have damn fast fingers perhaps, but no idea of the jazz theory. it takes a long time to study it and you'll be surprised what the jazz world have to offer.

You wont have any music to read either. My passion is Jazz, my life is Jazz and my fingers are jazz..along with my ears and heart, which is why i share it with others. Take it from me, that classical will only give you a better start coz you know major scales, and good fingers, because you can learn a lot of jazz just by knowing major scales.

Exciting adventure with the correct teacher.

When I was studying the piano, my piano teacher told me that when I've mastered classical, jazz & improvisation will be a as easy as 1-2-3. It proved to be somewhat true, if you've not been blindly memorising/ deaf to what you've been playing in classical.

Jazz has its own forms etc.,.. but having done classical, gave me a good foundation I felt, and the differences weren't hard to negotiate.
