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.
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.
