Our Teaching Philosophy
We believe that anyone can learn to become a great jazz musician. There was a time when people thought you either had it or you didn't. That time has long passed. We know that becoming a great musician is almost entire related to practicing and developing skills. Our goal is to provide the inspiration and the resources to keep the practicing going. There are ways to develop as a jazz musician and we are ready to share those strategies and help everyone improve. It takes work, but anyone can develop the skills needed to improvise and make music.
Our exclusive Membership begins with teaching beginning improvisation on the blues, teaching bebop language and then increasing musicians repertoire to improvise on many jazz standards. We approach jazz improvisation like learning a language and provide members with standard licks, phrases, and formulas used by jazz musicians. Ultimately the practice is up to you! But we hope that we make the process towards improvement easy, and the end goal attainable.
