Harmony explained

Ignored by many, but once you understand it, Harmonic knowledge will become a great and important cornerstone of your playing and enjoyment of music.

Breaking down, analysing and familiarity with the core harmonic sequences of Jazz is key not only to playing freely, but also to avoiding mistakes and errors whilst improvising.

MP3 backing tracks

Practicing alone is good, but it is not the same as playing with a band. Probably your bandmates won't have the patience to accompany you with the same thing over and over again. Backing tracks featuring real life musicians inspires you to practice more often and with more feeling!

Analysis of the great Jazz standards

In order to become as best as we possibly can it is vital to study the greats. Breaking down their idea of music and understanding how they created their sounds is a big step to developing your own style. Learn from the masters like Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Stevie Wonder to apply this knowledge to your songs and improvisations.

"I've been playing for 55 years, and playing jazz for 25 years in big bands, and this package has opened my eyes to new things I would have never thought of. Not only the scales, that sound so cool, but learning the new sequencing of notes and experimenting with them and applying them to not only jazz, but country, rock, and pop, give a fresh new perspective on approaching songs, and definitely a way to break out of the same ol' same ol' and have fun working with new sounds again.

¨This is an outstanding lesson: thank you. I appreciate the metaphor but I'm especially blown away by the quality of the examples. Even the simple examples are truly musical... I'm going to study this deeply, as I struggle with playing flashy licks (badly) and need to get back to basics¨
