Playing with a real band doubles the fun whilst pushing you to new levels
The 7 BACKING TRACKS will take you further as you evolve and support you!
Playing alone by yourself never gives you the same feeling as having a band around. To come as close as possible to this experience, the backing tracks are played by real musicians and not made by computer, with the Human feel! To master every Time Signature you need to blend deeply with the band (and this one never complains!)

"I started practicing taking ideas from the videos available in Youtube and really appreciate the level of detail, the care and the passion that oozes from these well designed video. Never has music theory been so immediate and practical. Overall very positive experience and renewed passion as i jumped over significant practice rut through this material. Thank You Nick"

"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.
