I love your content, but downloading is tedious

I am an absolute fan of your content. Most appreciated of all is your emotional and artistic connections to theoretical concepts. I also enjoy your systematic approach to concepts as well as the short leap from exercise to music. My only criticism is that when downloading bundles or multiple courses, the process becomes tedious and difficult to keep track of. It would be very nice to download entire courses as zip files rather than 3-10 separate folders. This is compounded by the bundles. Still, keep it coming. As a profession bassist, I turn to your content for continued learning above all others.

C’est excellent, des informations très pertinentes sur l’entrainement du Jazz

C’est pratique, concret et complet. Ont peut vous comparer à l’approche de Jamey Aebersold. Ont travail toujours dans les 12 tonalités. C’est une approche précieuse.

Approach Notes PDF and Video

I got the download only a few days ago, but the YouTube video was very inspiring. The explanations are very clear, and the information is presented in an engaging way. It was great to finally understand how Approach notes work. You are a great teacher, many thanks.

The Jazz Duets approach notes package fantastic value

Here is material that is comprehensive and jam packed with a system for improvisation that for me is the next step. I plan to work hard on this material to combine with what I know to date and can see an end goal. (I would love to be able to purchase a hard copy in book format). Highly recommended.

That´s music!

These exercises are very valuable. They sound musical and not technical, unlike many other products out there. Thank you very much for that.
