Great experience. The drones in 12 keys is a very important feature for me. I am concentrating on subscribing this year and the drones are very good for my ear training. I am using virtual piano and drones since I don't have a keyboard. I can use a piano once a month for ear training exercises while on volunteer duty at the Arts Council due to slow visitations and phone calls.
I really love this. The meditation brings profound results in music and life. Thank you so much for revealing this!
quite simple but a great idea! you learn to learn with it.
I have only just started work on this exercise and what starts out as seeming quite straightforward leads deeper and deeper in to new areas and insights. Great work. Thank you.
Excellent and great work, I fall in Coltrane music At the end of the 60s, I started the sax with a soprano following my meeting with Steve Lacy in the early 80s. Your way of teaching music is the most perfect to date And above all there is no age to start, I am French, I am 70 years old and have two passion music and languages
Have yet to fully use all the materials purchased. However, it is wonderful to know I have them on hand and can’t wait to dive in. I consider all past purchases excellent resources that will greatly help me in expanding my musical voice and vocabulary.
facilites access to tedious exercises
I loved it. I even began to play with it, and posted it on my audiomack acct as soon as he began to play, and explain the exercise. I have printed the pdf tab, and have yet to delve deeper so I am looking forward to it.
I was given an exercise years ago by my then teacher, Steve Kaldestad. Establish a tonality then play each note of the related scale and consider where each note 'wants to go'. To take an obvious example, for me the 4th. wants to go to the tonic. It might be different for you, which doesn't matter as the important thing is to hear and understand the function of the note. This accords beautifully with your Meditation with Coltrane
Very helpful - thanks
Another great Coltrane exercise for this jam rock guitar player with poor reading skills. I like the analysis and once I get it under my fingers I look forward to the meditation aspect. Great (difficult but rewarding small steps) challenge for me as is the Coltrane Pentatonics.
Coltrane's 'Resolution' is so amazing. Thank you for providing these exercises. They are great to learn and understand this truly awesome and inspiring music.
A minute after the download I was already holding my sax and starting practicing….and then I found myself in an other space. Thanks !!! P.S: Ok I will also learn Resolution :)
I just bought the cd so I can listen to it and begin this study it will be a great learning tool
As usual, great stuff. To my knowledge, Nick is one of the rare jazz teachers on the Web to focus on ear training with such simplicity, i.e. with such depth and richness and meaning. Thank you as always!
I first bought Nick's "10 Chords Progressions" and some other pdf's which have been very helpful in understanding how chords work together. HIs Coltrane "Meditation" is a bit more advanced, but I look forward to trying it. Keep up the good work, Nick!
