A Game-Changer

This workshop has been a game-changer for me. In a short amount of time, I've made huge leaps forward in my playing and grown in confidence. I'm finding that I'm utilizing elements of what I've learnt in everything I do, from creating, to teaching and facilitating, to singing rhythmic patterns as I'm washing up!

A Teacher that Understands

Thanks Christian Howes for providing this amazing platform. I'm so happy and relieved to have found a teacher that understands the frustrations of coming from a rigid classical background, and more importantly one who knows a way out into a wider world!!

Chris is a genius creative teacher -- i've rarely seen his level of expansive creativity- it's super inspiring. I've not practiced much in a while, but he has me inspired to play my violin again for fun. I'm just getting so much enjoyment from this- it's so inspiring to take the zooms, and really fun to see what others are doing on fb.

Love the drip course!

I gained inspiration and am starting to learn the freedom and joy of the non-classical approach. Love the drip course!

Simple Steps

The simple steps offered--identify triad chord tones, play chord tones, use inner voices to move between chord tones-- make achieving some success a faster process.

Total Fun

Playing in 5 and 7 has improved my rhythm and is total fun! Recording my improvisations helps me to be more creative and is total FUN. I'll probably be drilling I, IV, V, I for a long time. But it's FUN!! Playing scales and chords in extended range is a more FUN way to practice and has helped me understand harmony and know the fingerboard better than I ever learned in music school. I've also always been afraid to play by ear, but have improved by playing along with your videos. It's humbling and FUN!

Very inspirational. CAN'T GET ENOUGH! Has given me lots of ideas on what to work on. I now feel I can move forward creating interesting loops. I know how to learn a piece in a way that will allow me to comp better.
