THURSDAY October 19  12 pm EST          

SATURDAY October 21, 7:30 pm 

  • What you’ll gain:
⚫ THREE approaches to improvisation that can work for you immediately.  I’ll share the exact exercises that have helped my students get past playing prescribed parts to making music in varied and creative ways. You’ll PLAY, improvising, muted, throughout the class.

⚫ Discover the difference between “learning harmony” and “doing improvisation”. By separating the two, we will end frustration and overwhelm, redesigning your practice routine for efficiency, enjoyment, and progress. 

Groove cheat codes. Harmony Cheat Codes. Improvisation Cheat Codes.  

Bonus: templates and step by step worksheets to take away so you can replicate the process with songs in almost any style.

****Traditional practice methods, while useful, can lead to feeling unmotivated and self-critical.

Many musicians tell me they hesitate to play publicly, or in front of family or students.
It doesn’t need to be that way. A healthy practice builds self-awareness and acceptance. The ideal outcome of any practice is to become a better friend to yourself.
This is why the guided exercises I provide you will be similar to Yoga in that they promote mindfulness and enjoyment.

Experience key parts of my method that have helped hundreds of my adult students go past their perceived musical limits, and enjoy a rigorous practice session in good company.

Yes. I teach group classes like YOGA classes in the sense that every participant is offered modified exercises to their level. Everyone will be sufficiently challenged and everyone will be able to participate.   

With Clear method and structure, it’s never too late to learn skills. Often the hobbyist players in my classes keep up with or outpace the professional experts, because they are open.
