Your Ears Have To Be Wide Open…like Antennas That Are Receiving The Music.

Jazz improvisation is really jazz composition - BY EAR - in real time. It's not luck or chance or random. The music comes from your inner ear, your musical memory, your aural imagination, and your listening skills.

But everything nowadays is turned around.

You see the old timer's had very little information about learning available to them - there were no music schools for them to learn jazz in.

Consequently, everyone learned in a personal way...by ear…by going to gigs, checking out older cats, and listening to the records.

Today, cats learn the technique, the theory, and the mechanics first. Usually from a book.

And As A Result Many Cats Struggle With Jazz And It Just Never Clicks:

  • Their progress with jazz is slow and uncertain.
  • Many spend hours in the sheds practicing their butt off, yet they have no idea what to play when it came time for a session or rehearsal.
  • Their practice sessions are usually boring as hell and often even painful (Tendonitis, CTS, etc)
  • They lack confidence in their musical ability, especially on the bandstand.
  • They frequently get lost on tunes at jam sessions and lessons. #trainwreck #soembarrassing
  • They certainly can't sound & play the way they want to.
  • Worst of all, they don't feel like a REAL jazz musician; they don't feel like 'one of the cats'.

Yet, It Doesn't Have To
Be That Way:

You see, a musician needs killer ears.

And when YOU shift YOUR practicing to being ear-focused you can dramatically change your musical path:

  • Suddenly your progress with music will happen faster.
  • Improvising, soloing, and playing by ear will all become normal – you won’t ever be at a loss for what to play. #thingswillflow #thezone
  • When you engage your ears in the practice room, practice becomes more engaging, and time flys by. No more boring hours of mindless mechanical noodling.
  • As your ears get better you will naturally become more and more confident in your playing.
  • Getting lost on your solos won't even be a thing.
  • You’ll begin to play music the way YOU want it to sound.
  • You'll finally feel confident with your ability and like you can hang with the cats at your jam sessions.

 

When You Make Your Ears A Priority A New Musical World
Opens Up For You

The good news is that it’s never too late for you to make this shift from mechanical, thinking music to creative, expressive ear-focused music.

And I’m very excited to announce that my very good friend and musical partner Joel Yennior has decided to tackle this musical challenge head-on.

"Joel's course changed the way I think about, play, and hear both classical and jazz music. Joel is a wonderful teacher -- I found him really motivating and inspiring.

Joel uses clear language and simple examples that are well-sequenced...so you can immediately apply what you are learning in the course! "

Cindy Goodof
Jazz Pianist

"...I began taking lessons with Joel, and he could not have been more helpful.

As a virtuosic horn player, he is able to explain the methods behind his own playing and impart them on his students.

He can also play piano well which was extremely helpful during lessons in terms of understanding harmony, and he has a comprehensive knowledge of all styles of music, theory, and ear-training."

Josiah Reibstein,
Jazz Tubist and Composer

"Joel is a wonderful, responsible, experienced jazz teacher and has a great personality - I really admire him!"
