Discover the building blocks of the jazz language as you develop harmonic control, build rhythmic vocabulary and explore time-tested improvisational techniques.
Blow over real jazz tunes, develop rhythmic vocabulary, play in all 12 keys, and lay the foundation for true harmonic control.
Learning to play jazz, improvise, and find an original sound is a tall order. In fact, many, many students struggle to ever get their jazz chops together.
They don't have a basic understanding of how jazz improvisation and making the changes really works and that makes it difficult to progress
They don't know what to practice, how to practice, or where to even begin with the mountain of stuff to learn
They often get lost on their solos, struggle to make the changes, and have to play by 'thinking' about what chord they're on.
Playing in all 12 keys is a nearly impossible for them. If someone calls a standard in a different key, it's game over.
They don't have inconsistent time and a very limited rhythmic vocabulary...in fact they often feel like they're playing the same 1 or 2 rhythms over and over
They struggle to play by ear, let their ear guide their improvisation, and so they sound like they're just noodling on chord scales...no personality, no creativity
The 5 Week Jazz Musician makes learning to play jazz easy by breaking the whole process down into easy to follow, bite size pieces. The course lays it out for you, step by step. Even if you’re just getting started with improvisation, you’ll be blowing over real jazz tunes in a matter of a few weeks.
First of all with this method, you begin improvising from the very beginning. Like in the first lesson. Soon improvising becomes natural and easy for you.
You understand how the jazz puzzle works. And you know exactly which piece comes next. (In fact, this method literally lays out the steps to take.)
You will no longer feel stressed out when it’s your turn to blow. In fact you’ll be able to blow in all twelve keys and easily make the changes.
Perhaps best of all, you’ll see the path to playing real jazz laid out before you. And you’ll know exactly how to go down that path.
Instead of a practice plan that reads “Practice Jazz” you’ll know exactly what you gotta do in the shed and how to do it. You’ll actually see yourself getting better each day.
Pretty soon, you’ll be invited to play sessions, sit in at jams and eventually even start getting called for the gig.
"I remember that on our first piano lesson, Joel asked me to improvise, but I could barely play. Now I feel I can improvise melodically and not be frustrated like I used to be. I recently played with some other students at a jam session, and everyone said I sound so good!"
"It is safe to say that I am a better player and improviser today because of Joel and that studying with him led to my acceptance at Conservatory and a decision to start a career in music. Now, as a gigging musician, we still keep in touch as colleagues and I consider him a great inspiration and mentor."
