THE MINDFUL MUSIC METHOD

How To Use Mental Rehearsal To Nurture Your Aural Imagination; And Your Musical Memory...

...So You Can Find Your Own Sound And Experience The Freedom Of Letting Go And Playing By Ear.

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR

I want to talk to you today about what is hands-down one of the most important musical ideas you could ever learn. 

But first, have you ever thought to yourself:

  •  Why can’t I just get this jazz thing down?

  • Why does it come so easily for some cats, but not for me?

  • Why is my playing inconsistent and unreliable?

  • Why can I never think of what to play next?

  • Why can’t I just play what I hear in my head? My hands just won’t do what I want them to!

If so, I assure you that you are not alone. 

You see, most jazz education – and I mean everything from method books to theory classes to private lessons to YouTube videos – it’s all kind of setup backwards.

It’s overwhelming. It encourages mediocrity, lacks focus on the ear & the aural imagination, and it ensures that you develop major holes in your playing. So you never have a chance in hell at playing what you hear and feel.

The Sad Fact Is That Most Cats NEVER:

  • Acquire mastery of their instrument.
  • Learn how to play by ear
  • Understand how to feed their aural imagination

So, they’re destined to play half baked lines.

Their stuck having to THINK hard just to play a note or idea and so they struggle just to get through a solo.

Their music isn’t inspiring or exciting to listen to. It’s shaky at best.

And, playing music that way is just not fun – it’s frustrating as hell.

But when do short cuts ever work with music.

That’s why you and I have bookshelves full of method books and DVDs.

AND HERE'S THE BIG IRONY OF IT:

Learning Jazz The Right Way Is Actually The Fastest
And In Fact ONLY Way To Play Jazz.

With the right approach to playing you end up in an 'upward spiral of improvement'.

As you incorporate the right habits and strategies into your music routines you quickly learn and assimilate great music and the musical elements that you want to add to your playing.

As you add more and more of these elements and this vocabulary to your musical imagination, your ears grow stronger and your imagination grows faster and deeper.

Then you can learn and grow as a player even more quickly. And you start to really enjoy the process.

Well, I’m excited to tell you that after ~20 years of struggling myself – after working on too many books, abstract exercises and ‘physical’ music I finally discovered the one truth I had been missing for all those years.

And after a ton of trial and error practice and hard work I’ve developed a system to approach music the right way.

So you strengthen your ear-body-instrument connection.

So music literally becomes easy.

So it becomes fun again.

So it becomes natural and unbelievably fulfilling.

So your playing starts to turn heads on the bandstand.

And so cats start to respect you and dig your playing.

Imagine finding out that other musicians are talking about how good you sound behind your back instead of the alternative.

Pretty cool;)

When you learn how to tap into the incredible power of your musical imagination and the awesome power of mental rehearsal you unlock your musical talent. And Become a Monster Jazz Musician.

"I’ve been a fan of Hal Crook’s books and method. Chris’ videos are the next step to reinforce how to practice improvisation that compliment these books. ….a great addition to a jazzer’s library of learning …but more practical than most books that try to help you to play jazz."

John Kozinski
Becket, MA

"The Monster Jazz Formula for me has been a delightful approach in learning the basics of creation, awareness and deep inner feelings, thank you very much"

Armando Salazar
Quito, Ecuador, South America

"Your knowledge is great, but on top of that, it is the way you present that makes it unique. You do not make any tricks or give away half-hearted information and I have learned a lot from your materials. It is great that you cover up the mental topics as well, not just technical stuff. We are lucky to be able to wade through your methods!"

Bruno T.
Slovakia

"I’ve gone through a few of Chris’ courses. The concepts in here are essential to mastering your instrument. I struggle with knowing what to practice from the wealth of information that there is. Using the Monster Jazz Formula, I’ve made more progress in the last couple months than at any other time. I’ve also gained confidence in playing which feels great…Thanks Chris!"

Troy H.
B.C. Canada

"I have been playing for over 45 years, and have studied with some of the world’s best teachers. But as a teacher I see students become overwhelmed with the amount of available information and what to do with it in the limited hours of a day. Your systems allow for individualized pinpoint focus…This is something that I have never found taught in the field of music before, and I swear by your material…keep it up!"

Chuck Decker
South Jersey

"You have a direct and genuine approach to the development and sharing of knowledge which makes the medicine go down with great ease. It is satisfying to have a kind of jazz-practice guardian-angel!"

Liam Fionescu
London, England

"After millions of methods about WHAT to study, finally a method that lets you understand HOW to study to reach your real musical goals! Thank you Chris!"

Maurizio Iosa
