Instructional Mission Statement
A proactive approach to instruction that opens up your playing to the next level. Instruction aimed to developing the ability to perform with anyone, in any venue, in any style, necessary for success within the contemporary music scene.

Those who apply themselves can benefit from:

  • Jazz Studies for 2 & 3 way independence (Swing, Bop and Post Bop) "Comping"
  • Concepts of Improvisational Fills & Solos (beyond the clichés)
  • Ostinato and Polyrhythmic Concepts
  • Develop a “time-center” with & without a click

  • Odd Meters, Groove Construction
    Implied Time, Beat-Displacement, Orchestration Concepts
  • and more...
