Chord Melody From the Ground Up

Advanced Solo Jazz Guitar Performance (5 week segments) 

Special advanced class available by invitation only

If you’re an experienced and/or professional jazz guitarist, challenge yourself to develop and master new language and repertoire through identifying then performing it every week, Take creative risks and get comfortable with feeling uncomfortable to better assimilate intricate and inspiring skills quickly.  Mastery and ease come from playing your way forward in spite of feeling vulnerable or imperfect. Bringing challenging material to performance level requires openness paired with hard work. Practice active listening, then give and receive constructive criticism among a group of high-level peers. Take the “solitary” out of solo playing through collaborating in this high level virtual round table mastermind group.

Fridays from 12-1:30pm, 90 Minutes
Dates will run
Total cost for 15 weeks is $550

Each participant will have the opportunity to design a personalized program and goals to work from over the 5 weeks in every meeting. Your program will include a repertoire of up to 5 tunes (not more that one per week, but can be one tune for the course) and a list of relevant concepts you’ll  design to support playing whatever material, on a next level you would find inspiring.

As your guide and moderator, I will consult you on your stated goals, then provide approaches to practice and performance through my presentations and performances in the group, and through offering constructive feedback on your performances.

We will further explore advanced harmony, chord voicing, chord substitution, inner voice and bass line movement, texture and density, groove, meters and form. Then we will apply these concepts to designing arrangements of tunes, creating improvisations and practicing helpful exercises . We’ll also dive deep into presentation and musicality—how to be dynamic and expressive and use any or all of the above tools to create compelling performances!

Join the class live or watch the recordings and participate on your own schedule!
