The challenge facing ALL musicians is finding a Regular creative playing environment. Even as a professionals, I don’t experience growth from one or two isolated gigs. I do it by playing in regular groups year round. It is even more critical for you, the adult student, since you might have less playing experience than most professional musicians.
IF YOU WANT TO GET BETTER YOU HAVE TO PLAY OFTEN AND PUSH YOUR LIMITS
Make no mistake! I'm not ‘All Things for All People’!
I offer coaching in ear training, improvisation, theory, composition and arranging, but as part of being in the ensemble. You'll learn real-life skills that I use. I teach everything within the small group sessions so you can work out the concepts Then and There!
Nothing will replace private instrumental study, but playing in a regular small group is the path that can boost your level of musicianship.
Jersey Shore Jazz Workshop is the PLACE where you can APPLY that study.
Join me for the JSJW Hang!
