My mission in life is to spread music and all the benefits it brings to us. YOU are tired of playing the same old kinds of stuff. You know there is this body of "Music Theory" knowledge that would add some fantastic tools in your brain. But learning "all those scales" or "how to UNDERSTAND notes" that you have "read", or how to count out (and FEEL) rhythms you have NEVER SEEN BEFORE from staff notation, can seem impossible to conquer when that study is approached from a confusing angle. That is why I wrote my first book: "USING MUSIC THEORY" © 1990 . If you have tackled playing tunes like "Ceora" or "Joy Spring" in "The Real Book", then you might have encountered a couple glitches in your knowledge. Those tunes have a ton of chords, scales, key changes, weird rhythms, etc. To play and improvise with a rich maturity requires one's having studied Melody, Rhythm, and Harmony. That requires LIVE listening and creating, and discovering IF you are really playing what your ears WANT you to play next. Otherwise, here we go with the same old stuff, same old patterns, same old songs. Darn it!!! BTW: The "catch" is that I can "fire" you as a student at any point. But if you show up and try your best I promise to blow your mind with really practical and useful Theory ideas. Hit me up!!!
