Get access to:
✅ Intro to Melodic Triads
A course that will immediately open your ears to hearing melody in a different way. This is not interval ear training. This is learning to hear like a human being. Develop your ears and your personal relationship with all 12 of our pitches by digging DEEPER into the scale. Create a more lyrical and phrase based approach to improvisation.
✅ Triads For Life
Free yourself from riffs, scales, arpeggios, and 'outlining changes'. Learn to develop your vocabulary around triads and voice leading. Imply chord movement with one note. Re-map the fretboard with the most basic, fundamental there is in harmony and melody... the triad.
✅ Lines For Life
Combining the first two courses, here we will begin putting together phrase based improvisation we discussed in our Intro course with the triads and voice leading discussed in our Triads course. You will see how to develop spontaneous vocabulary that will fit with bebop, modern, swing, gypsy, and all other styles of jazz and just musical improvisation in general. Tons of riffs examples notated out. But you will learn how to never rely on another riff for the rest of your life.
✅ Chords For Life
Similar to the previous courses on melody, this course will break down harmony and comping to the most fundamental and simple elements, and then show you strategies for creating movement and excitement. We will be studying harmonic ideas that range from Bach all the way up to Kurt Rosenwinkel... but directly on the fretboard, and in the context of jazz tunes.
✅ Our Melodic Triads App
Access all of these courses from our website AND directly from your favorite mobile devices using our new app!
✅ Phase 2 courses will include deeper explorations of Melodic Triads by delving more into applying them to jazz standards and exploring how to use the fundamentals covered in the first few courses to create Bill Evans and Kurt Rosenwinkel-esque harmony and melody using upper structure triads.
