Melodic Triads Study Group Membership

The most in depth triad-based approach to jazz to help you unlock and demystify advanced harmony and melody and bring your playing to the next level!




What You'll Get:

✅ 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.


✅ Forms For Life

In this course we will apply all of the melodic triads concepts we've discussed so far and apply them to the three most foundation forms for jazz and bebop - the bird blues, rhythm changes, and cherokee. Along with learning to simplify and master these forms, comp and improvise over each of them, and quickly move them into any key, we also take the fundamentals of melodic triads even further by discussing tricks to creating bluesy, soulful phrases with triads as well as melodic triad scales. 


✅ The Tonality Vault

15 in-depth upper structure triads studies. These go into all of the different melodic triads techniques and concepts we can use to take a simple triad and create harmonic and melodic vocabulary reminiscent of the style of musicians like Bill Evans and Kurt Rosenwinkel. Incredibly hip and modern, yet rooted deeply in the fundamentals and most basic elements of music... triads and shell voicings. Dozens of hours of video, hundreds of pages of PDF studies, countless examples (standard notation and tab) of application to jazz standards.


✅ Three monthly open office hours with me where you can ask questions in real time - archived to watch anytime


✅ Discounts on Skype lessons and Bootcamp programs


The Underground 

Our private melodic triads mastermind group... like an online jazz club where we listen to music, talk about theory, developing our ears, melodic triads, and just hang. You can get answers to your question and clear up confusions on anything melodic triads related. Chat and share videos with me and all of our other members in a supportive and encouraging environment


 ✅ Our app to let you access all of our premium resources, videos, pdf study books, courses, Bootcamp programs, and The Underground directly on your mobile devices

✅ Access to our future phase 2 courses where we will focus on studying and applying melodic triads to jazz standards

✅ Access to our future phase 3 courses where we will dig deeper into more advanced melodic triad techniques.




 

What Musicians Are Saying:

“Technical stuff such as sequences, scale practice, shape systems... there are so many books out there. But I really like that [Jordan] puts it on a much more phenomenological area of expertise, so you get to understand what sound means, emotionally. To me that's much better than all of these books and methods you find all over the internet. This is much more personal and to the core of what music is. [Jordan] really helped me open up a new world, and we're continuing to explore that. I can highly recommend Jordan.”

Claus Strom

“After years of studying with many of the jazz legends of our time Jordan has taken all the knowledge he has acquired, reduced it to its essence, and developed it into his own personal system of approaching improvisation. I find his method absolutely refreshing and so much closer to how the great improvisers are thinking and practicing than the traditional chord/scale, university approach to teaching improvisation. It’s given me a whole new and fresh outlook on how to hear things and what to practice”

Tommy Howard

“Jordan Klemons is an agile, forward thinking guitarist, fluent in the language of Jim Hall and John Scofield. His solos bristle with intense rhythmic drive and melodic invention.”

Brad Shepik

“[Jordan] is a great guitarist with unlimited potential. His prodigious technique is never an end in itself but instead the means to musical expression. He... looks to the past for inspiration and influence yet has a modern conception; he is someone to lookout and listen for!”

Peter Bernstein
