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.
