Triads For Life

Practical strategies, tips, and trick to help you learn and master the most fundamental skill to true improvisation - melodic voice leading

From baroque to bebop to modern jazz, triads and voice leading are critical
Together we will get you to transcend "outlining" changes, noodling inside of scales, and regurgitating riffs, and to start spontaneously voice leading your way through jazz forms focused on major and minor 2 5 1s and the Autumn Leaves changes

Learn to combine the concept of quadratonics presented in our Intro course with the triad voice leading skill from Triads For Life to create authentic, improvised, personal jazz vocabulary
Start IMPLYING the changes with melodic phrases and never feel trapped or imprisoned to simply outlining or running the chords
Understand how to take advantage of both the basic, root structure AND upper structure triads to imply the changes and improvise over jazz standards in a melodic way that still respects the harmony

Chords For Life

Stop wasting decades worrying about finding the hippest voicings but having no idea how to become a harmonic storyteller with them
Together we will break down and demystify the art of comping into its most basic and fundamental elements - groove & movement
Discover practical and specific ways of improving these elements to help you create spontaneous harmonic routes through tunes that will excite the soloists, the band, and the audience
Break free from the real book changes, stop predictably playing the same exact chords chorus after chorus... and start ACCOMPANYING!

Forms For Life

Let's start applying all of our melodic triads concepts for improv & comping to three of the most important forms in jazz and bebop
After discussing how the traditional blues evolved into bebop, we will focus on soloing and comping over the bird blues form, the rhythm changes form, and the cherokee form
After showing you how to simplify these challenging forms, I will then give you tips and tricks to imply complexity within them
You will master them NOT ONLY in their original keys, but also gain the ability to transpose them into all 12 keys for improvising and comping
