"How To Unlock The Hidden Secrets Of The Greatest Jazz Improvisers"
If you want to be a great jazz improviser and don't want to pay thousands of dollars for lessons then this will be the most important message you're ever going to hear.
Dear Piano Friend,
I still remember the horror.
I was invited to my friend's party to jam with his musician buddies for the first time.
I’d heard about these legendary parties before.
I knew there was going to be a ton of musicians there that I’d like to impress.
I wanted to sound great & finally show people that I deserved to be in the “in crowd.”
About an hour after I arrived at the party I was invited on stage. My big moment was finally here.
My Real Life Horror Story
As I walked on stage I asked them what song they were playing. The guitar player said, “Don’t worry about it. Just use your ear and jam man!”
Wait! What? Oh no!
They played the first few notes and immediately my nerves starting taking over.
And a few measures later it became abundantly clear how unprepared I was as a musician.
They were running up and down their instruments and playing freely. Making great music in the moment.
And all I could do was just play a few boring patterns that I had practiced. They didn’t even fit that well!
They were creative with their instruments and I felt like I was just stuck in a box. I ran out of ideas right away. I was clearly missing critical things in my playing.
It all came to a crashing halt when they pointed at me to take a solo. All eyes were on me and in my moment of attention I bombed horribly. I’d never been more embarrassed.
Why Jazz Pianists Fail
You see, I had been trying to teach myself jazz piano for 3 years.
But it was so obvious now that what I was practicing was absolutely the wrong stuff.
I was playing the same old cliche licks. You know the ones that everybody’s heard 1000 times before?
My chops, my chords, my licks, my ear, my scales, were not where they needed to be either.
Worst of all, my improvisation was a disaster.
The 1 Ingredient All Jazz Musicians Must Master
I mean, jazz is an art form built on improvisation and I had completely neglected this in my practice!
My horrible improvisation skills had just ruined the whole night.
I even looked out in the crowd and I saw a few people laughing at me.
After the song was over, I limped away from the keyboard and immediately left the party. How could I show my face again?
I was so depressed that I didn’t leave the house for 2 weeks. It was horrible.
How One Concert Changed My Life
Jazz Legend George Benson
It had been 2 weeks since that awful night when I received a phone call from my friend Tommy.
Tommy invited me to a George Benson concert to try and cheer me up.
At this point I was plain desperate. I needed inspiration in anyway that i could get it. So, I reluctantly agreed.
I was just getting out of the house to try and cheer myself up but this small decision proved to be a life changing moment.
How I Met My Jazz Piano Mentor David Garfield
Jazz Piano Genius David Garfield
It’s funny how listening to great music sometimes can heal your soul. Because that night was special.
Yes, George was good.
But, what truly blew my mind was the inspiring playing of his keyboard player David Garfield.
I’d never heard anybody play jazz piano like that in my life. If I can be honest. David Garfield stole the show!
David had the audience rocking in their seats every time he took a solo.
From the licks, to the chops, to the chords, it was some of the deepest jazz improvisation I’d ever heard.
And David's playing was super soulful and from the heart. I was spellbound.
What Does It Take To Be A Great Jazz Improviser?

I was so inspired by David's amazing playing that I did something very bold.
I desperately had to learn how he was doing it.
After the gig was over I walked up to David and asked him if he would teach me.
I knew this was crazy. And the chances were probably 1 in a million.
You see players like David rarely reveal their secrets. And certainly not to players who weren’t already in the exclusive club of ‘real musicians’.
When Legends Need A Pianist This Is Who They Call
I mean David was playing piano for many of the biggest legends in the music industry.
People like George Benson, Freddie Hubbard, David Sanborn, Natalie Cole, Manhattan Transfer, Don Henley, Eddie Van Halen, Michael McDonald Boz Scaggs, Cher, Michael Bolton, and so many other greats.
Reluctantly, I revealed to David my improvisation failures.
The pain and embarrassment I felt when I fell flat on my face in front of other musicians.
He must have saw the look of desperation in my face. And to my shock he agreed to teach me.
It was truly an incredible stroke of luck for me!
You see when David agreed to mentor me I began a 10 year journey that revolutionized my musical life.
My improvisation improved beyond my wildest imagination.
How I Revolutionized My Jazz Improvisation
Armed with my new skills, I finally started to pick up some local gigs.
They went great and word started getting out about how much I had improved my playing.
Next thing I know I was gigging 5 nights a week in some of the hottest clubs in Chicago.
I was finally playing with some of the best musicians in the city.
It felt amazing but it didn’t stop there...
Within 4 years I was touring nationally. A few years after that I was:
- Touring around the world (14 different countries in 2 years)
- Appearing on TV (NBC, ABC, & WGN)
- Playing on radio (NPR & WLUP)
- Even playing with Grammy Award Winners (Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, etc.)
My transformation was amazing!
Yes, I practiced smart, but David's incredible training pushed my playing to levels I could only dream of.
Top L.A. Pianist Tours With 6 Time Grammy Award Winner
In 2017, David’s career took off even more.
Not only was he the musical director for George Benson but he also started gigging with legendary saxophone player David Sanborn.
(Yes, the 6 Time Grammy Award Winning Jazz Superstar.)
So, with a busy touring schedule David's availability was virtually non existent.
Short supply went to no supply!
This was very bad news for jazz improvisation education.

Time To Unlock A Lifetime Of Jazz Improvisation Secrets
I couldn’t stand the thought that all those amazing jazz improvisation secrets were now essentially ‘locked away’.
I knew I had to do something about it. So, I was compelled to share all the life changing musical discoveries I had learned from him with as many people as possible.
So, this spring, I flew David to our studio in Chicago.
