How These 4 Elements Transformed My Pro Career

jazz piano teacherI’ve played over 1700 gigs in my career so far. From years of tours around the world, backing up Grammy Award winners (Koko Taylor, Buddy Guy, etc. etc.), studio work, church work, clubs, concert halls, festivals, arranging, to playing local gigs, cocktail hours.

I’ve even played on boats, private airplanes, Bar Mitzvahs, and at communes. Jazz gigs, rock gigs, country gigs, blues gigs, church, metal, etc. etc.

You name it, I’ve probably done it.

The crazy part is that EVERYTHING I’ve done on the pro level can be boiled down to using at least 1 of these 4 skills. Get great at these things and you get great at piano. Period!

Now, why hasn’t your jazz piano teacher taught you how to master these 4 elements before?

The Piano Teacher Epidemic Effecting You

jazz piano teacherThere’s an epidemic in the jazz piano education world these days. Ready for it?

98% of jazz piano teachers have very little real world performance experience. 

Maybe they have a degree (if you’re lucky) but not too much more.

These jazz piano teachers are not out in the real world, performing, testing ideas on the biggest stages, seeing what works in front of audiences. Most teachers are just learning from reading a couple books and that’s it.

So, they’re trying to teach the art form by guessing. They might no a couple tricks but they have no idea what it really takes to succeed with jazz piano in the real world.

And their students suffer as a result of their lack of experience.

How You Can Work With A World Class Jazz Piano Teacher

online piano teacherIn the last 7 years I’ve had the pleasure to work with over 600,000 students in our programs. Many of these students had worked with teachers in the past before they came to us.

But, because their teachers weren’t masters of these 4 elements and their teachers weren’t full time pro players, they came to us missing HUGE things in there playing.

And so that’s exactly why we created The Jazz Inner Circle Program.

We knew 98% of students weren’t getting the type of world class jazz education they needed to play the type of jazz that turns head and audiences LOVE to hear.

I mean it’s a simple but powerful concept. But, it’s 100% truth.

If you want to become great at jazz piano, you’ll need to learn from a mentor who’ve had proven success.

That’s why in the Jazz Inner Circle program we’ve created an all star cast of mentors.

We have mentors who are Grammy Nominated, world touring, in the Blues Hall of Fame, teachers at Berklee, best selling jazz piano course authors, top level studio musicians, sidesmen to the stars, etc. etc.

And the best part is that you can work with 1 on 1 with a world class jazz piano mentor in the comfort of your own home. That means you don’t have to waste hours every month driving or flying.

And you get access to the same level of instructors you’d get at a prestigious jazz piano conservatory.

How To Apply For The Jazz Inner Circle Program

If you’d like us to work with you 1-on-1 and help you double your playing skills, build breathtaking performances, master the best chords, scales, songs, & revolutionize your improv skills over the next 12 months then you can apply for the Jazz Inner Circle Program right here.
