“I reviewed this course yesterday, all I can say is WOW… Very, very well defined and methodical. It will definitely take some practice to accomplish, but I am looking forward to really dedicating my time to this material. I liked the way that you went from the basic concepts and built on them. I am already looking forward to the expanded, more advanced improv courses!” - Chuck, U.S.A.

It has over 60 minutes of video lessons where you’ll watch the the step-by-step instructions for understanding The Three Pillars of Improvisation as well as mastering the first pillar on common jazz harmony. In the end, you’ll be a master at playing 100% accurate notes while improvising on standard chord progressions.
