Welcome to episode 195 of the LJS Podcast where today I go over a jazz practice plan in a series of two episodes we’ll be going through. This practice plan is called the Stair Step Practice Plan, and this has been highly effective for students in my 30 Steps to Better Jazz Playing course, which uses this exact framework.
Listen to episode 195If you know anything about what I teach here on Learn Jazz Standards it’s that if we want to become better jazz musicians, it comes down to practicing.
It’s not about fancy music theory tricks that we learn. It’s not about special licks and knots. It’s not about any hacks or shortcuts. It all comes down to practicing.
And it’s not just practicing a lot. It is practicing in a goal-oriented, effective way that will actually produce results.
So, over the next couple of episodes, I’m going to be sharing with you 2 different practice plans that I believe are highly effective, that I use in my courses, and that worked for my students, that have worked for me as well.
So in today’s episode, we’ll be going over the Stair Step Practice Plan. I’m going to go in-depth with how it works, what you need to do to actually take action on it.
In this episode:
1. 3 Topics worked on in the practice plan
2. Batching and why it works
3. Overview of the Stair Step Practice Plan
I look forward to having you join me in the next episode!
