Why Are We Passionate About Playing Jazz (Story Time)?

So today, I’m gonna share with you some important points in my music life, like, the first thing I played with my first guitar when I got it, how that one, 7-note lick that my first pro jazz teacher taught me gave me a “light bulb” moment, and most importantly, the reason behind what is in music that resonates with me so much that keeps me passionate about it.

Before I’ll end this story, I’m gonna leave you with a challenge that would help keep that spark going that lights up your passion for discovering the jazz world.
