Get started

That’s right, you probably saw the title of this video. I did, indeed, learn 100 jazz standards in one year in one point in my life.

And while I wouldn’t necessarily advocate learning that many jazz standards so quickly to any of my students, the important thing is learning lots of jazz standards will help you learn all musical lessons you need to know about jazz and learning how to improvise over jazz standards.

So, in today’s video, I would like to share some of the lessons that I learned from learning 100 tunes and how we can learn jazz standards better and get more out of them.
