Why I Stopped Hating My Jazz Playing and So Should You

"Zero to Improv"

Get started

In today’s video I get a little bit vulnerable, and share with you how I overcame and continue to overcome something a lot of musicians struggle with.

Many musicians are constantly beating themselves about their playing. It’s always not good enough, or not as good as the other musician they are playing with.

The result of this kind of self-depreciation is anxiety, frustration, and even a loss of the enjoyment of playing music.

I tell you my story, how I turned things around, and how I look at myself and music now. Can you relate?
