"Zero to Improv"

Get started

Maybe you play rock, pop, hip-hop, folk, classical or any other style of music. Should you learn some jazz?

In this video, I go over 4 solid reasons why I think spending a little bit of time working on playing jazz can deliver some great benefits for your overall musicianship.

This doesn’t mean jazz musicians are off the hook from learning other styles of music (every style of music has something to teach us). But for those thinking about dipping your toes in the water, hopefully, this will push you over the edge!
