Many teaching techniques are used by our instructors, ranging from high tech computer software to educational media examples to more traditional music learning and practice aides.
For my beginning students, I use common rock and blues songs for the student to learn fundamentals such as single note lines, chords, simple scales in addition to basic music reading. With more advanced students I use a variety of materials that are tailored to the individual student.
Improvisation skills are developed through the study of jazz theory and ear development. Lessons may include the use of computer generated rhythm tracks and other music software.
I use many traditional and conceptual musical practice and performance methods, some of which are described in great detail in my book “Hip 251 Progressions”.
