From My Students
"What began as long tone exercises at 7pm, ended three and a half hours later with me ad libbing on alto and bari to the backing tracks. This is the most fun I have ever had practicing. These lessons are more than I had hoped for."
"DONE! Both solos. What a great course. Started this course on May 2nd, so a little over 5 months to do absolutely everything right, in between work and travel. Worth every second! What an accomplishment! On to Blues Language!"
"Jay - this one is lots of fun and its confirmation that your method works! I can play all of them without thinking; all of the exercises have created a direct connection between the ears and the fingers without interference from the conscious part of the brain. Even better, I can see that your approach can be applied to any set of scales. Thanks so much!"
"Jay, you are truly the best teacher I have no regrets in joining the full suite of courses. Following your instructions and achieving at least 75% of each lesson was sufficient ot make me feel how much I have improved since I got my alto earlier this month. As you say in your videos, 15 mins a day of dedicated set time created this difference!"
"I must say the further I go into this course the more I am impressed with the process of teaching. I have been a drummer and guitar player for over 45 years, self taught, play in bands, learned clarinet as a kid but went no further. Introduced to sax at age 13 by an uncle who played professional but I was attracted to the drums instead. BUT now I love the sax, your method is making it easy... Thank you so much!"
"Thoroughly enjoyed the Pentatonic Foundation course. Didn't think it was possible to improve after years of bad habits, but your teaching method and exercises enabled me to be successful. Loved the backing tracks and ability to revisit lessons when needed. I'm going to enroll in your Blues Foundation course to continue these amazing and affordable lessons. Thanks Jay!"
"Thanks Jay, a great course. I will need to keep practicing the content but has taught me so much about improvising that I wish I had known nearly 60 years ago when it was impossible to get help like this."
"I joined the course because I really enjoyed and learned a lot from your free lessons. My subscription was to contribute to your funds in making more great videos. After going through the contents of your course, it turns out to be better than expected. Keep up the great job."
