Digging Deeper Jazz Workshop (4 classes) - $120
*IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a one-time purchase for all 4 classes (please see schedule below). The purchase of this package is dated for March 4, 2021 because that is when the series of 4 classes begins. To sign up for ALL FOUR classes, please select MARCH 4TH to complete your registration.*

It’s a crazy time in human history. Musicians all over the world are not jamming, not going to concerts, not attending their rehearsals, and not getting to connect with each other. It’s a sad time for many of us. Music, and especially jazz, is an "in-the-moment" kind of thing. It requires a push and pull, an engaged communication. Let’s keep our music rolling with Digging Deeper Jazz Workshops.

Each workshop includes prep work sent out in advance (videos and written material). There are also plenty of opportunities for follow-up and staying connected with Jeff and with each other after the workshop. Prepare to have fun, learn a ton, and meet some amazing musicians like yourself from around the world.

March 4 - Altered Triad Pairs
March 11 - Rhythm, Time, & Groove
March 18 - Playing "Out" With Pentatonics
Match 25 - Arranging For Jazz Small Group

I’ve done these workshops over the past year in various cities around the USA and Canada, and now I’m thrilled to open them up to adult amateur and semi-pro musicians across the world. Our “Live and Online” Zoom conference format is something I’ve used extensively, and it works fantastically for this type of class interaction.

How It Works:
We get together on a video call, where everyone can see and hear each other. I send you a little information and a video ahead of time to help you get ready (if you choose to do so). And then, we dig in. I share the concepts for the workshop of the day, and then I play for you, AND you have the opportunity to play for me. We ask and answer questions, and it’s an interactive experience where you can be heard, be supported in your practice, and leave inspired.

Timing:
The workshop is from 1pm - 2:15pm EST (New York Time). The good news is that if you can’t join us for the entire class, we can send you the recording or the workshop, along with all of the material we’ll cover.

Nuts and Bolts:
The workshops are a maximum of 15 participants, so that we can really have some good quality time together. The audio and video from the workshop will be shared with you afterwards, so you can refer back to the workshop whenever you like. Our participants find incredible value in the Digging Deeper Jazz Workshops, and I’m thrilled to be able to offer them to you.

Cancellation Policy:
This is a limited offer and availability is on a first-come, first-served basis. If you need to cancel at any time, for any reason, you will not be refunded, but 1) we are happy to send you the recording of the workshops, or 2) you may have the opportunity to apply a credit toward a future workshop. With specific questions or needs regarding this policy and/or service, please email us at diggingdeeperjazz@gmail.com.
Digging Deeper Jazz Online Workshop March 4th, 1 - 2:15pm EST - Altered Triad Pairs - $35
The exciting concept of Triad Pairs is a great way to get new sounds and ideas into our playing very quickly, and very effectively. This DDJ Workshop is centered on Triad Pairs that get us sounding great on altered dominant chords. If you get hung up with all the #9’s, b13’s, and the rest of the chord extensions, this workshop is for you!

Digging Deeper Jazz Online Workshop - March 11, 1 - 2:15pm EST - Rhythm, Time, & Groove - $35
There is nothing more important to develop as a jazz player than having strong Rhythm and Time. And to be a high end player, we need to Groove too!

Digging Deeper Jazz Online Workshop - March 18, 1 - 2:15pm EST - Playing "Out" With Pentatonics - $35
Playing more advanced sounds is something that most jazz musicians get into as they progress, but how do we go about adding those new colors to our jazz palette? There are a confusing number of approaches, and many of them are complicated and can take years to master. Working with pentatonics is a tried-and-true way to get things moving, and moving quickly. This DDJ Workshop will show to a complete path to getting up and running with some of those classic “outside” sounds.

Digging Deeper Jazz Online Workshop - March 25, 1 - 2:15pm EST - Arranging For Jazz Small Group - $35
How does a jazz small group, a quartet or quintet, put together a professional sounding arrangement, very often right on the spot? How do we create intros and endings, interesting textures and exciting rhythmic statements, all from a simple lead sheet? In this DDJ Workshop, we’ll analyze moments from a concert performed earlier in the year to use as our point of departure. You’ll leave this workshop with some great ideas for your next jam session, gig, or recording session!
