Visualization For Jazz Improvisation Discover how to learn chords, lines, and tunes faster than ever before

The Visualization For Jazz Improvisation Course

Do you ever wonder how professional jazz musicians seem to never get lost in the changes? Or how they know so many tunes by heart and can transpose these tunes on-the-fly to any key?

Well I wondered how this was possible for years and after studying and learning from literately all my heroes, I realized they had a whole lot of information in their head that I didn’t have.

And not only did they have this information in their head, but they had it in their on a such a deep level, that they didn’t have to think about it even a little bit to use it!

Now that was the big differentiator between them and me…

Sure, I knew a lot about jazz theory. I knew everything from my major scales to altered, but for some reason, I couldn’t seem to make use of this information when I improvised, and it all went back to this simple fact – all the information that you want to use when you improvise, has to be accessible with absolutely ZERO effort or thought.

Even a fraction of time spent thinking about a what chord is next, a specific chord-tone, or a scale can leave you in the dust and derail your improvisational flow. All of this has to be second-nature.

How do we actually get this information on such a deep level where we can use it effectively in real-time?

Enter Visualization

The technique of visualization is used by learners and leaders in many fields to gain mastery of information on a deep level. You see, your mind doesn’t know the difference between whether you doing something in real-life, or if you’re just “mentally rehearsing” the activity.

In fact, it’s much more efficient for your mind to teach your body, instead of your body teaching your mind.

By mentally rehearsing the elements of jazz improvisation that you’ll encounter over and over, you’re mind will build the necessary mental structures to understand and anticipate the musical information you wish to conjure up in real-time.

In this course, we’ve taken the powerful concepts and techniques of visualization, and applied them to the fundamentals of jazz improvisation.

Visualization for Jazz Improvisation is our course that will teach you how to turn music theory into something you can actually use.

Okay, so what’s audio doing in a visualization course?

That’s a great question…

Well, many people think they know their chords. I thought I did, and you probably think you do too. But the only way to truly test how well you know this essential material and the only way to practice it effectively, is by having limited time to react, just like when you improvise.

Using audio tracks in conjunction with visualization does just that – It FORCES you to visualize everything you’re learning in real-time, under pressure, just like you have to do when you improvise.

And the truth is, everyone, even professionals can know this information on a deeper level – no matter how advanced you get, there’s a higher level to be achieved, which is why this course is great for all levels, from beginner to advanced.

Let’s do a quick exercise so you can get a feel for what you’ll be doing throughout the course. I want you to sit back, relax, and think about a major chord. Aim to clearly see the chord symbol in your mind like this:

C Major

Got it? Excellent. You just visualized. Next, I want you to imagine major chords moving down in whole steps, like this:

Major Chords Down in Whole Steps

Can you see each chord in your mind as you move to each one without looking at the image above?

And finally, I want you to visualize each of these chords again, but this time, you’re going to use the accompanying audio track below, and no cheating by using the image – this has to all be done in your mind for it to have any benefit.

The first time you’ll hear me assist you by saying the chords, but as the track progresses, I’ll stop vocalizing all the chords and it will be up to you to keep visualizing the chords in time with the accompanying track. Occasionally you’ll hear me say one to make sure you’re still in the right spot.

A little more difficult, but a whole lot more fun, right? It’s also a ton more effective. Now, you can see where we’re going with this…

Once you begin to be able to visualize like this, the sky’s the limit. You can visualize all sorts of things from the simple to the complex – various root motions, chord-tones, chord-tone pairs, scale fragments, progressions and a ton more.

This exercise you just did was the tiniest taste of what’s inside…

And this course has been refactored from the ground up quite a few times – at this point it contains a lifetime of work. Once you go through the course, you can keep revisiting the information again and again, strengthening the mental and physical connections to the musical information.

Once you get the course, you have lifetime access and free updates, so you can be sure you have all the time you need to work through the information and exercises at your own pace.

It’s broken down into 7 lessons packed with everything you need…
