    Hey guys! I filmed a lesson I had with a student and decided to share some sections as I think some of the concepts could potentially provide some value to some of you guys. I hope it's helpful for those who are interested in improvisation.
    I explain a bit about consciously hitting chord tones and how to think about them in solfeggio!

    That’s a good lesson by a good teacher. In the past ten years I have tried about one different teacher a year, and never had one who showed me what your teacher is showing you. And it cost me a lot of money! All I got in every instance was a lot of talk, some printed sheets, and much music theory, which was important, but not what I needed at the time. I have learned more in the last 3 years from YT videos and DVDs by Damian Bacci, Steve Stine, and Marty Schwartz. Good on you for finding teacher who knows how to teach.
