The Mindful Music Method

How To Use You Mental Rehearsal To Nurture Your Aural Imagination; And Your Musical Memory...

So You Can Find Your Own Sound And Experience The Freedom Of Letting Go And Playing By Ear.

Greetings Fellow Jazzer!

I want to talk to you today about what is hands-down the most important musical idea you could ever learn.

I know that might sound a little crazy or even far-fetched. I thought the same thing until I tried it for myself.

Now, if you’ve ever thought to yourself “why can’t I just get this jazz thing down?

Why does it come so easily for some cats, but not for me?”

If you’re fed up with your playing being inconsistent and unreliable… And always trying to figure out what to play next…

Or if you’ve ever wondered “Why can’t I just play what I hear in my head? My hands just won’t do what I want them to!”

Then what I’m about to share with you could change your playing forever.

First of all, I want to assure you that you are not alone. In fact I bet you and I have lot in common. I struggled for a long time with those same challenges.

If you’re Not Where You Want
To Be With Your Music,
Don’t Worry, It’s Not Your Fault.

And it’s never too late.

You see, most jazz education – and I mean everything from method books to theory classes to private lessons to YouTube videos – it’s all kind of set up to make you fail.

It’s overwhelming. It encourages mediocrity and it ensures that you develop major holes in your playing. So you never have a chance in hell at playing what you hear and feel.

The Sad Fact Is That Most Cats NEVER
Get Key Musical Skills In Place.

So, they’re destined to play half baked lines. And to have to think hard and struggle just to get through a solo. Their music isn’t inspiring or exciting to listen to. It’s shaky at best.

And, playing music that way is just not fun – it’s frustrating as hell.

I’m not saying there is some kind of conspiracy here. But, the fact is that the music education business is big business. And it’s a lot easier to sell books full of patterns, theory and exercises then to teach how the masters did it. These things are sold as the short cuts to playing jazz.

But when do short cuts ever work with music.

That’s why you and I have bookshelves full of method books and DVDs.

And here’s the big irony of it all:

Learning Jazz The Right Way Is Actually The Fastest And In Fact ONLY Way To Play Jazz.

With the right approach to playing you end up in a sort of upward spiral of improvement.

As you use the right approach to playing you quickly learn and assimilate great music and the musical elements that you want to add to your playing.

As you add more and more of these elements and this vocabulary to your musical imagination, your ears grow stronger and your imagination grows faster and deeper.

Then you can learn and grow as a player even more quickly. And you start to really enjoy the process.

Contrast that with the downward spiral of frustration that you might be caught in.

As you try to learn more music with your hands instead of with your brain and ears, the gap between your ears and your fingers grows wider and wider.

As you learn more and more theory without ever assimilating it into your musical imagination the gap between your intellectual understanding of music and your ears grows wider and wider.

As that gap grows wider you get farther and farther away from real creative music.

Your music becomes more and more stiff and boring. And you start to lose that passion you had way back when you first fell in love with music.

Well, I’m excited to tell you that after 20 years of struggling myself – after working on too many books, abstract exercises and ‘physical’ music I finally discovered the one truth I had been missing for all those years.

And after a ton of trial and error practice and hard work I’ve developed a system to approach music the right way.

eight-note-bulletSo you strengthen your ear-body-instrument connection.

eight-note-bulletSo music literally becomes easy.

eight-note-bulletSo it becomes fun again.

eight-note-bulletSo it becomes natural and unbelievably fulfilling.

eight-note-bulletSo your playing starts to turn heads on the bandstand.

Aeight-note-bulletnd so cats start to respect you and dig your playing.

Imagine finding out that other musicians are talking about how good you sound behind your back instead of the alternative.

Pretty cool.

When you learn how to tap into the incredible power of your musical imagination and the awesome power of mental rehearsal you unlock your musical talent. And Become a Monster Jazz Musician.

John Kozinski – Becket, MA

“The Monster Jazz Formula for me has been a delightful approach in learning the basics of creation, awareness and deep inner feelings, thank you very much”

Armando Salazar – Quito, Ecuador, South America

“Your knowledge is great, but on top of that, it is the way you present that makes it unique. You do not make any tricks or give away half-hearted information and I have learned a lot from your materials. It is great that you cover up the mental topics as well, not just technical stuff. We are lucky to be able to wade through your methods!”

Bruno T., Slovakia

“I’ve gone through a few of Chris’ courses. The concepts in here are essential to mastering your instrument. I struggle with knowing what to practice from the wealth of information that there is. Using the Monster Jazz Formula, I’ve made more progress in the last couple months than at any other time. I’ve also gained confidence in playing which feels great…Thanks Chris!”

Troy H. – B.C. Canada

“I have been playing for over 45 years, and have studied with some of the world’s best teachers. But as a teacher I see students become overwhelmed with the amount of available information and what to do with it in the limited hours of a day. Your systems allow for individualized pinpoint focus…This is something that I have never found taught in the field of music before, and I swear by your material…keep it up!

Chuck Decker – South Jersey

“You have a direct and genuine approach to the development and sharing of knowledge which makes the medicine go down with great ease. It is satisfying to have a kind of jazz-practice guardian-angel!
