Chances are, if you're a beginning jazzer, you don't swing yet. You may think that you do... but you probably don't yet! I was once you. This is how I learned to swing. Hope it helps all you future swingin cats.
Taking the tune, Summertime, we discuss what a "2 feel" is, and how the different players of the rhythm section go about playing it, and when to use it. Also shown, is an accompaniment style for playing this tune.
This is one of my favorite standards. I really had a nice time playing this one. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for your support and for subscribing and sharing with your friends! Aimee Nolte
A couple of months ago, my student, Matthew Goldberg showed me a piano piece he had written, called "For A Little While." He's on the east coast and I teach him via Skype. Our lessons consist of him showing me a pdf of some composition he is working on, and me telling him what's good about it, and what could be better.
This is just a fun game to play to drive yourself and those around you crazy, and hopefully teach you something in the meantime.
It's going to scare you to death and NOBODY EVER TALKS ABOUT IT

Part of being a good musician is recognizing all the parts of music; every component that goes into making what we love. Rhythm is a huge part of that. Practicing drumming exercises is one of my favorite ways to expand the musician inside of me and I'd like to share some of my favorites with you!
The very talented, and classically-trained Brenda Martin (professor at Point Loma) and I sat down in her San Diego studio to have a lesson recently. The first half of the lesson was spent, discussing many facets of the blues. I decided (with Brenda's permission, of course) to share it with you!
