You’ve learned about the modes for years - but somehow Dorian, Lydian, Locrian - these groupings of notes with their strange names haven’t quite MADE SENSE for you - until now. Let’s go beyond music theory and talk about how these modes make you feel - what emotions they evoke and how you can use them in your own composition and improvising.
Teaching in master classes, clinics and YouTube
Aimee is quickly becoming a highly sought after educator in the jazz community, since launching her YouTube channel, Aimee Nolte Music. She spent a 10 day stint as an instructor for the renowned vocal coach David Braid's VocalizeU camp in Malibu during the summer of 2016 and has appeared as a featured artist/clinician/adjudicator at numerous jazz festivals around the country, including Univeristy Of Northern Michigan, Fullerton College, South Plains College, The Hilton Head Jazz Camp and BYU School of Music University of Mary in Bismark, ND, as well as many online masterclass engagements during the pandemic. Aimee continues to teach clinics and master classes to students who want to learn to scat sing like serious jazz musicians, and players who want to take their improvisation game to the next level.
Each day for 30 days, I released a new “piano yoga” video in the hopes that we can explore key areas of music theory and get to know the piano better together.
