Learning Jazz doesn't have to
be a pain

With the endless amount of information on the internet, it's always a daunting task to know how to proceed, let alone know where to start.  

Our school takes a "song first" approach by teaching a student how to analyze and break down tunes and their relevant scales, and chords.  Learning this skill sets students up for success for building a repertoire of tunes they can perform on their own, or at jazz jam sessions.

Gain performance experience at our recitals

Many students of jazz often have a desire to join their nearest jazz jam session, however are nervous due to lack of performance experience in front of others.  

Preparing and performing tunes at our recitals twice a year is a great way to get your feet wet with performing, and is a great stepping stone to begin to start to attend jam sessions

"I have been taking jazz lessons from Ryan for about three months. Ryan's teaching methods are excellent, especially for someone who is just getting started with jazz.


He focuses on learning songs and improvisation intuitively, while also explaining the theory behind what he is teaching.
