Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your books with me. I love the approach and think you did an incredible job putting it together. Man...I wish something like this was available to me when I was in high school!

Jazz Brain Training is a unique combination:

First is an inspirational essay that describes

Mihaly Cziksentmihalyi’s theory of flow in

cognitive states and applies it to the the

improvising student.  

I am excited to see how this approach integrates 

into young (and not-so-young) musicians’ training.

I have been reading Jazz Brain Training.  Super insightful and inspiring!  

It is fabulous that you continue to pass

along your great ideas and encouragement

to the students!
