WHAT THEY SAY...
Before my lessons with Jason, I had spent a lot of time studying music theory with limited knowledge on how to apply what I had learned to my piano playing. I sought out various teachers for help, however, the instructors I interviewed felt there was nothing they could contribute to my musical journey. How frustrating it was for me until I happen to talk to Jason who welcomed me in as an adult student. After I started studying with Jason he was able to teach me music theory in a concise, practical manner. I have learned how to apply various principles, thoroughly understanding how to break down a song, exercises that allow me to learn songs quickly, tips on soloing, ear training, and rhythm. I have enjoyed studying with Jason, he is very patient, knowledgable, listens and he's a gifted and well-rounded musician.
Jason's Targeting method has opened up a whole new way of thinking about Jazz improv for me. Before it was just scales (i.e. this scale over that chord), but his way of presenting targeting has made it a lot easier for me.
Jason Klobnak is a consummate professional. With a wide range of knowledge of all types of music, his talent drives him to be the best of what he does. I can honestly say that I am a better musician for having the privilege of learning from him.
Jason is one of the most professional teachers I've ever had. I feel like he has really set me up for success!
