WHAT'S COVERED?

TARGETING
We will go step-by-step on how to build a great solo using targeting principles and techniques outlined in Targeting: Improvisation With Purpose and Breaking the Monotony.
MORE THAN JUST SCALES?

Is there more to improvising then just playing X scale over X chord? YES! We will talk about how you can use various tools to aim at targets to make a more creative and cohesive improvisation.

WHERE DO I START?

We put a plan of action together based off of your current knowledge and where you would like to be. We'll look at small goals as well as the big picture.

LESSON OPTIONS

Lesson options include 1/2 hour and full hour consultations. Discounts are available for those that do regular (minimum 3 lessons a month) lessons.

KEYS TO CONNECTION

We will look at how, where, and why to choose key targets. These targets help keep you from wandering and help keep your melodic lines connected.

THEORY?

We'll talk about theory too, but it's not necessary to get started.

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.

Pianist
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.

Trumpeter
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.
D. Anghis
Guitarist
Jason is one of the most professional teachers I've ever had. I feel like he has really set me up for success!
