I began teaching this week from my new online studio in Augusta, Maine. It was tough to close my physical studio on Capitol Hill in Seattle (due to COVID-19) but I am so happy to continue working with all of my Seattle students online from the east coast!

It's official, my Seattle condo is on the market! I spent 13 years updating and upgrading this super solid mid-century unit from floor to ceiling into a practical, tasteful, modern home. I was initially drawn to this building because of the location; it's in a quiet section of First Hill, about a block away from Capitol Hill. We've already had a few showings and the feedback has been wonderful. Thanks in advance for giving it a look and a share!

Great opportunity to own a 1 br/1bth in the Manhattan condominium complex on First Hill, a rare concrete/steel building of only 49 units. Completely remodeled with bamboo hardwoods, all new kitchen cabinets & appliances, fixtures and a block from Whole Foods. $350,000. Secure building, NO rent cap! 1200 Boylston Ave #302.

Riley B. King (September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015), known professionally as B.B. King, was an American blues singer, electric guitarist, songwriter, and record producer. King introduced a sophisticated style of soloing based on fluid string bending and shimmering vibrato that influenced many later electric blues guitarists.

I've got some *BIG* news to share: My partner accepted a job in Augusta Maine, and since my studio has transitioned online for the foreseeable future, we've decided to move to the east coast this fall. How wild is that?!

I love Seattle, and I have absolutely loved teaching lessons and classes on Capitol Hill; my studio space was *truly* a dream come true. We might return to Seattle after the pandemic is over, but I'm not sure if/when I'll open another studio space because I have transitioned all lessons (and soon classes, too) online.

Before we head out, I've got to let go of some of my studio gear. Feel free to share this page with folks who may be interested: https://leadcatpress.com/studio-sale

Secrets to Overcome Frustration in Learning How to Improvise • Jazzadvice

"To get to the root of the frustration, first identify what type of frustration it is by asking yourself these three questions:

1. Is it specific and having to do with the actual music?

2. Is it general and having to do with the actual music?

3. Is it non-music related?

The answers to these questions will help you figure out the next thing you need to determine:

What do I need to STOP doing right now to end my frustration?

All the frustration you’re experiencing is coming from something you’re doing. Let that soak in for a minute…

The tune very well may be difficult, or the mouthpiece actually may suck, but your frustration and lack of musical growth is coming from what you’re actually doing."

Learning to improvise and soloing over jazz standards can be extremely frustrating. In this guide, learn how to overcome the common problems in jazz improvisation.

Fundamental Skills | Jazz, Blues, Rock | All Levels

I’m a little different than other guitar teachers because I teach the fundamentals of music using a clear structure that I tailor to each student’s goals and learning style.

Students develop a strong skill set to use in all kinds of musical situations, and many of my students perform all over the country, in various styles, earning their living from music.

I wrote The Guitar Lesson Companion method book series to help make teaching and learning the fundamentals of music easier and more effective, and today thousands of guitarists use these books!

Now I’m offering a FREE Online Guitar Course so anyone who gets the books can finally master these crucial skills. Why? I want to make music education more accessible; all you need is the book, a guitar, and the internet to use this course! There are no short cuts but you will find a clear, effective, and modern approach to learning the fundamentals of music.
