2023 Saturday Sessions: February 18, 25 / March 4, 11, 18, 25.
Three Full Previous Session of Paul’s Ear Training course included
Ever have a great idea you want to play, yet when you go to play it, it somehow doesn’t come out right? Want to make a better connection between what your ear is hearing and what your hands are doing on the guitar?
This course addresses putting the basic building blocks of music into your ears and under your fingers at the same time. Both Melodic and Harmonic hearing and playing will be covered. This system is based on the material taught by Dr. Asher Zlotnik to many great players around the world, and adapted specifically for jazz guitar by Paul Bollenback.
Learn the sound, location, uses and construction of all the intervals, scale fragments, triad shape, chromatic approaches and outlines of harmony, ultimately applying the material to improvising on tunes.
The classes will be recorded and a link sent after each class for download, so you will be able to review at your leisure, in perpetuity.
Intermediate/Advanced players, some music theory knowledge required (intervals, scales, chord construction).

Note from Paul regarding class time:
“I’m planning on 12:30 PM East Coast time, and if it needs to be adjusted a half an hour either way we can do that. If this really doesn’t work for enough people we’ll pick another time. Thanks! PB”
