Save Time

Accelerate your learning curve as you learn from the top level Masters in the Jazz industry.

Give Yourself Time to Digest

For many, 1 full in-depth class per month is just the right amount of material to dive into. 1 month affords you time to practice the material in your path to mastery.


Watch yourself progress month to month as you dive deep into the knowledge of the Masters.


Select any class of your choice based on your skill level, interests, and goals.

Learn What You Want

With over 300 classes available, the amount of learning can feel overwhelming.  Rather than feeling overwhelmed by consuming so much content all at once, you can feel a sense of achievement as you work to master one topic each month.

Goal Achievement

Want to learn more songs? Each month you can select from one of our many classes geared towards deeply learning a song. Want to advance your phrasing? Chord Voicing? Rhythm? Focus your month on achieving one step closer towards your goals.

Free Stuff

Free Classes, Q&As, member-only forums, and more.


Like a good movie or a good book, once you add a class to your library it is yours forever.  You can download it, or come back to watch it at any point in the future.  Your access to your full length purchase does not expire.

Common Questions

Great question. Our membership is slightly different in that it doesn’t provide unlimited access to all classes for a period of time. Instead, each month you can select 1 class to add to your library. However, you keep that class forever whether you continue to be a member or not.  Want a lot of classes at once?   The yearly membership gives you 12 class credits at the time you check out.  Likewise, the quarterly membership gives 3 credits after checking out.

We did our best to create a system that both rewards students who are devoting a lot of time to learning and the Masters that devoted a substantial effort to their creating the classes.

1 Class Credit allows you to buy 1 FULL DURATION class at Mike’s Master Classes.   Including PDFs, Materials, and video downloads.  You can return to view that class at any point in the future whether your membership is active or not.

There are no long-term contracts.  If you select the monthly membership, you can cancel after 1 month.  Quarterly, you can cancel after 3 months.  Yearly, 12 months.

Yes.  Classes are both available for streaming instantly, or download.  All materials can be downloaded as well.  We realize many people want to be able to take their classes on the go, or access in areas do not have internet access.  Thus, we continue to make every the downloadable option an important consideration.

Not at this time.  However, we do offer class guarantees.  If you are not satisfied with any class purchase, you can request to exchange for another class.  We understand it is hard to know for sure if a class will fit your learning style, and we want you to be completely satisfied with classes that you purchase.

Mike’s Membership is an optional paid membership enhancement on top of a regular account.  You can have an FREE account at Mike’s Master Classes and purchase classes as you see fit.  That too is perfectly fine.  The classes will be yours to keep forever.  The paid membership is simply an optional method to save $$ on classes you are already planning on buying anyway 🙂

A good question.

A membership gives you 1 credit per month which allows you to purchase any class with that credit. So whether you continue to be a paying member or not, you now own that class forever and can come back to view it in the future even after you cancel the paid membership.

The paid membership also includes some “Member-only” classes. Roughly 10 I believe right now that you also have access to.

However, the other 300+ classes are not part of the low monthly membership rate. Instead, you would select only the classes you want and exchange the class credit to purchase that class to be part of your personal study library.

  • “Naima” – Exploring Modern Dominant 7ths

    Tremendous Course on Tremendous Tune!!!! 5

    I first heard this tune about 1970. About 20 years later, my teacher helped me develop a chord melody (in E rather than Eb). It was close but she gets it more precisely. I never could figure how to solo after the first chorus. Now I have a number of options. Perhaps THE most important thing for Me is to listen to the chord and play the different scales and arps absorbing the emotional aspects and sounds. And keep doing it to get to the next level. For Me, this course was both Practical, as well as DEEP!!! Thanks Sheryl!!! Hope you'll be coming to Cleveland when some normalacy and safety returns.

  • Improve Your Right Hand, A Classical Guitar Approach

    Somewhat helpful 5

    There was some helpful info on improving right hand dexterity. NO pdf of Etude. No discussion of using pinky. He seemed to have a fancy metronome, that I'm unaware of, that you can set for triplets, etc. I will work on exercises, as well as finding the piece he used to show case these exercises. Addendum - Victor Responded VERY Quickly! He sent me pdfs of Etude. He also provided additional info - pinky not used much in classical music and his metronome is called "pro metronome." THANKS VERY MUCH Victor!!!

  • Body and Soul: Putting Chords to Work

    More than information 5

    This course contains a lot of very useful material. Maybe more importantly, it gives you ways to apply that material, and not just to Body and Soul. You get a very full palette of chord voicings and inversions and substitutions, but also exercises to really get them under your fingers as quickly and securely as possible. Probably the most useful course I've taken on MMC.

  • Bebop Flow: Connecting Harmonic Concepts with the Family of 4

    Baileys Bebop flow 5

    I found this course to be very insightful. The family of 4 concept is great and provides the player multiple melodic options. Sheryl's 8 Bebop lines are very cool and I'm having fun working them into Just Friends. So glad I took this course.

  • Jazz Phrasing Part 2 (For All Instruments)

    Jazz Phrasing part 2 5

    This introduction to triplet rhythms and other asymmetrical patterns shows the student a way to build lines that float over the chord changes. The course uses There Will Never Be Another You as a vehicle to demonstrate these concepts. Steve's examples flow over the chord changes and I found myself presented with a whole new way to think about soloing. The examples are tabbed out and broken down into 4 and 8 bar sections to facilitate learning. Steve puts all the sections together at the end and the result is a beautiful etude that shows the concepts perfectly. I'm already experimenting with these concepts on other songs and beginning to see the unlimited possibilities of playing more freely using these rhythmic concepts. Thanks Steve for an insight into this very cool way of phrasing.

  • A Guide to Practical Comping – Part 1

    Connect the islands of your knowledge of applied jazz theory 5

    Jamie’s course is a tour de force of pedagogical brilliance. He focuses upon the harmonic aspects of jazz guitar comping (not much about rhythm here) which he approaches from a good number of interrelated angles. Some or many of these angles may already be familiar to the student. What is so magnificent in this course is Jamie’s insightful explanation and reasoning about basic matters, and then his exciting demonstration of techniques for extending and interconnecting the basic principles of the topics that he covers. Those topics include: shell voicings, different voicing strategies according to whether a bass player is involved, bass line comping (on guitar), chord cognates (same fingering yielding different chords depending on choice of root), drop 2 voicings, the chameleon nature of diminished and half diminished chord voicings and how they can be leveraged to form chord substitutions in an applied context, basics of chord melody and voice leading. You have likely visited and possibly concentrated upon a good many of these topics. But Jamie’s masterful presentation is bound to get your harmonic thinking and feeling flowing in new ways; new synapses will form, islands of familiarity will become connected by new causeways, and your archipelago of knowledge and skills risks becoming... a continent. Thank you, Jamie, for this treasure chest!

  • The Life-Vest Arpeggio Part II

    Insightful is an understatement!!!! 5

    If you are having trouble organizing your sound options when soloing over the standards, and have "had it" with learning a hundred scalar variations, this course will solve your problems. Sr. Castro is frankly one of the best teachers I have seen and his work in his series on the "lifeboat arpeggio" will give you a new way of thinking, a new system of organizing, and a revolutionary new insight into the fretboard that will make approaching even the most difficult standard understandable. Moreover, his insight enables you to do this "on the fly," while you are performing a tune. I wish that I had the opportunity to study with this amazing player and teacher when I was a young man, but at least I have found his insights so helpful even after over 40 years of playing jazz. Thank you, Sr., Castro, for your insight and flawless teaching style!

  • Swing and Big Band Chordal Riffs and Shout Choruses

    Big Band chord riffs and shout choruses 5

    I took my time with this course. After the first two or three examples, I realized that this is fundamental material that was missing in my playing. These choruses give the student the knowledge and ability to play bluesy chordal riffs that sound very sophisticated. The chords used are pretty basic but the syncopation and voice leading produce a sound that is hip, musical, and can stand on its own as a chord solo or sound great with a bass player. The ideas presented are in various keys. They are explained well and demonstrated accurately. The ideas are written out completely. I am not a great music reader but I did not find it difficult to learn these phrases. It definitely does not hurt to challenge oneself in the skill of reading music. Thanks Steve, for a great course. You have given me some super cool ideas to take on the bandstand.

  • Jimmy Wyble’s Etude #1

    Excellent and very enjoyable class 5

    This is an excellent and very enjoyable class. Prior to this presentation I had a vague awareness of the name Jimmy Wyble but hadn't studied his etudes and didn't know the details of his ideas. With this lesson, I feel like Sid Jacobs has given me a solid start. The technical and music content is top-notch, the video and audio are clear and Sid's command of the material and relaxed presentation connects very well.
