Why Become a Mike's Member?

Save $$

Get Almost any Class for Less than $20 – Why spend $30 or more on a class when you can get it for less than $20. Most classes can be bought for 1 class credit. Each month you receive 1 class credit. Signing up for just one month is perfectly reasonable, just to get a lower cost on your class credit.

Any class that is purchased with a class credit is yours forever.  Whether you cancel your membership or keep it, a full class purchase will always be yours.

Credits never go away.  Whether your paid membership is active or not, your class credits will still be available in your account.

Save 20% on any purchases. Classes, bundles, any purchasable product is 20% off all the time for members.

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.

Consistency

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

Flexibility

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.

Re-Watch

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.

    Tom is a master player and teacher. I feel very lucky to live in a day and age where I can get all this wonderful information from a master teacher at the touch of a button.

  • Diminished Harmony Secrets: Expand Your Diminished Harmony Vocabulary Infinitely

    Excellent information 5

    This is a really interesting class showing possibilities with diminished chords. Jake gives a well presented and organized class. It gives me some very interesting and modern sounding chords and a system I can use to come up with my own application of his concept. I'll be working on this concept for daily. Just what I was looking for to expand my harmonic sound.

  • Comping with Artificial Harmonic Voicings

    comping with harmonics 5

    Great class, well presented, very complete. This class takes the use of harmonics out of the "novelty" or embellishment sphere and makes it something useful for any and every measure of your playing.

  • Going For Baroque Part III

    Steve hits it out of the park here 5

    I remember taking his first baroque class — like with everything that he does it’s completely comprehensive with tons of material. My rule of thumb with regard to these master classes, as Vic Juris said many years ago, was that if you can get one or two really important fundamental things that you can genuinely incorporate into your playing, it would’ve been well worth it. I absolutely got something very important from that first class, which I still use to this day when I improvise: how to use tritones and displaced tritones to get you to play tenths and thirteenths. The secondary effects of that class was that kind of information really helps with fingerboard knowledge as well. This class In a way builds on this fundamental information from the first class. I took copious notes of all the exercises and condensed them to eight pages of really essential stuff that I know if I worked tirelessly on, will immensely improve my playing. Steve is right when he declared in this class that mastery of fundamental counterpoint and cadential mechanisms, maybe used in the way that George v EPS used it, Will enable one to improvise more readily. And that’s exactly what this class is, even building on some of the fundamental principles of the first class. When I analyze the material, it really came down to really knowing your 10ths, 13ths, and spread triads and being able to work with these. Now that I have eight notes of really important stuff synthesized, the next step is to hit the woodshed and as my original teacher said, “ work the shit out of it!“

  • It Ain’t Necessarily So – Masterclass (Arrangement by Sid Jacobs)

    It Is Not Necessarily As You Assert 5

    The length of the class does not concern me; it is full of great ideas, techniques, and good jokes. Only criticism: the dog is badly out of tune.

  • Walking Chords for Jazz Guitar

    5

    If you're new to this stuff you're going to find a treasure here. I have been digging on and off in this topic for years but, even so, I have gone further with this class. As always, the material is supremely well organized.

  • Paul’s Picking Power Secrets

    You should have showed us the stove in Let's Burn One! 5

    I had the good fortune of attending a jazz camp in Maryland a few years ago and Paul was the guitar guru. He commented that my picking was very stiff, and I never got the chance to ask him for advice on how to make things better. I am therefore very glad that put out these two picking courses to help me improve my picking.

  • Paul’s Picking Power Secrets

    Very useful 5

    I found this course very useful and helpful in my own playing and have incorporated much of Paul’s suggestions into my daily practice. Developing and maintaining good picking technique is an ongoing process and requires a regular return to basics. Thanks a Paul!

  • Tetrachord Scales – Part 1

    Very helpful, taught in a relaxed, fun manner 5

    Randy seems like the kind of guy you could easily talk to over drinks between sets at Fellini's in Charlottesville (oh, wait - I DID do that!) This is a great lesson that teaches a concept that I wish I had learned years ago. In just a few short minutes I feel like I've learned an easy way to escape the box pattern of playing on the fretboard. Not to mention an easy way to play a diminished scale! That alone was worth the price! Really looking forward to part 2 (and beyond).

  • Let’s Burn One! – Playing Fast Tempos

    Many ways to attack the problem 5

    I like this video because there isn't just one quick, easy solution presented here that is the one answer for everyone. Far from it. First of all, this will take time (of course I always thought everyone except me was born with the ability to play fast!) and working on this daily is key. It could be your picking hand and/or your fretting hand. It could be how well you move around the fretboard. All possibilities are addressed here. I like the idea of incorporating jazz language into your playing as well (take an idea or 3 that you like and work on incorporating those ideas wherever you can). All in all a lot of important information and advice packed into a fairly short video.

  • Triads and Seventh Chords of the Melodic Minor Scale

  • Out of Nowhere Masterclass

    Whew! So much there. 5

    Wow, I just finished watching Jake's Out of Nowhere lesson. I loved this lesson and love Jake's practical and real world teaching style. I also love how teaches concepts and shows you clearly and slowly how to execute them. Please do MORE Jake lessons teaching more standards like this! Repetition of some of the concepts taught here is fine since seeming them applied in different ways and different standards is what makes them useful and helpful. Great job, Jake!

  • Blues: A Modern Jazz Guitar Approach – Part II

    5

    Both Vol.1 and 2 are amazing courses, comprehensive, and packed with information. Staying away from cliches, Tom instead uses the blues form to show how modern harmony works and how the blues can support a completely contemporary sensibility. There's enough information to set a person up for a year...
