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.

  • Blues-Part I – Call and Response

    Blues Part 1 Call and Response 5

    This class is just what I was looking for, some great ideas to add to my blues and jazz vocabulary. The call and response concept makes these ideas perfect for playing with a bass player. But many of the lines are punctuated with chord "hits" enabling the combination of single note and chord punctuation to stand alone. The lines are tasty, bluesy, and authentic. The focus is mainly on the key of F and Bb, which gives the student the opportunity to see cool ideas in different positions. The accompanying tab is accurate and the course is laid out with easier ideas first and then moving to more challenging phrases involving syncopation, triplets, chordal movement, thirds, sixths, octaves, etc. Steve is a wonderful teacher. He moves the class along at a good pace with thorough explanations. Lots of great material in this course! Thank you Steve!

  • Discussion/Demonstration of the Modes of the Melodic Minor Over Dominant Chords

    Finally I get... 5

    ...the melodic minor! Really enjoyed the video which repays repeated viewings. I can now visualise and hear how different melodic minor shapes lock onto the dominant chord and can be mixed with dominant and major arpeggios to bring out varying amounts of tension. The articles are useful too, although the lesson would be enhanced by a 1 page worksheet referring to the material covered in the video. Still excellent value overall though.

  • Discussion/Demonstration of the Modes of the Melodic Minor Over Dominant Chords

    5

    Great discussion. Too short for such a rich topic as melodic minor. Also, more examples from actual songs would help e.g. the Ellington illustration greatly clarified what was being discussed. Thanks to you both.

  • Contrary Motion Counterpoint Part 2: Mixed Rhythms

    Simply some of the best materials available on the whole Internet 5

    I bought my first class on this site (and it was from Steve Herberman!) in 2009. I have to say in the intervening 11 years one class after another, these materials have turned my playing around, as well as my way of approaching the guitar. What I say about Steve's latest offering can easily apply to any of his classes: generous amounts of materials, accompanied by clear explanations that are never overly theoretical, and sound like music - never like exercises. The contrapuntal approach on the guitar is difficult and for this reason tends to be rare both in performance and in educational materials, but this site - and Steve Herberman in particular - offer a clear way into this world, tackled in a very methodical way and approached with the immediate goal of making music and improvising with the outlook of an arranger. For anyone interested in this style of playing/ composing/ arranging there is an old class of Steve's called 'Contrapuntal improvisation' that really started it all for me and, despite a video quality that 11 years old, is worth the price of admission alone for the opening rendition of Alone Together. In fact, that reminds me, I need to roll up my sleeves and transcribe it!

  • Contrary Motion Counterpoint part 1: Concerted Rhythms

    Mechanisms as a Modular System, not a Dr. Seuss Book, indeed 🙂 5

    Steve, I really like where you’re going with this “Mechanisms” thing, because the creativity really comes from not just parroting it, but the ability to personalize it, individually. Modularity has become the basic principle of computer coding, especially Object-Oriented Programming. Creating re-usable, small bits, or “Objects”, that can be re-used and re-applied in multiple formats, contexts, situations. It has the same applicability with music. Mingus famously said that music is the progressive mastery of simple things that build on each other. For example, I played around with the representation of the C-7 chord in measure 1 of exercise 5. Now, instead of playing the C-7, I have additional ways of representing this information, in a linear way. This also connects very much with what Barry Harris says, over and over again, “Music is Movement”. Thanks again and cheers, Nav
