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.

  • Melodic Minor Complete – Part II: Practical Application

    Get both Parts 1 & 2. 5

    Another home run! Tom’s classes are the best. The course description will give you a good of idea of what to expect. What it doesn’t convey is what a great instructor Tom is. His way of presenting the material is great. He makes things easy to understand and incorporate in your own playing. I own quite a few of his videos and have been very happy with all of them. His videos are destine to become classics! Highly recommended!!

  • Lenny Breau-Style Comping/Soloing (Part 2)

    Lenny Breau Pt 2 5

    Just as an aside, staring at one of Steve’s big 5 note voicings (example one again, the C7 ALT), the last three notes form a quatral voicing (note, P4, P4) but also represent the #9, #5 AND b9. So therefore, any three note quatral voicing represents the juicy ALT sounds of a dominant. Those are the kind of mental connections I try to make when working with this stuff. Nor just practicing by rote, but seeing what else I can find. The guitarist Sid Jacobs one said you can go on any page of Bach’s partitas for solo violin or Charlie Parkers omnibook and take a few measures and spend an entire lifetime learning and working with them. So many diamonds are there to be found on every page . I would never compare anybody to Bach or Bird, But Steve’s material as the same sort of quality: you can take a few measurements and you think about it and it can give you a whole bunch of material for entire lifetime . That’s the hallmark of a really good teacher and good instruction .

  • Lenny Breau-Style Comping/Soloing (Part 2)

    Lenny Breau pt. 2 5

    Fantastic class, covering material I have never seen anywhere else either on the Web or in in-person lessons. Steve is a master of so many styles, but his knowledge of the history of jazz really comes through in this one.

  • Bailey’s Boot Camp Basics – Part III

    5

    This is a really good look into drop 2's and how to use them and from there starting down the road to learning chord tones and extensions. First how to develop your own voicing's from the basic drop 2's and then how they relate to songs. As a study really good for your ear and your knowledge of the fret board and harmony. Then as an added bonus Sheryl goes into diminished chord families and how to use them...very cool. Some really interesting and useful sounds. I've watched this class 7 or 8 times and I always come away inspired to go deeper into my chords. Thx

  • Bebop Flow Part 2: Combining Families for Altered II V’s

    A must!! This lesson will open doors if you're struggling with ii V I's and jazz vocabulary. 5

    It's a systematic way to navigate through changes that are the backbone of most jazz standards. At first glance, it seems complicated, but upon reflection it's quite easy to grasp I look forward to future lessons with SB. BTW, at @ 4:30 - 4:31 of the video, Sheryl contorts her fingers in a way that's impossible for me to do. Anyone notice this?

  • Bebop Flow Part 2: Combining Families for Altered II V’s

    Excellent class! 5

    I love the concepts and how Sheryl delivers the info...so upbeat! I hope she continues to put classes up. She mentions about 10 possible classes which all would be great! The fam of four is a very simple concept with far reaching possibilities. How it all relates to altered chords is great too! Once you develop your language you can recycle it over altered chords...Very Cool! Really fun to play.

    Once again, Sheryl has knocked it out of the park with this wonderful lesson. I'm been amazed by her fluency in the bebop language for quite a while now, and this class provides further insight into developing flowing lines through the changes. Thanks to Sheryl for this great learning experience. Best regards, Scot Gormley

  • Exploring Original Creations [Non-Diatonic]

    Exploring Original Creations.....WOW!! 5

    I have followed John Stowell for quite a few years, been lucky enough to hear him live and play with him, and he is one of the most creative, original, supportive, and enthusiastic musicians anywhere. This class shows what a masterful creator and teacher he is. Beautifully organized, clearly taught, and thoroughly original approaches to the music of today and tomorrow. Highly, highly recommended. (say Hey to Lou for me)

  • Exploring Original Creations [Non-Diatonic]

    A non-diatonic composition course - finally! 5

    I've been waiting for a course exactly like this - thanks John. The main thing I like about the course is there are lots of short examples of different compositional offerings. John's offerings are cliche-free and he offers loads of approaches that are helping me with my own efforts. Very highly recommended.

  • Blues: A Modern Jazz Guitar Approach – Part I

    Starts with the basics and gets intense 5

    Tom is a really thoughtful teacher. He paces the course to make sure you have the basics in place - which of course you need to know - before moving on to more advanced material. This isn't just a one-off youtube lesson with a guy showing you a few licks and tricks. This is the real deal and the material is rooted in the playing of the jazz masters. I especially enjoyed the section on outlining chords while retaining the basic sound of the blues. From there Tom takes you into chord scales and substitutions, melodic minor and diminished scale applications, modal concepts ala McCoy Tyner, and then into poly-rhythms, and suspended chordal ideas. Cool stuff. There's a lot here that could keep you busy for a very long time. Even if you absorb just a part of this lesson, with practice it will help you become a better player.

    Excellent. I especially appreciate Tom's urging to not get complacent with the introduction, but to continue to explore all that this fascinating scale has to offer.

  • Jazz Guitar Finger-Style Technique

    Great course, looking forward to a follow up course 5

    This was a great course and having Tom answer my questions so quickly was the icing on the cake. With that said, I would love to see a video of Tom doing some "real world" playing and then breaking down what he is doing. Perhaps a video just playing 4-5 bebop heads with solos? If the music/fingerings were included it would be a "must buy" course. This course really got me off the ground using my fingers.

  • The Half Diminished Sound

    Great Course 5

    This is an excellent course which is systematically organised. The price is cheap compared to the information contained within. The most useful part for me was when certain colour tones can be added/replaced to the exisiting half-diminished chord to give a beautiful sound. This course is certainly one to have in your arsenal.

  • Beautiful Love

    Thanks for all your help and advice with showing us a pathway through this beautiful tune. 5

    Randy presents an easily playable, but harmonically challenging arrangement of Beautiful Love. Throughout the lesson he demonstrates a variety of Harmonic Textures by restructuring the original underlying harmony of the song. This was a big help in making several of the passages very playable on the guitar. What's really great, is that Randy provides a methodology for analyzing the content, he breaks down his solo into logical, 8-bar sections, then specifically addresses what takes place over each chord. His method is instantly transferrable to other tunes. Randy, presents the jazz improviser with new avenues of expression via traditional forms of this standard tune. The power and depth of his compositions (chord melody) has been an inspiration to me both as an improviser and a guitarist. An added benefit is this tune, it introduced me to artist that I haven't spent that much time with: Anita O'Day, Hank Jones and Kenny Barron. Plus musicians that I know very well - played great renditions of this tune: Kenny Burrell, Joe Pass, Bill Evans, etc.. I hope everyone will give Beautiful Love a try, you will not regret it.

  • Advanced Jazz Guitar Harmony: 4-Part-4ths

    Wow 5

    I only knew one aspect of 4th voicings coming into this class (what Tom has listed as 2nd inversion drop 2 voicings). I had no idea how much there still was to learn! Like Tom's other classes this one has a tremendous amount of information, very well presented. I think most of us mere mortals will need to come back to this class over a period of many years to get just some of the information presented here burned into our brains. I would suggest learning one particular group of voicings and then go to about 1:30 in the video (page 13 of the handout) to learn how to improve your fluidity with them. Excellent class.

  • Open String Concepts for Chords and Single Note Lines

    Really Eye Opening 5

    I always enjoy Tom's lessons. They are packed full of information (that you will be able to go back to again and again) but still everything is very well explained. I've already utilized several of the ideas he presents here in live situations and it has definitely made my comping much more interesting. I highly recommend this course.
