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 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.

  • Single Note Melody Part 1: Making The Melody Sing

    I hope this class doesn’t get lost in the shuffle because of the absolute importance of The subject matter 5

    Hey Steve, There’s so much to say about the expressive qualities you bring up here— The heart of phrasing is expression and ornamentation. . I think many guitarists don’t really focus as much as they need to on it. For those of us who aspire to play (lap) piano style guitar, what you talk about here is everything the guitar can provide as a string instrument that the piano cannot. The obvious corollaries are to European classical music and Indian classical music.. Ironically, everything that you speak of here, especially with regard to the glissando and slides, Jack C was the absolute master of, I referred to him often as the Johnny Hodges of the guitar. Interestingly, he would grease his fingers on the left hand, which Indian classical musicians do, especially on guitar and mandolin (Eg, the late great maestro U. Srinivas). The Use of bends versus slides and glissando is actually a very critical one. There is a truly great local musician who is probably the best all-around guitar player I can think of (Who is, incidentally, a dead ringer for my brother, except my brother was like a foot taller 🙂 ) who I heard playing Indian classical music using a lot of Bends. I think that comes across as more B.B. King than Indian classical music.. I don’t know if this is the right word, lyricism is a product expression and ornamentation. We can learn a lot from Indian classical musicians in this regard. I’m going to go meet with a South Indian friend of mine who is studying Carnatic guitar — His mother was a Carnatic classical singer. We’re going to do a trade off: I’m going to teach him about harmony and chords in the fingerboard then he’s going to teach me about ornamentation, which is principally slides, slurs and so forth. I think you got the critical components exactly right. This is an important subject matter, and a lot of jazz players tend to neglect it. Ultimately, lyricism is a function of expression and ornamentation. Looking forward to part 2!

  • Single Note Melody Part 1: Making The Melody Sing

    Secrets of tasteful melody playing 5

    As in all his classes, Steve does a masterful job of demonstrating the secrets of playing beautifully, in this case with single-note song melodies. He goes into the various subtleties of tone, articulation, phrasing, and register. There are no transcribed examples, but I didn't find it necessary because it's really about the creative art of taking a melody and making it sing, not about memorizing a particular example. His playing is very clear and easy to follow, as always, and he talks through what he's doing as he's doing it. He includes a very handy list of concepts to consider and he explains all of them in the video. If you envy the way a horn player or a singer can make a melody sound beautiful and want to be able to do that on the guitar, this class is for you. I'm looking forward to part 2!

  • Heads, You Win!

    Insightful is an understatement!!!! 5

    Thank you, Jamie, for the wonderful course! Everything is done very well and your explanations and teachings are beyond my expectations! You gave me the very best analysis of Donna Lee that I have ever learned --and, sad to say, I have been playing that song for over 40 years. Your course demonstrates your expertise in musical understanding and performance; however, it is also a clear demonstration of your tremendous teaching ability. Thanks again!

  • Delayed Resolutions (Appoggiatura)

    A masterpiece of utility- buy it in the morning and play it on the stand tonight. 5

    This is the masterclass that has shown me how to apply some enclosing of tones along with delayed resolutions. So far i am already realizing that Steve's presentation of ideas offers a straightforward method that give single-note lines a sense of going somewhere, via small tension/resolution patterns that lines that only float aimlessly through scales just can't and don't possess.

  • The Art of Bass & Chords For Jazz Guitar

    Thinking like a bass player. 5

    Still working through the course but have thoroughly enjoyed it thus far. A great resource for solo jazz guitar. Gives a guitarist like me a much-needed understanding of a bass player's perspective. A course on jazz counterpoint from Tom would be fantastic.

  • Body and Soul: Putting Chords to Work

    Putting what you learn to good use 5

    I enjoyed this class very much. It addresses an important issue: what do you do with all the chords you've learned? Are you really using all the voicings, or are you just sticking to certain ones all the time (guilty). Are you aware of all the possible substitutions that you can use (really important, since rootless voicings keep the bass player happy). Do you play drop 3 chords starting from the 5th string? (some, not enough). Finally, do you ever use drop 2&4 or something besides drop 2 or drop 3? I will definitely use these ideas when learning tunes (and maybe even try something like comping the whole tune within the first 4 frets, then frets 5-8, etc. forcing me to not always go to the "typical" chords I use). Highly recommended.

  • Body and Soul: Putting Chords to Work

    Putting chords to work 5

    Hello Tom, I really love the way you laid all this out. An immense amount of work I'm sure. What I really love is the concept of working on chord inversions while all the while being inside a really good song. The old idea of two birds with one stone. Also the included charts of associated chords for color are invaluable. Thank you very much for this course. Robert Gannon

  • The Shadow of Your Smile: Solo Guitar Arranging Master Class

    Excellent arranging class 5

    Jake Thx so much for this detailed description of how you go about playing tunes solo. This in conjunction with your 2 hr arranging course pretty much gives one all the tools needed to start playing solo guitar. I know it will take time to put in place all of the different techniques but at least I know where I am going in this style. Again thx (no PDF needed) because it is so well laid out 🙂

  • Tetrachord Scales – Part 1

    Tetrachord Scales-Part 1-Randy Johnston 5

    Always loved Randy's playing-this is my first exposure to his teaching. Have to say, his approach makes jazz guitar a whole lot simpler and much more logical-not necessary to learn endless fingering patterns. This system allows you to actually play much more melodically, which is really what it's all about!

    Excellent course 5

    Thank you, Howard, for putting this information in such a clear, concise, and useful manner. You are an incredible teacher and an amazing guitarist and also possess the gift of making concepts easily understandable. I was able to take this lesson and put these concepts to work in many of the standards that I have played for years. it added a dimension that I had not previously known to my lines.
