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.

    Master Working Guitarist Jack Wilkins explains his learning process using the standards! 5

    Jack Wilkins is one of the most admired guitarists in NYC. He's "the guitarist all the other guitarists go to see". He's played with Buddy Rich, Chet Baker, Bill Evans and many others. In this video he gives a very generous breakdown of how he approaches practicing, how to develop fingerboard knowledge, and how to learn and develop an approach to playing common standards...and he performs many examples. To have an top working musician provide the "real work" regarding jazz guitar should be of high interest to anyone who is serious. True, the video technology is a bit dated, but the tips he shares more than makes up for that.

  • Playing Changes in One Octave

    Fantastic course 5

    Randy always gives a well thought out and logical presentation in easy to digest chunks of information. I was especially impressed by this course. This is certainly one of the best presentations on a soloing concept I have heard in a long time. A great practice tool, and I'll be practicing this concept everyday. I can see where it forces one to learn the neck and helps to create a cohesive solo. Highly recommended.

This is the "Secret" I have been looking for To make my solos Sound good. This is going to be My Go-To Method of practicing every jazz standard that I am working on........ Thanks so much for sharing this valuable concept With us !!!!

    Great Course! Highly recommended! 5

    This class was so easily assimilated and Paul explains the material clearly. I was familiar with all the chord shapes but Paul goes over the applications, substitutions and I was able to use them immediately in my playing. I would say this class is pretty much essential. I also would highly recommend Paul's recordings as I downloaded many of them on iTunes after watching this class and I am now a big fan of his playing! 5 stars! Can't wait to get the others as well!

  • Advanced Jazz Guitar Harmony: Drop 2 and 4, Drop 2 and 3

    5

    All of Tom's courses are fantastically thorough; all the information is laid out logically, with plenty of examples given so the music can be heard, not just read. His library, including the advanced harmony course is amazing in that it sets you up for a lifetime of exploration. He knows how the interaction between jazz as a common practice and academic harmony and rhythm works; his insights are completely functional. Thanks Tom...

  • Stella by Starllight – Changes, Voicings and Lines

    It doesn't get any better!! 5

    Phenomenal lesson....... Randy Plays A few different chord melodies. He also plays several different Full Chorus Single line solos! He goes over Key centered Approaches For the newer player And also Other scale choices For the More Advanced players.........There is also a fantastic segment on How-to solo over a minor 251 By simplifying everything Using minorization and tetra chord Concepts. There is much much more also! Like all of Randy's lessons, They are like multiple lessons In one. He also discusses The necessary theory And harmony For a difficult tune (Stella) In my view All of Randy's lessons are by far The best bang for the buck on the entire Internet. He gives Great stuff To get into are playing and Take it and use it At the next gig For jam session Or whatever......... I look forward To many more Lessons On Jazz standards Like This one! Ray King

  • Harmonic Rhythm

    Creating Motion in My Solo Lines and Comping 5

    I added Phil Robson’s Harmonic Rhythm to my playlist because I was looking for other approaches for improvising and comping to complement what I am already doing. Harmonic Rhythm details the techniques of playing chord changes (ii-V-I-VI) in advance (anticipation) or behind (delay) of where they are written. Also, important is Phil’s discussion on phrase placement in relation to the beat and bar-line as a way of making some phrases standout from the rest in your improvisation and/or connect your melodic fragments to one another. Phil talks about how to change the feel of any phrase by setting it to different parts of bar. I am also using his methods (note placement and note duration) to embellish the written melody of a tune. There may be some instructional material out there that mentions this approach, but Phil’s workshop goes into a detailed step-by-step approach to retraining your hearing to hear an idea in motion towards future rhythmic and harmonic resolution targets. But at the end of the day, what Phil offers in this lesson is another process/method of creating single-note and chord motion across the bar-line (to create tension and release within a phrases). The ultimate goal for me is to be able to play anything anywhere; and create rhythmic and melodic freedom during my solos and comping. Phil’s lesson gets me one step closer to this destination. Thanks Phil, Guy

  • Simplifying Jazz Guitar

    Simplifying Jazz by Randy Johnston 5

    This is a phenomenally good Lesson! Actually it is like eight lessons in one........Don't overlook this because the video resolution Isn't the greatest. The guitar Fretboard Can be clearly seen........and the sound is good enough. Randy starts off With a solo guitar version Of My favorite things. Next Is some incredible Solo guitar For Stella by starlight. Several choruses Of great playing with Interesting changes! I'm transcribing that now I like it so much! Randy then goes into a great discussion and demonstration of tetrachord scales Which is very informative. Next It's a discussionAnd demonstration of the different ways to approach A minor 251 Really good stuff here also! Then As if this all wasn't enough already, Randy finishes off With some excellent G Blues Solo guitar. This one is next on my list to transcribe! There is a real Lot of Material Here. Good Material! I highly recommend this Lesson. RAY KING

  • 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 .

    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?
