Access to my live Zoom jazz workshops...

Every month I host a 1hr live Zoom jazz workshop offering an in depth study of one classic jazz standard. The class is suitable for any instrument (except drums - I have plenty for you guys elsewhere!) and aimed at beginner to intermediate players. The music is always broken down into manageable sections with a clear strategy provided for your improvised solo. All of the music is transcribed from specific recordings and a complete arrangement is provided with full band parts. No real book lead sheets or iReal pro chord charts are used! In addition to this, handouts are provided covering warm ups, theory/harmony, licks, etc. Plus, I make custom play-along tracks for you to practice along with (which match the charts). These resources are uploaded a week or so before the class, so you have time to prepare in advance. Everyone is muted in the zoom class, so you are free to play along at your own leisure. There is a Q&A session at the end of every workshop. 

Access to my entire video library of past jazz workshops - now over 60hrs of classic jazz standards...

Going right back to jazz workshop #01 you get full access to the complete library of my past jazz workshops, including all of the downloads for every class. This is a fantastic learning resource, covering a huge range of classic jazz standards. Every video is about 1hr long and comes with all of the resources for that class (full band parts, handouts, play-along tracks).

You can pause, rewind and rewatch the videos as often as you like. Here some sample clips from the video library... 

New Videos added every month...

Each live online jazz workshop is recorded every month and added to the video library, which means if you are unable to attend the live zoom class you can catch up afterwards with the video recording. 

Bonus Material covering ear training and key centres...

Bonus material includes two complete series of play-along videos covering ear training and fluency in different key centres, both of which are essential skills for jazz musicians. I've recorded them for you in all 12 keys, making a total of 24 videos and about 3hrs of content. 

Live Online Musicianship Coaching...

From September 2023 I'm trialing some live guided practice sessions. Join me live on zoom for a 20-30 minute practice session covering essential scales, intervals, chords and ear training. 

One Month Rolling Subscription... 

My VIP membership is a one month rolling subscription. Which means you are not tied in and can cancel at any time.... 

Testimonials...

“This was a new experience for me and as a first-timer I found Buster to be an extremely good teacher, with clear explanations and demonstrations of the scales and note progressions, for the tune we were learning that day. He was very encouraging to all the attendees, whatever their level of experience”

Ross Jacques - chromatic harmonica

"He somehow makes what is seemingly complicated, understandable and simple and more to the point, as a saxophone player, his teaching gets the music coming out of my horn - no mean feat!  His knowledge of jazz is encyclopaedic and gives us students great understanding of how the music we are working on is constructed and developed by whichever jazz master we are studying.  Every workshop or lesson he gives is underpinned by clear, straightforward teaching materials. Buster is able to accommodate with great patience, whatever level a student is at and is very encouraging and supportive.  He also has a great sense of humour and an inexhaustible fund of stories and jokes!  Can’t recommend him highly enough!"

Lorrie Benwell - tenor sax

"He explains jazz theory really well and his enthusiasm is infectious. I always come away feeling I've learnt a great deal - and had a lot of fun in the process."

Matt Male - tenor saxophone and flute

"Buster’s many years of professional playing and teaching all ages, make him a superb teacher. Whatever your abilities or difficulties, he has great techniques for progressing your skills and knowledge. His love and enthusiasm for music and music education combine with kindness, humour and patience to make every lesson a great experience."

Ian Rowe - guitar and piano

"Buster is friendly and approachable and is able to support and coach a group of really mixed ability. He ensures that every student takes away something to work on and has had an uplifting and positive experience. Buster is unfailingly enthusiastic about his subject and communicates this to the whole group. His sessions have been the most enjoyable and useful I have been privileged to attend since I started to try jazz."

Wendy - piano
