Crushing Classical: Redefining A Thriving Music Career

Oct 17, 2019

What you'll hear:

  • The conundrum Jeffrey found himself in when he started his new job as a horn teacher in a university, and how he solved it
  • The story behind his unique way of teaching the horn
  • What improvisation REALLY is… this was my favorite description of it I’ve ever heard
  • An amazing distinction between playing and listening… 
  • A toxic part of the teaching paradigm, something I believed until now!
  • Instead of fearing improvisation as a student… what if we demanded it be part of the curriculum? We discuss.
  • The BIG difference in his students that have been improvising every day now compared to the ones who haven’t - this one is so powerful.
  • What his goal is as a teacher - you simply have to hear this.
