Private Jazz Lessons
Jazz improvisation, like any art form, is "Lebensarbeit": life work. For most, the journey to feel even slightly comfortable at a jazz jam session will take many years of disciplined listening and homework. It is this journey that Rick began at a young age and continues to follow, even working in his middle-age years on many of the same songs he was learning to blow through when he was 16 years old.
Rick generally plays piano during improvisation sessions and teaches essential theory, sound, style, taste, and rhythm. Call and response games will be played.
Rick is currently teaching in Bonn and Freiburg, Deutschland.
