Premier Courses — What Students Say...

— Shari
— Bruce
— Gayle
"With the Premier Courses, I have to say that I think that you really found a great formula. The idea of working on limited sections of the song along with the video submission accountability has pushed me to really have the parts down. In the past, I might have gotten close enough but not really mastered the sections. Thank you for your ongoing efforts to improve the site and curriculum."

No. Anyone can purchase this course. However, Premier members get access to all Premier Courses.

These are YOUR lessons so you get to decide how and when you participate. However, in order to get a completion certificate at the end of the course, you will need to submit the assignments.

Ultimately, it is up to yoiu to decide if you want to do the homework or join in on the live sessions.

You can submit your assignment at any time as long as the course is running. Check the main course page to see when the course ends.

You can submit assignments in any order. This means you can submit them out of order if you wish.

What if the assignment is too difficult for me?

You can alter the assignment to make it easier for yourself. For example, try playing an easier left-hand part, or maybe just submit the melody alone. Point is, it is best to submit something rather than nothing.

2. Continue your review and practice to solidify your knowledge.
3. Take a well-deserved break to recharge before the next course.
4. Or all of the above!

Your Ultimate Online Music Learning Tool

Unleash your inner musical genius and embark on an extraordinary journey with Jazzedge Academy's world-renowned learning platform. Jazzedge Academy's platform has garnered accolades and acclaim for its innovation and effectiveness. We're not just any online classroom; we're a leader in music education!
We know your time is valuable so Premier Courses are broken into easy to mange 8-week semesters. This gives you the time to learn a lot in a short time without overwhelming yourself.
Each Premier Course is divided into classes. Some classes are live while others are recorded. The recorded classes feature bite-sized videos that you can slow down, speed up and watch as much as you want until you master the material.
Most online music education programs require you to watch a long video and figure out what and how to practice the material. Jazzedge Academy's Premier Courses changes this approach. With our Premier Courses, in addition to the longer class (lesson) video, you will also see multiple Practice Actions™ which are shorter, succinct videos that show you note-for-note what to practice and in which order. Learning in now super-simple.
Here is an example of Premier Course 
Practice Actions. You'll notice:
the video is short and to the point
the material is played several times
you are given options if you can't play the example
you don't have to search around in the main video to find what you need to practice
Practice actions make your practice super-focused
You'll also receive weekly assignments just like a college-level course. However, it's up to you to decide whether or not you want to "do your homework." Students who complete their assignments will get feedback from the teacher and have the opportunity to receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course. But, you get to decide!
There are several live sessions held throughout the Premier Course. Usually held once a week for about an hour, these live sessions give you the opportunity to engage with fellow students and ask the teacher questions. Every session is recorded and available to rewatch at a later time.
Let's face it. As an adult life gets busy and it's easy to lose track of your goals. Premier Courses make your life easier by providing you with all of the tools needed to stay focused and motivated. 

Each week a new lesson is released. Watch the lesson as much as you wish and use the video Practice Actions™ to know what to practice. 

Live classes are also held each week and they give you the opportunity to engage with other students, get teacher feedback and ask your questions.

In addition, you'll receive helpful emails with tips to stay motivated and on track. Plus, you can engage with your fellow students in our private community forum.
