I found a teacher who has years experience...thousands of hours of practice and super chops. I'm hoping that I can work with this person at a brisk pace. I have no idea what to expect for the first lesson. I'm hoping to bring my arbans and get to work. The best aspect of this teacher is that he has transcribed hundreds of blue note works... So if I want to learn how to play good jazz I'll be in good hands...I don't expect to do much in the first half hour. I'm affraid I might loose my patience...I suppose the first lesson will be more than likely discussion rather than instruction. I could be wrong. I just hope I can actually get a few sessions in.
