I took the one week intensive program at the players school last month. It was fantastic!! I've been playing for many years but only read a little bass clef. Jeff sat down with me and let me play a little. He then started me playing exercises that were appropriate for my skill level. He corrected most of many bad habits. He always reminded us to ask as many questions as we could come up with about anything in the field of music. I had five, hour long bass/reading lessons with Jeff. Three ensemble sessions with him leading, correcting, advising, and ALWAYS encouraging us. I also had daily sessions with the keyboard player Matt Bokulic. Matt introduced us to harmony theory and ear training. Another great learning experience came when we got to sit and watch the more advanced students during their ensemble sessions. What impressed me most about the Players School was the passion and enthusiasm of Jeff and Matt. It was obvious that they both loved teaching "the good stuff" as they called it and I am looking forward to a four week course as soon as I can arrange it.
