Musicians who want to learn how to play better will be pleased to hear that bass legend Jeff Berlin will hold a “One Week Intensive Music Program” from September 13 to 17, 2010. The event is widely regarded as one of the finest 5 days of music education available. Bass players, guitar players, drummers and keyboardists, beginners to advanced players will take private lessons everyday at their level to improve. Says Jeff, “I’ve said so many negative things about so much of music education, that my reputation is riding upon the very improvement that I promise to players who attend this event. 100% who attend MUST get better as players or I will have to answer for it! For this reason, I made sure that everybody on every instrument, on every musical level goes home better than when they first arrived!”
The Players School of Music was formed in 1998. It is located in the historic Kapok Building in Clearwater, Florida. “I stated the school to make a living when I retired from playing bass when my son got cancer (he recovered and I kept the school),” Jeff Berlin explains. “The school offers musical content to beginners and advanced players – 100% of our students improve if they practice what is given to them. Pure beginners come here and learn to read and play and advanced players are offered lessons that they won’t find elseware. Guest lecturers included Mike Stern, Victor Wooten, Brian Brombergand Larry Coryell and this year will surely have excellent guests as well.”
Jeff Berlin is a legend of the electric bass, considered by many to be the finest electric bass playerin the world. A true master of the bass, Jeff Berlin has played with the likes of Bill Bruford, George Benson, Allan Holdsworth, and even toured with original members of Yes (Anderson, Wakeman, Bruford, Howe) on only three days’ notice. Jeff has also been at the front of music education for almost 30 years. His column in Guitar Player and Bass Player magazineswere the most read columns due to their controversial content of music education. Jeff single handedly has re-vamped music education by dismissing popular methods of learning such as using electronic tuners, metronomes, handgrips, tablature, or any study method that does not include musical content.
