Where Musicians Are Guided By Masters

Where it's for mission and not for profit

For 49 Years Musical Giants Guided Our Legendary Workshops

Online Workshops Led By Cutting-Edge Musicians

Starting with over 3 hours of training, we invited creative masters to sit down and record a workshop that you won't get in a class or your average music lesson:

How to think, listen, and play like a musician who sounds like nobody else. How to explore creative mastery.

Watch them anywhere, anytime, from any device, as many times as you want.

Quick Breakthroughs With The "One Big Idea" Series

The concept is simple: In these 28 "lightening round" training videos contain one big idea that takes 1-3 minutes to watch.

One big idea that is strong enough to make a permanent change in how you think, listen, play or create your music.

Whether you don't have much time that day, or you simply want to stretch out and dig into one big concept, these training videos deliver a punch in a small package.

Live Online Workshops Led By Renowned Musicians

This is the closest you can get to experiencing the unique feel of our legendary New York workshops without being here.

Using a state-of-the-art platform, we created an environment where you can easily participate, interact, ask questions, and even play with our guiding artists.

We're not limited by location: we can bring you musicians, artists, and thinkers from around the world, live. Included is an on-demand replay.

Inspiration Hidden: The Creative Music Studio Archives

Ideas are powerful. Ideas in action are profound. The core ideas that define this experience can be heard in our archives of original workshops and performances dating back to the 1970s.

You will be listening to music and interviews that, with little exception, have only been heard by those who were either present or within the organization.

Everything is available in a private SoundCloud stream you can take on the go.

A Community Of Creative Musicians

Our live workshops are famous for their feel of community, respect, and absolutely no judgement.

This is the spirit we bring to our online community.

And by joining us at this beginning stage, you are joining in the creation of this community.
