Passin' it down: Chick’s longtime goal –
to pay it forward to fellow musicians

That's what we mean by "One on One": the knowledge and experience that Chick has acquired over his storied career is presented to you as an individual. Consulting your personal judgment and aesthetic sensibilities.

To be applied by you in your own way to accomplish your own musical goals. More likely than not, you've never received musical instruction like this before.

“These workshops help me realize a goal that I’ve had for a long time now: giving a helping hand to other musicians. I want to spread the joy and understanding of music and art and encourage creativity.

The world needs more artists!” — Chick

Check out what some of the musicians who took in
the original workshop had to say:

"Thanks!!! Fantastic!!"

"Watching these unplanned moments of sheer musical genius are an incredible bonus to this workshop."

"I loved being in my living room in front of my piano listening and playing! So VERY VERY Thankful!"

It's SO much better than the two DVDs and VHS I paid $100's for in the '80s/'90s ! And here it's an 8-hour workshop for $200 !!! ... this is the best gift ever.

I think I am seeing how the 'keep it fresh' thing works, finally! Hope the next workshop will happen soon, would be awesome."

How much do you think it would cost to spend 9+hours with one of the great musicians of our time?

Berklee College of Music charges $1,200 for just one of their 12-week online courses. When we broadcast this workshop live with interactivity it was $199.

But now, in honor of kicking off the 2015 Chick Corea Music Workshop initiative in earnest, you can get this for 26% off for only $149.

For this week only, your One-on-One Workshop will also include these bonus items:

“Chick is an excellent teacher!”

FAQs

  • q-iconHow long will I have access to the workshop?

    Simple answer: this year, next year, and beyond … *
    *Not so fine print: to be real, we can’t promise “lifetime access” because there are acts of God, the legalities of the Internet could change or I could guess they could even outlaw jazz : ) But just so you know, we have no intention of making this workshop access a limited-time proposition. No worries.

  • q-iconBut I don’t play piano – is this going to be relevant to me??

    Chick’s workshops apply to all musicians (hey, Chick also plays drums, trumpet, marimba and even some guitar) – not just piano or keyboard players, and not just jazz musicians! No matter what kind of music you play, you’ll likely walk away with a new perspective that you can use to pursue your own musical aspirations.

  • q-iconHow are the live performances integrated into the workshop?

    Chick has always found that the easiest way to get across a new concept is to demonstrate it. With his trio on hand, he’s able to jump into a performance to illustrate a concept, when it calls for it! Seemingly complex ideas are made simple when Chick “shows you” what he means.

  • q-iconWill there be any drills I can practice?

    Yes! Chick demonstrates some of his personal drills and exercises, which have been successful for him, and you can apply them to your own musical adventures.
