  1. Brenden, thank you for excellent podcast where you explain and repeat what you explained, you laugh at yourself and even talk to your dog. You not only are an excellent, methodical teacher, but real and down to earth with not a dull moment in your podcast. At last after being as old as your grandmother, I can finally get answers to all my questions about music. I am low advanced and know theory but now I can say I KNOW. Thank you so much.

  2. Awesome podcasts man! Your way of teaching jazz piano is easy to grasps and learn! Thanks so much for these podcasts! I love how you teach and are always willing to share these skills with us! I’ll be keeping up with you all the way! Thank you so much!
