Ready to make noticable progress with your playing?
“Before I joined I felt like I'd hit a plateau and didn't know how to move past it. After being a member for less than 2 weeks I already feel so much improvement. I feel incredibly inspired and motivated now that I have a very specific and detailed roadmap to follow.”
“Just wanted to say how totally inspired I am since becoming a member. What you have done for me has worked tenfold...I want to pick up the horn every day and practice. 3 months ago I was losing all my enthusiasm for playing...now I am back into the journey big time.”
"Adopting Bob's system of practicing has allowed me to do a 'quantum leap' on the level of my playing.”
Ivan Iriarte - Full-time doctor, part-time alto saxophonist
"Your lessons are helping me so very much! Joining your Virtual Studio is the best musical thing I have done for myself in my entire life."
“This is precisely the advice I needed. I'm excited about working hard on everything you've detailed.”
"Jazz Is the Teacher (Funk Is the Preacher)”
James Blood Ulmer
I created the Virtual Studio in 2010 as an online hub for my private students while I was touring with John Mayer.
12 years later It's evolved into a premier interactive learning environment where I've been able to help thousands of improvisers achieve breakthroughs in their playing.
My 7T Practice Framework™ has served as a powerful outline to help players synthesize the universe of things one could be practicing, into the essential fundamentals that lead to real progress.
The Virtual Studio is the place for intermediate to advanced instrumentalists to take their improvising to new levels.
My goal is to coach you to become your own best teacher.

"Bob's lessons have taught me the value of internalizing the music and letting my ears and brain do the work rather than my eyes. Prior to joining the studio I struggled to play jazz without charts. Now I can play around 8 standards confidently on a gig, without the chart and with visualizing the changes.”

2. Step-by-step courses
Progress through self-paced courses covering improvisational concepts, Blues foundations, transcription case-studies, tune-learning and more.
Start with the transformational Visual Technique for Improvisation Course: A Roadmap for Thinking Ahead on Chord Changes.
“The Visual Technique for Improvisation course has been huge. I've been working on that all year. It made me realize how much I wasn't really thinking or aware of what I was playing while I was playing. The idea of practicing thinking ahead is so huge, and it unravelled a lot of fundamental issues I need to address in my playing!”
3. Monthly Focus Roadmap
Making progress with jazz improvisation requires having a clear idea of what to practice and how to practice effectively.
Monthly Challenges and Practice Roadmaps help you address specific things that will make a meaningful difference.
“I'm noticing my playing improve in such a small amount of time. Your lessons are helping me structure my practice time better and I've rediscovered my passion for playing saxophone again!!”
"I really enjoy the format and style of your lessons, as well as the monthly challenges. The topics are easy to grasp, yet difficult to master, which is ideal for becoming a better player.”
4. Feedback to help you grow
Each month I highlight a specific solo for us to study. We'll investigate key moments and I'll coach you through learning it by ear. This is ear-training, vocabulary development, and tune-learning all in one!

“Thank you so much for this, Bob! Where else in the world does a novice get individualized help from a legend?! Much appreciated.”
5. Stablemates Community
Whether it's getting answers to your questions, discussing practice routine strategies, or sharing your lightbulb moments, our community is a vibrant scene connecting you to players around the globe who are as passionate about this musical journey as you are.
“I struggle with the isolation of living in a small community with very few experienced musicians, so it’s awesome to be able to share ideas with other players and ask for help when things have me stumped.”
Not just for saxophonists...
"Bob's lessons have absolutely revolutionized my relationship to music and how I approach practicing. I feel so much more comfortable approaching solos with much faster runs than I ever thought I'd be able to hear. I'm also a lot less afraid of blowing over backbeat grooves than before!"
"Joining Bob’s Virtual Studio has been one of the great investments I’ve made into my musical life. One of the most important things Bob teaches you to do is focus. How you practice is as important (or even more so) than the what!"
“My advancement as a musician has been very stagnant, uninspired, and unfocused for a few years now. Happy to say you've relit the fire under me and I've been having the most focused, productive, and inspired practice I've had in years!”
