Mel Martin's Masterclasses, clinics and residencies have long been a mainstay of educational institutions throughout the US. His real world approach and honest communicative skills have proven to immediately effect the thinking and direction of students. As a performer, he brings a wealth of experience with many Jazz and popular artists along with Big Band arrangements of his own originals and those of Benny Carter, Jimmy Heath, Joe Henderson, McCoy Tyner, Freddie Hubbard and others.
Mel Martin is currently accepting students for private study either live or via SKYPE.
SKYPE lessons are proving to be a solid and user-friendly way to teach students anywhere in the world. I have been able to help a number of players along w/ the use of e-mailing .pdf files of special exercises. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
for rates and info.
