    About Evan Price

    Hiya, string nerds, and welcome to my Transcription of the Month Club! Be you a student, devotee, amateur, or professional, if you play violin, viola, or cello and feel the need to get your hands on a little jazz, this Club is meant for you.

    Whether or not we feel confident as improvisers, every one of us craves fresh input now and then but we can't always find the time to go out and get it for ourselves. That's why I've created the TOMClub. It's a periodic infusion of ideas from some of the greatest improvisers on record—curated, transcribed, analyzed, and demonstrated by me, your intrepid guide.

    Here's how it works: about once a month, I choose a recorded, improvised performance by a great musician—typically someone whose playing has had a significant impact on their genre or whose playing typifies a particular musical approach. I then meticulously transcribe that performance and create ready-to-play sheet music of it, complete with bowings and fingering suggestions*. Then I create 2 videos of myself recreating that performance—one at a practice tempo and one up to speed. Club members can then see, hear, and absorb the subtleties of phrasing that make the music come off the page, giving you the opportunity to really get inside the mind and body of the performer. I also include a brief verbal analysis of each solo, giving you some ideas to take away from it, whether they be some juicy licks or patterns, a particular chord substitution, or some approach to soloing you may not have considered before. Then you get out your instrument and dive in!

    Although the choice of content is ultimately mine, input and requests are welcome! Let me know who you are and what you're looking for. The more feedback I get from my subscribers, the more useful the product will ultimately be. Ready to begin?

    *(Bowings should apply universally to all stringed instruments but fingerings are provided for violinists only, I'm afraid. You don't want to know what I would do on a cello.)
