Welcome to my Patreon page! I am a Juilliard-trained musician based in New York and have been transcribing music since I was a kid. Thank you for showing interest in joining this community of Jazz lovers! As a patron, your support will go a long way towards allowing me to continue this work at the highest level possible and will provide you with a huge educational resource. You won’t find these transcriptions anywhere else!
Getting inside music and finding out how and why it sounds the way it does has always been very compelling to me, and is vital to learning to play Jazz. Because Jazz is an improvised art form, most of it is not written down. In order to learn how to play Jazz you must transcribe the Masters and learn from them.
Over 15 years ago I started an ambitious project - transcribing the piano and bass parts to Brad Mehldau’s entire Art Of The Trio, Vol. 4 album. I worked on it for about two years, meticulously going through the album note-by-note over and over again. It was quite an undertaking, but the knowledge I gained was invaluable. Since that time, I’ve transcribed several other works of his from various albums and have many more in progress.
How It Works
As soon as you sign up at the $5 reward level or above, you are eligible to receive transcriptions from me (the number you can receive is based on the reward tier you sign up for). You can send me a message through the Patreon messaging system (or email me at jazznook77 at gmail dot com) to request links to download PDFs.Also, at the beginning of each month, after all of the pledges have gone through, I will send you a message and ask which transcription(s) you would like for the month. Another great benefit, is that once you've signed up (at the $5 level or above) you will get PDFs of all new transcriptions that I do going forward! You can find the complete list of my transcriptions that are available in this post. Note: Transcriptions are only available to patrons at the $5 level and above.
As I’m sure you can imagine, these transcriptions are very difficult and time consuming. I would love to continue doing more of Brad’s works and even branch out to other musicians as well. Thank you again for taking the time to consider supporting my work!
A Note About Commissions
I am available to do transcriptions on commission. Patrons can use half of the money they've pledged to go towards the cost of a commission. The other portion can be covered using PayPal, or Venmo. Please send me a message through Patreon or email me at jazznook77 at gmail dot com to get a quote!
