About VIRTUOSITY PODCAST

Welcome to the Virtuosity Podcast Patreon page! Hosted by musicians Timo Shanko and Ethan Wiley, you'll find our exclusive content, including the full 8 episodes of our John Coltrane audio-biography. We'll also have additional special content episodes not available on Spotify or YouTube, including podcasts on a "who's who" list of jazz and other composers/musicians, and the accompanying musical transcriptions.

We release our new podcasts, twice a month, the FIRST and THIRD Wednesdays of EACH MONTH, at 12 noon -- middle of the day, middle of the week!  A total of 24 episodes per year.

We have 3 very affordable tiers of membership that gives you access to Timo's exclusive transcriptions of the music that is discussed and analyzed. Also, video lessons on saxophone and bass (both upright and electric), and also music composition, harmonic analysis, and more.
