The 20 Week Comeback Player Course is all about strategy and includes five long 45-60 minute lessons/coaching sessions AND fifteen brief 30 minute review lessons/coaching sessions with Kurt via phone or skype audio.
If you make a special request, I can transfer the entire course onto DVDs and mail them to you priority mail in the U.S.A. These won't be fancy dvd's with pretty designs and text...just simple good quality dvd's that will make it possible not to have to mess around with computers and internet. Also, see the optional payment by mail if you don't like having your credit cards all over the internet. So, essentially, you can do it all by mail and even do your course without turning on your computer if you so desire! FEE: $75
In a nutshell, you will be meeting with Kurt each week for the duration of the course: 20 Weeks! When you haven't played for 10 years - 50 years you certainly haven't invested any time or money in yourself, your music, and your hobby. You MUST catch up and NOW is that time!
Payment Can Be Sent Via Priority Mail Using A U.S. Postal Money Order if you prefer not using your card for this amount online. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
*It truly doesn't matter which brass instrument you play: TRUMPET, TROMBONE, FRENCH HORN, BARITONE, EUPHONIUM, TUBA. When it comes to getting back on your horn, the strategy and practice is the same for all brass players and is included in this course.
*These five longer lessons are spread strategically through the 20 week course to ensure your ultimate success: Usually one of these sessions is taken during Week 1 and the 5th long session is taken at the very last week of this 20 week course. The other 3 longer sessions can be spread throughout as needed. The 15 shorter review sessions are pretty much every week through the course.
*This 20 week course also gives you warm up and practice strategies.
*Each week has a video by me for you to watch. 20 Videos Lessons in All!
*I introduce new techniques, tell you EXACTLY how to practice including HOW LONG to practice each day!
*PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS: This is a momentum based course up until Week 10. Daily practice starts out at 15 minutes a day and gradually increases to 1 hour a day by Week 10. After Week 10,you have the option to continue staying at 1 hour of practice each day, but you also have the freedom to move up to 2 hours a day if you were so inclined.
*The course also suggest the appropriate book for all instruments so whether you play trumpet, trombone, french horn, baritone, or tuba, the appropriate book will be suggested for you and exactly what exercises need to be practiced out of that particular book.
***PLUS tons of Bonus Videos regarding innovative techniques at the end of many of the weekly video lessons.
***If you just think of it in terms of 20 "live" lessons with a professional, then you know you would likely have to pay close to $1000 just for those lessons with a local professional brass teacher in your area...AND those lessons would be general, shotgun non-specific lessons. This is what makes this course a very smart investment because you get all 20 lessons with Kurt plus the complete 20 week VIDEO guide and strategy to ensure your come back to the horn is a success. In each video lesson, Kurt talks, teaches, and demonstrates EXACTLY what you need to do.
Imagine being in a classroom and getting 80% of the materials down and understood, but being nagged by the 20% you couldn't quite absorb, BUT having a complete recording of every class discussion so that you could sift through that 20% for another look at home and at your leisure. It means you WILL be successful coming back to your horn and on to having fun with playing, practicing, and maybe even performing in some of your local ensembles.
This is a very well thought out design and strategy for the Comeback Player!
At this stage in your life, you have figured this out: Your time on the planet is about QUALITY not quantity. It's time to start making every day count in your life. This course will be a tremendous push in the direction of quality and enjoyment!
This 20 week course comes in a compressed zip file and is around 1.3 gigs so make sure you are using a fast internet speed and have enough storage on your device.
You REALLY need to double check your storage space on your device and have uninterrupted internet service. I do not recommend downloading this to a phone. It is much better to download first to a Computer, Mac, or Laptop. If you later want to transfer some lessons to your phone, that is fine and should work.
Internet not too fast? When that happens, I head to Starbucks during late morning or mid-afternoons and the speed is usually quite fast - 100mbps!
lol last resort: McDonalds! Even if you are out in the boonies, you should be able to find a Mcdonalds somewhere near the highway, right? They have free internet and it is decently fast at 20mbps.
