Text Lessons with Chad LB
*Chad is not currently teaching private lessons outside of San Francisco Conservatory and the Text Lessons Subscription.
Lesson responses will always be within 24 hours, but will often feature a real time interaction pace when Chad is available for immediate communication. Live video calls are not included in the monthly subscription, however, Chad will always be available to listen to and send back video within 24 hours, and response time will often be much faster. Monthly subscription can be canceled at anytime.
Studio capacity is now full!

Are Text Lessons appropriate for any instrument?
Yes, Chad is happy to work with any melodic/pitched instrumentalist who wants to get better as a jazz musician and improviser.
Is this the only chance to enroll or will there be more opportunities later?
We don’t know for sure, but this may be the only time to enroll because Chad won’t necessarily be able to continue doing text lessons when he starts touring again after the pandemic. Enrollment will close by April 19th, if not earlier, depending on how fast the studio capacity fills up.
Are Text Lessons right for beginner players?
Chad is happy to work with all levels of players - everyone from a professional musician who wants to take their playing to the next level by refining their vocabulary and developing extended techniques, to a beginning improviser who has never actually improvised yet.
Are Text Lessons offered in multiple languages?
Chad will only give lessons in English, but one of the reasons why we’re excited about Text Lessons is that it will allow students to copy and paste any of Chad’s answers into Google Translate!
Can I cancel the subscription?
Yes! You can cancel the subscription at any time, even during the first month. So essentially, it’s $39.99 (early launch price) to give it a try and see if you like it!
Are these personalized lessons just for me?
Yes! Your monthly lesson assignments and practice plan will be specifically assigned to you based on your entrance video, preferred topics of improvement, and your amount of practice availability. Then, each month you will continue to receive assignments based on your progress, as you will continue to send videos of your improvising and your assignments. Chad will continue adapting your assignments and practice plan according to your progress and preferences.
How frequent are the lessons?
Assignments and practice plans will be given monthly, but you can text Chad 24/7 with questions and concerns regarding your practicing. Chad will always reply within 24 hours!
