The Dao of Jazz : Harnessing Flow

We all wish the best for our loved ones; for our children to thrive in school, for our partners to find fulfilling jobs, for our parents to be healthy and happy, but turning that wish into reality can be so challenging in this world. Frustration can build a wall between us, make it hard to find common ground and Compassion in the struggles we all face every day. 

The Dao of Jazz : Harnessing Flow will give you the tools to break down this wall, with easy and fun music Games, embedded with mindfulness and Creative discovery. In 10 weeks of weekly video lessons, as well as weekly live sessions for you to get help with the course material tailored to your needs and situations.


Designed to be together, with no previous knowledge of Music necessary, these Games will guide you and another through finding notes, writing music, clapping rhythms, and unlocking your voice, all without sheet music.

With emergent learning built into the 4 Core Games of Music is Easy, you will be given they keys to a Toolbox of Games and Exercises that can be used by and with learners of any age, any instrument, any ability, and any Neurodiversity.
