Napa, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2014
ArtistWorks, the leading interactive lifestyle social learning platform, today announced the signing of world renowned guitarist Chuck Loeb to teach jazz guitar utilizing ArtistWorks’ patent-pending Video Exchange™ Feedback platform.
Set to launch Spring 2014, the new Online Jazz Guitar School with Chuck Loeb will crack the code of jazz improvisation, making it easy for anyone to become the jazz player they always wanted to be. The new school will also be the first ArtistWorks school to offer the next level of education game-ification, making the learning experience even more immersive by adding another level of interactivity. Participation is voluntary and each member who successfully completes the fun “Ear Loeb” ear training quizzes will receive a badge that will be displayed on their profile.
The new online venture combines hundreds of high definition video lessons from all star guitarist Chuck Loeb with a thriving community of guitar players. Each player can submit their own practice videos and get personalized video feedback from Loeb. These Video Exchange interactions are paired together on the site and become new lessons unto themselves. All students can learn from these lessons as they form a constantly growing and evolving curriculum reflecting the interests of the community.
The combination of step-by-step lesson videos, Video Exchange feedback from Loeb himself and an ever growing library of Video Exchange lessons from the community is a remarkable new way to learn. Loeb’s approach to teaching jazz improvisation cuts through the complexity and breaks it down for players of all levels and experience to comprehend.
