I have had the honor of studying with Derek Sims the last 4 months and I have had many breakthroughs or AHA moments about my Jazz / Improv playing. Derek is helping refine the nuances of my jazz concepts, helping expand them with a solid foundation of theory, singing, history, chord structure, music shapes - ALL Based upon how I learn.....Derek's Ability to help you Identify HOW YOU LEARN is priceless. If you are looking to enhance your jazz improvisation, then I Highly recommend giving Derek Sims a Call at the Portland Jazz School
