  1. Joanne Heimer


    Wow, Mark has a lot of energy and passion! His stories were very interesting to listen to and playing really elevated me!

  2. Castor Sanchez


    mark whitfield used to be my favorite smooth jazz player! This course is more of a seminar or masterclass though. Mark is not really showing and explaining his lines, that would have been great.

  3. Robert Peterson


    Very intersting pieces of wisdom and i think you need to be at a certain level to really “get” the message. I whish Mark would have demonstrated more of his jazzy lines. The transcriptions are very good though and the looping function really helps.

  4. Jasper Frandsen


    Mark is talking a lot in the videos. His stories about playing with Sting, Stevie Wonder, Carmen McRae and so on, are interesting (and amusing) for sure, but once you’ve heard them, you’ve heard them… There is some great playing though and he is giving a good overview of comping for different styles. I guess I would have liked a little less talking and a bit more playing, which is why I’m not giving it a full 5 stars… The transcriptions are great though and the soundslice thing is making everything super clear for learning.

  5. Yannis Xanthopoulos


    I liked Mark’s stories 🙂 Seems like the guy has met or played with everyone! Good advice for us jazz guitarists and some very cool playing.

  6. Morgan Hampton


    Man this cat can GROOVE!!! Killer!!!!

  7. Jonathan Rosenberg


    Way too much talking and not enough playing. As he says in his own words, “he likes to drop names” and he does it very often. I wish that he would have taught more and talked less. Still was enjoyable though.

  8. Tal Ryan


    Mark is great!

  9. Lauren Cardiff


    There are no solos in this course but it is good if you want to learn rhyhtm playing in different styles!
