A Jazz Notebook is an expansion of the lesson and transcription section of my previous site (2010 - 2014). This collection of pages will function as an interactive and online musical journal, filled with complete transcriptions and excepts,explanations of technical, rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic ideas, practice strategies, and anything else that I might be working on that I think would be of interest to fellow jazz musicians, professional and aspiring alike.

While I have disabled comments on these pages, please feel free to send me an email at tim@timfischermusic.com to discuss anything posted on the site. I enjoy talking with fellow musicians about music, and always benefit from having such discussions. Since moving to St. Louis, I've begun working with long distance students through Skype. If this is something you are interested in, please feel free to contact me. In addition to the free educational materials available on this website, I have a great deal of experience teaching music at many different levels. I look forward to hearing from you!
