Find the tools and guidance here at Music Savvy to more easily play jazz better than you ever thought possible.
My name is Michael Lake and I am the guy behind Music Savvy.
I am a Grammy-nominated trombonist who loves creating music and video, writing, teaching, and helping musicians make the most of their talents and their life’s work. I’m also Dad to two very special young men.
Throughout my entire business career, I never stopped creating and playing music. I was lucky enough to help build two thriving financial companies with my best friends, and I learned a ton about life and business along the way. But three years ago, I said goodbye to my business buddies so that I could do full-time what I most wanted to do, which is help musicians.
Throughout these last three years, I’ve published 10 books and created two successful courses on improvisation, interviewed over 75 leading jazz musicians, I write a popular blog, and continue to help a wide range of musicians promote and market themselves online.

Check out these 10 free lessons from the over 60 videos originally created for TikTok and now organized for this complete course on improvisation.
Seven categories include Ear Training, Music Theory, Time & Rhythm, Interviews with Masters, Deep Thinking, The Jazz Language, and lots of Practical Tips.
If entertaining 3-minute lessons packed with practical insights, exercises, and examples sound like something that can help elevate your improvisation game, this is for you.
This is just a fake book example for the type of website I can build for you. Just trying to use a little humor here!
