sailbyrnes ,

This has become a critical part of my day!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have been listening every day for over a year and this wonderful podcast has become an important way to start my day. I begin my long commute every day with You’ll Hear It. I have learned so much over the last year.

I only started playing guitar a few years ago as I approached 50 and had never played music before. After a 2 years of playing, I aspired learn how to play jazz and it seemed overwhelming to a novice. Listening to this podcast everyday, however, my fear has gone away and I love the way the guys “drop” “knowledge” every day in bite size chunks.

A truly great job by exceptional musical educators!

Thanks guys,
Bruce

JazzAndBread ,

Thoughtful and provocative daily inspiration for the jazz pianist

The amount of quality content these two produce on a daily basis is incredible!

Pasquinn ,

Fantastic! My favorite podcast.

I'd rate this 5 to fifth power stars if I could! My favorite podcast, of any genre. It's like hanging with two pros who tolerate this newbie.
