LEARN ONLINE AT YOUR OWN PACE!
For musicians of all skill levels, Art of Reggae offers top rankin’ and inspired Lessons, Courses, Practice Loops and Curated Playlists that unlock the mysteries of this profound and transformational musical artform presented by master level performers who are also brilliant educators.
INITIAL OFFERINGS ARE FOR KEYBOARDS ONLY. Courses on guitar, bass, drums and percussion will be added as the site grows.
You’ll learn all aspects of reggae keyboard playing starting with beginning theory, then you’ll learn how to groove deeply with courses on rhythm reggae piano and organ playing. You’ll explore the many variations of the ‘bubble,’ all the subtleties of the piano chop and how the difference between swing vs. straight 8th feel works in reggae. You’ll also learn how to improve hand independence for playing horn and lead lines, how to use live keyboard dub effects, and then you’ll learn the use of synthesizers and the clavinet and so much more.
Here you’ll find many amazing play-along tracks that include original songs composed specifically for the courses and one-shots recorded by the Art of Reggae band. You’ll also find electronic re-makes of many popular Jamaican riddims. You can choose versions of the practice loops that are specific for your instrument in which that instrument is muted. For instance, if you’re a keyboard player, you can choose the practice loop version that has the keyboards muted. You can use any of these loops to practice any of the concepts you are learning.
It’s an online community of reggae musician enthusiasts of all levels from across the globe. Connect with fellow reggae music lovers to ask and get answers to questions; to make new friends, reason and share your enthusiasm; to deepen your learning. The forum is monitored by Art of Reggae educators who will chime in with expert answers, insights and advice!
Right now we have only one video lesson available, which is our viral Youtube offering with Tuff Lion, “The Art of Reggae Guitar.” It’s amazing! We also have a number of play along tracks for guitar in the practice loops section. We will be adding a complete reggae guitar course and some one shots with Tuff Lion, Fall, 2021.
