HSP; The 3-Step Framework to Play What You Hear in Your Head & Sound Like a Pro

Donna Admin · February 19, 2020

Do you want to be that musician that can play what they hear in their head instead of worrying about whether what they play will sound cool enough.

Or that player with the huge sound that projects throughout the room instead of not being able to hear yourself …….or worse, not having the audience hear you.

Or that musician that can learn songs and licks so they sound authentic, instead of your audience not having any idea what you just played.

One of the biggest pain points for musicians is that they always feel like they don’t sound as good as everyone else…No matter what they practice, it just doesn’t sound right.

They’ll play through a song but always have to stop and fix the same mistakes every time. Whether it’s squeaking on the same pitch, not hitting the altissimo pitch at the peak of the solo or their fingers are sluggish and the phrase sounds jumbled.

They’ll work on transcribing a phrase or solo, but when it comes time to play along with the recording, or play it live, it’s lost…they forget the pattern and they get lost in the music.

And then they feel bad about their playing, and sometimes even bad about themselves, and they’ll say stuff like, “I’ll never be able to improvise because I can’t play anything that sounds cool. Or, I’m too embarrassed to play that song in public because I’m afraid I’ll squeak on every note. Or, my wife and kids don’t want me practicing when they’re home because they said it gives them a headache and it sounds like a lot of noise. 

Can you relate?

All these pain points stem from one thing…

And it’s something that can hold you back, that can frustrate you and prevent you from moving forward with your performing.

And it’s this – it’s using the wrong approach to learning music.

In order to really nail that lick or memorize that tune so it’s internalized, or play in tune and get the pitches to come out consistently, you need a new approach…a new framework.

Your question right now is probably, what is this magic framework that can solve all my problems?

It’s my HSP Framework; the 3-step framework to play what you hear in your head & sound like a pro.

When you discover this new way to approach learning music, no matter what genre, you’ll be more confident with your performance, and here’s why…

I’ve used this framework on myself, and with all my students, even my youngest students at ages 7 and 8  for over 30 years.

And when my students have followed this, they’ve gotten a better understanding of the music, sounded more authentic to the style of music they were playing, and had more confidence performing it in public. 

With this framework, my students learned how to play songs that sounded the way they knew them, after they’ve only learned how to play even just 5 notes.

Students like Len, a businessman who has played drums in bands for many years and recently took up the saxophone. He was having difficulty making his favorite solos sound like the version he heard on the radio. We’ve been using the HSP Framework to not only learn those solos, but also play them with all the nuances and emotion from the original recording. This framework improved his ear training so much, that in the last few months he was able to figure out the classic Phil Woods’ solo to Just the Way You Are. And the HSP Framework has also been helping him play more in tune too.

And students like Yazmeen, who just started playing saxophone less than 6 months ago, and can now play around 15 tunes in many different keys. She knows all her major scales and arpeggios. She’s even started to learn voice leading for simple chord progressions.

Do YOU want those kinds of results? 

You can get them, with my new course, HSP: The 3-step framework to play what you hear in your head and sound like a pro

what’s in this course?

There are lessons on how to use the HSP Framework to improve your tone, play more in tune, project your sound more, and expand your range both low and high.

Lessons on how to improve your technique so you can coordinate your fingers and articulation.

How to learn tunes and licks so you have more vocabulary to use when improvising.

There’s even a lesson showing you how to create your own vocabulary, so you never run out of things to play.

And there are Bonuses!

The 1st Bonus deals with tone.

Are you having difficulty playing in tune, especially in the upper register?

Is it really hard to project your tone?

There’s two exercises to improve your tone and intonation, which will help you project your sound more… Complete with a video lesson and pdf’s for all saxes. These are the same exercises my students and I play everyday. I especially use these when trying out new mouthpieces, reeds and horns.

Does learning tunes and solos by ear sound impossible?

The 2nd Bonus will help you learn songs and solos using a very-popular jazz classic. 

You will be guided through one chorus and a really cool, advanced lick from Dexter Gordon’s solo on  Billie’s Bounce using my HSP framework.

But wait! There’s more…

To make this a no-brainer, I’m also adding another Bonus. 

Have you ever wondered how people figure out the key of a song without having the sheet music?

You will discover how to find out the key in the 3rd Bonus, where we go through using the HSP framework on a few examples from different genres of music. And I share some really cool solos you should learn too.

You get the lessons on improving your tone, technique, learning songs & licks by ear and creating your own vocabulary, plus the three Bonuses: 

The 2 tone exercises to improve your intonation and projection…

A guided video lesson to learn important vocabulary from Dexter Gordon’s take on Billie’s Bounce…

And a video lesson that’s like a private lesson with me, where I guide you into figuring out the key for a number of songs in various genres.

You get all of this for only $99.
