"Jam Central Station"

 

 

For Improvising Musicians Everywhere...

Like to jam? Who doesn't? One of the most pleasurable benefits of visiting Vision Music is the availability of audio backing tracks for your playing enjoyment.

Whether you're a current student, a casual visitor, a seasoned pro, or a first-year player, you're more than welcome to make use of a virtual band that's ready 24/7. Enjoy!

 

About the Jam Tracks...

The online jam tracks are all MIDI sequences, developed by the "Coach" and featuring a keyboard, bass, and drum trio. When you select a track from the menu (see below), the appropriate page will load and your chosen sequence will automatically play and continue looping until you leave that page.

Each selection is accompanied by a high-quality rhythm chart, showing the structure of the progression and the chord titles. Note the "mute" options on many tracks, allowing you to toggle off the bass or keyboard parts.
