Hi! I'm Danny Ziemann, and I'm thrilled to invite you to my free workshop, the:

First Call Bassist Roadmap

If you're a jazz bassist who loves

  • Collaborating with top musicians
  • Enabling other musicians to sound their best
  • Challenging yourself to learn and grow while having fun

... and wants to unlock the mystery behind

Then this workshop is for you!

I'll help you transform your playing and listening so that the top jazz musicians call you first to be their collaborator.


June 4 & June 5

75 minutes daily via Zoom

9am Pacific | 12pm Eastern | 6pm Central Europe

I've developed my professional career performing with some of the top jazz musicians including Jorge Rossy, Sheila Jordan, Dena DeRose, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Danny Grissett, Wycliffe Gordon, Bobby Militello, Nancy Kelly, Harry Allen, Dawn Thompson, Gary Versace, Matt Wilson, and loads more...

As a bassist, one thing above any other is the reason I get called back:

-->My ears<--

Even if there's no sheet music and I've never heard the tunes before, I'm not worried.

In fact, I've learned hundreds of tunes on the bandstand with no sheet music.

The people I play with expect that I can do this.

For many people, this would be scary. And truthfully, I didn't always have the ability to hear this way.

But I've dedicated years to developing my listening skills, and I know it's a skill anyone can learn.

(Really — I've helped countless people just like you develop them!)

I can trust my ears to guide me — and you can learn to trust yours, too.

So, let's dive in together!

In this free workshop, you'll learn...

  • A system for organizing what tunes you learn, and in which order... so you'll never forget them
  • What it takes to finally be able to throw away the real book for good
  • How to finally put all of the work you've done with ear training apps, interval singing, and chord identification to good use.
  • A method for systematically organizing your practice so you can experience less frustration... and have more fun.

We'll also have plenty of time for Q&A at the end, so you'll receive personalized attention from me!

In these two days, you'll jumpstart your creativity and motivation, and experience what it takes to be a first-call bassist. Plus, You'll be in a group of like-minded peers in a 100% positive environment.

Sounds great, right?
