"JAZZ COMBO IS A REMARKABLE COURSE..."

 

"​...though his primary instrument is the bass, Prof. Collins can easily demonstrate a riff or rhythm on any of the instruments in the combos, and such breadth of skill on many instruments is a great advantage in helping the individual players and combos push beyond current skill levels."

-Dr. Jay Carlander, Jazz Combo Class

"COMBO TEACHING AND PRIVATE LESSONS..."  

 

"Kim Collins is a phenomenal player and easily one of the best music instructors I've ever had. Not only has he made me a better bass player but a better musician overall. Through his combo teachings and private lessons I've learned more about music in 2 years than I have my whole life."

-Ryan Guajardo, SB City College
