This category is listed first because it is the key to the castle. Having good learning methods will help you in everything you do—even beyond music. Stanley has developed an approach to learning called "Integral Optimization," which is really just a fancy term for being in the sweet spot in every possible way.

The one course currently in this category, "Keys to Optimal Learning for Musicians," is based on a 3-hour in-person seminar that Stanley has been teaching for nearly 20 years. The seminar distills the principles of IO and includes a small foray into practical application, but to fully explore it requires much more time. As this section grows Stanley will develop this material in much greater and the results will all be right here.

Some of this material is also included in the 6-week course "Stanley Jordan Jazz Guitar 101 Workshop" which fits into multiple categories including guitar and music theory.

(T1) Keys to Optimal Learning for Musicians

This is normally presented as a 3-hour small group seminar. After many years of development Stanley Jordan has distilled his learning method into a highly effective tool called "Integral Optimization." But don't worry about the fancy name--it just means getting yourself, and keeping yourself, in the perfect sweet spot in every way, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. 

And it's about how to leverage that highly optimal state to not only accelerate your learning process, but also to make your learnings more relevant and beneficial to your overall life.

This course is open to all regardless of level of skill, style of music, or instrument played. Even if music isn't your main thing you'll probably find something here that you can use in other areas of your life and work because the principles discussed are universal.
